We’re all working towards a more ethical and sustainable world. As a company, Love LUZ is committed to making sure that everything we sell is manufactured ethically.
We believe that it’s important to be aware of the ways in which garments are supplied and manufactured, and in turn, ensure that the brands we sell comply with the laws and regulations in the countries in which they operate. Love LUZ will not knowingly trade with any brand or supplier that does not comply with these laws and regulations.
What follows are statements from the majority of the brands we offer regarding their manufacturing processes. We will always recommend our customers do their own independent research into the brands they are looking at using for fulfilling their orders through our website.
“We’re passionate about doing things the right way at AWDis, which is why we only use WRAP certified factories. We and our global partners have a shared commitment to fair and safe working practices throughout our supply chain. We recognise our responsibility to ensure the manufacturing methods used match the ideals of those that wear and love our products.
“We recognise that our customers and end users have a vested interest in ethical and environmental considerations when it comes to manufacturing.”
“Beechfield Brands is firmly committed to offering good value products with industry leading quality standards, but not at the expense of any individual in the supply chain, nor with unacceptable environmental impact. Beechfield Brands do not condone the use of any forced or coerced labour and we implement a strict assessment process with our suppliers to ensure that factories meet, or exceed, applicable local standardsin terms of wages, health and safety, welfare and human rights.
“Beechfield Brands is committed to protecting the quality of the environment through sound environmental practice, ensuring that factories meet or exceed local environmental laws in an effort to reduce waste and minimise the environmental impact of their operations.”

“Since day one in 2011, Stanley/Stella has embraced the Fair Wear Foundation initiatives and has been focusing on cooperating in a responsible way with its suppliers, to the benefit of all workers. Respect for the planet is also strongly rooted in our DNA, as 100% of our cotton is certified organic (by GOTS or OCS), grown without pesticides, GMOs or chemical fertilisers. Other raw materials are also highly ranked on the “sustainability scale”: recycled polyester, Modal®, Tencel®, linen, and more.
“In order to build strong and close partnerships with production facilities, Stanley/Stella has decided to select a very limited number of factories to work with, in a limited number of countries. The members of the Stanley/Stella board have made an important step towards in- creased transparency. Based on a proposal supported by the CEO and the newly appointed Sustainability Manager, we publicly name all of our factories, giving more weight to the trans- parency objective than to the business interests of keeping confidentiality.”
