Peruvian Pima Cotton Feild

Better Factories:

We are proud to work with full-service manufacturer, Novablue SAC. Located in Lima, Peru, they are part of the Fiber, Yarn, and Thread Mills Industry there. With a lot of communication, collaboration and transparency, we have built confidence in our relationship and the production quality we get from Novablue. They work with small quantity production runs resulting in less overconsumption and waste. The Novablue team are experts at getting the best yields during the fabric cutting process and the quality of the garments they produce are of the utmost importance to the foundation of their company.

Novablue works very closely with a small, locally trusted group of fabric mills that use GOTS certified organic cotton. They also own their own SMETA compliant cutting and sewing facility where employees are paid fair wages and are given open workspace that doesn’t induce worker health risks that have historically been problematic in garment production around the world.

Peruvian Woman Sewing

Working with production companies like Novablue allows us to support the talented, hard-working people and communities that are trying to do better in our industry and that are behind the clothes we all wear. Quality is the heart of everything we create here at LOVETRUST so we think its important to celebrate not only the women who wear and inspire our clothing but also the people who beautifully craft them.

 

Less Waste in our Packaging:

We have a social responsibility to our customers and the planet to not repeat the careless practices of the past. In the hopes of eliminating waste, we limit our use of hangtags and never use plastic, swift tacks since in most cased they just end up in landfills. We try to use as little packaging as possible while keeping the product protected on its way to you.

Since less waste is a fundamental principle in truly green practices, we use that standard across all facets of our business including our packaging. LOVETRUST furthers our sustainability commitments by working with packaging suppliers like noissue, who pledge their own commitments to providing beautiful, and sustainable materials for businesses all over the globe. The noissue shipping mailers we use are made of a compostable corn material and the tissue we wrap your order in is made from recycled paper. Even the shipping labels we use are compostable. Noissue also permits small minimum quantity orders which allows us to stock only what we need to fulfill your order and not over-consume ourselves.

A Note for the Future:

As a small, independent brand, we know we have a long path ahead in meeting all our sustainability goals. There’s still so much we have on our list, but we aim to be as responsible and ethical as possible — one collection at a time.

If there’s anything you want to see us do more of or an eco-friendly measure that’s dear to you, we’d love to hear about it! Contact us anytime. Progress happens when we work together to achieve it.
