OUR RESPONSIBILITY

 

Shop Louee is a conscious design house celebrating life under the sun, beauty in simplicity and local craftsmanship. Proudly Australian designed and made, Shop Louee is committed to beautiful design while treading lightly on our environment.

 As a new label, we are working hard to make decisions from the outset that always consider people, the planet and our business. We are committed to transparency and continuous learning and discovery, so we can always uphold our environmental and social values. 

While we undergo this journey, you can find out more information about our operations below. 

For any questions you may have, please do reach out to hello@shoplouee.com

 

ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF COUNTRY

Shop Louee acknowledges and respects the Traditional Owners as the original custodians of this beautiful land and water, their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land we live and work on, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation and pay our respect to their Elders, past present and emerging. 

 

MADE TO ORDER

While Shop Louee establishes itself, majority of our garments are made in-house and by the Shop Louee team once you place your order. This means our team creates the patterns, cuts the fabric and sews your garment all under the one roof. When times get a little busy, we outsource some garments with the help of local Melbourne makers. By following this process, we can directly manage waste and ensure we do not hold any unnecessary stock that may not sell. 

When the time comes for Shop Louee to expand, we are committed to supporting and working with Australian makers who will be able to support the Shop Louee values.

 

OUR MATERIALS

To achieve beautiful timeless pieces, we rely on quality made garments and high quality fabric. Shop Louee primarily uses linen - a natural, biodegradable fabric spun from certified European Flax. 

Both our linen fabric and woven labels are certified to OEKO-TEX Standard 100.

 

OUR PACKAGING 

We understand many resources go into preparing a garment for sale. Where possible, we've selected recycled or compostable options. Our woven labels are used from off-cut polyester fabric and recycled thread that would have otherwise gone to landfill. Our Swing tags are embossed on recycled stock and all Shop Louee garments are sent out in biodegradable postage bags.
