LaBante London is a labour of love, born out of a combined love of animals, fashion and the wider planet.
At LaBante London the state of the environment is of utmost importance. Their small contribution in reducing plastic ending up in the oceans by using recycled polyester for the interior in all of their handbags.
Recycled polyester is made by breaking down single use plastic bottles (PET bottles) into pellets, these are then melted, cooled and spun into yarn. So instead of using new fabrics (which waste water) they use this recycled fabric, which prevents more plastic from being dumped into landfills or our oceans. They also use recycled fabrics for dust bags, and paper swing tags are recycled as well as recyclable.
LaBante London’s range of sunglasses are made from 100% recycled wood and are packaged in bamboo, the cardboard boxes are also environmentally friendly.
They have a zero waste packaging system.
“The world will grow more prosperous if people shared what little they have rather than hoard everything for themselves.”
LaBante London Founder Vanita Badlani Bagri
Walking in sync with people from all races and backgrounds is very important. People are part of LaBante London’s extended family, so they choose to give back to that family.
With 10% of LaBante London’s profits going to Charitable causes, they are trying to raise awareness and support for various charities every season.
When you buy a LaBante London product you can choose the cause that resonates most with you, they then ensure 10% of the profit of sale goes directly to that charity to help build a better future.
Animals are important to life as we know it. There’s a huge imbalance in the environment today because we have taken from it but not given anything back. No animal needs to be killed to enjoy luxurious fashion.
LaBante London have proved time and time again that cruelty need not go hand in hand with beauty. Each of their collections are made from beautiful recycled fabrics, fine vegan leather like Luxe Polyeuthrane, microfibre and recycled vegetable fibres.
No animal based dyes and glues are used in the manufacturing process.
LaBante London are a Peta Approved Vegan brand, which means that the owners of the company have signed a document stating that they do not and will never use animal based ingredients in their products and they stand committed to their promise!
What this implies is that the suppliers are also held to a strict code of keeping an audit trail on all their accessories used in the manufacturing process – guaranteeing that LaBante London’s products always stay cruelty free and vegan.
