As you know, the situation across the world has been changing every day. As of March 24th, the government of India has declared a 21 day lock down. This means all the workshops Passion Lilie has teamed up with must close for 21 days. The owners of these workshops have committed to paying salaries during this closure. These owners are small business owners with families of their own to support. Passion Lilie, would like to help them, but our cash flow has also been challenged during this difficult time.

We are asking those who can to please donate to our Resilience Fund. All the money will go directly to paying wages for the artisans in India who make Passion Lilie’s products. Please note this donation will be in addition to the wages we already pay our team for the work they do for Passion Lilie.

Please choose the amount you would like to give. All donations of $50 and over will receive a free tote bag and headband. If you choose to give over $100, please increase the quantities. 

We measure sustainability from the beginning of the production process to the end of a product's life. We're committed to creating products that have a positive impact on the people who create them and minimizing our impact on the planet.

We aim to be open and transparent about our practices and are screened members of the Fair Trade Federation. Please contact us if you have any questions about our practices.

Sustainable Materials

We are dedicated to sourcing thoughtfully: we use materials that will not harm people or the planet. Recognizing the negative impact of pesticides on biodiversity and the health of farming communities, we use durable natural fibers, organic cotton when we can, and nontoxic dyes.

Ethical Production

We believe in nurturing economic sustainability by collaborating with partners in India who pay fair and living wages, create a safe and healthy work environment, and invest in the overall wellbeing of the artisans. Sustainable change is about going beyond fair wages. That's why we provide our artisan partners with opportunities for community development and to further their skills.

Transportation

We recognize the importance of minimizing emissions that contribute to climate change. We work to minimize our transportation footprint by:

  • Sourcing materials from areas local to where we produce;
  • Purchasing carbon offsets to compensate for Passion Lilie's shipping from India to the U.S. and to our customers by purchasing carbon offsets; and
  • Encouraging our customers to purchase carbon offsets at checkout.

Product Use

We create high-quality, timeless products, and we educate our customers on how to care for their purchase to extend the life cycle of the product. We are against overconsumption and fast fashion. We understand that not everyone can afford sustainable fashion, which is why we try to offer the best price possible and run sales when we can—so our products are more accessible to customers of all economic backgrounds.

End of Life

All of our products are made from natural fibers and are biodegradable. We hope to soon offer a reseller program to create a closed-loop production process. Until then, to avoid your garments ending up in a landfill, we recommend reselling or donating your unwanted garments to a friend or a trusted organization. If you happen to tear or stain your Passion Lilie garments to the point that they are unwearable, we suggest cutting them into rags or, for the creative people, upcycle them into something new!
