Passion Lilie is a fair trade and sustainable apparel brand with a mission to help artisans empower themselves by creating dignified employment opportunities. As a fair-trade company, Passion Lilie currently works with several producer groups in India. They provide fair wages and work with organizations that ensure safe and healthy working conditions for their artisans. For them, it is also important to give each worker a voice and make sure they are genuinely happy and comfortable with their job. This can mean everything from clean water to time off. By offering fair wages, healthy working conditions, and long-term employment to artisans in India, these job opportunities lead to sustainable societies and a better world. Passion Lilie is also committed to using eco-friendly materials and preserving the artistic and cultural talents of their craftspeople. Their beautiful, ethical clothing allows you to make a global impact while still looking fashionable. Passion Lilie proudly contributes to keeping ancient artisanal dyeing and weaving traditions alive in India. Their artisans strike the perfect balance between old, time-honored traditions and new best practices. By incorporating the leading apparel and fabric manufacturing techniques into the production process, they ensure their customers receive products of the highest quality. While their apparel is produced in India, each design is made in New Orleans, Louisiana by the founder and designer, Katie Schmidt. Passion Lilie is always looking for ways to treat the environment better, which is why more and more of their products are made with organic, pesticide-free, non-GMO cotton. In addition, they use azo-free, organic, and natural dyes. At every step in the supply chain, they make sure they are using sustainable materials to reduce the impact on the environment. They are also dedicated to preserving the environment through the use of natural energy, waste reduction, and water reduction. Their fabrics are washed by hand in local waterways and dried in the sun, and leftover pieces become the material for various accessories and handicrafts.
