Hello, thank you so much for stopping by! I’m Carly, founder of Love & Unique.
I made my first tee back in 2018 as a gift for a friend. In March 2020 (when the world came to a standstill!) I started making clothes from my kitchen table and in July 2020 I moved into my first studio.
I personally design all our items and I pride myself on creating beautiful clothing, supporting charities and making people feel amazing in the clothes they wear.
I’m a huge believer in real sustainability coming from clothes that are made to last, that are made using the best quality fabrics and clothes that people love to wear again and again and again. We always make clothes in small runs to avoid wastage and we promise to never send any clothing to landfill.
I am incredibly proud to have recently been able to start outsourcing some of our production enabling us to slowly expand our garment and size range. This has also enabled me to expand the workforce and charities I am able to support through this business. We now have a fantastic small team making items in our U.K. based studio where all the items are designed, and we have recently started working with an amazing small team in Istanbul. We have an incredibly good working relationship between the two teams and are in contact on a weekly basis.
We have also managed to reduce our carbon footprint by outsourcing to Istanbul as the fabric used for our garments has less air mile journeys to travel. The factory we use is registered and audited by SMETA, WRAP, SA8000, SEDEX, ETI, SAC & BSCI meaning all conditions, standards and production are of the highest industry standards.
Transparency is hugely important to me and I think everyone should know exactly how and where their clothes are made. If there is anything else you would like to know please drop us an email and we will get back to you ASAP.
We love to see you in the clothes so please feel free to tag us in any photos. Please use #loveandunique to be featured.
