Let's talk... fairtrade

Because what exactly is fairtrade? Why is fairtrade important? And what are Fairtrade Week & World Fairtrade Day? Since fair is literally our middle name, fairtrade is one of the key aspects of our company. Learn all about it in our blog.
For over 14 years Mónica Lavandera, the company’s founder and creative director, has been offering garments that she herself has designed and patterned.
Lavandera has its own vocabulary of shapes and volumes that define the brand’s unique character. The company embraces the idea of a continuous collection in which the timelessness of garments depends on the wearer rather than passing trends.
The company has been committed to sustainability since its founding. Lavadera firmly believes in protecting the planet – from the selection of materials to the final finished product.
