Our Values & Sustainability
The fabric we use exclusively for our bras and underwear is GOTS certified organic cotton which has been grown in Turkey and knitted in Portugal. The GOTS certification also applies to the dyes that are used for the fabric. Being certified by GOTS means we know that no pesticides, insecticides or toxic chemicals have been used to grow the cotton. This is crucial to the health of the farmers and the surrounding environment. Conventional cotton is renowned for being grown in arid areas, using an incredible amount of water. Organic cotton however is able to use up to 80% irrigated rainwater. We believe in choosing better fabrics for people and the planet.
Cruelty Free & Vegan
At Lela we believe strongly in animal rights and have made a choice to never use animal derived materials. This means all products are vegan, and you won’t find any wool or silk within our products.
Made Ethically In Sydney
All garments are not only designed in Sydney but manufactured here also. We take pride being able to work with a small factory that we visit regularly, as well as being able to support the manufacturing industry in Australia. The garment workers are paid above award wage, they do not work over 7.5 hours a day, and OHS standards are practiced.
