Global Free Style Fashion are strong supporters of ethically produced products and King Louie ticks all our boxes. King Louie was created in the early 1980’s in Amsterdam by Ann Berlips and George Cramer. Envisioned from their passion for vintage inspired clothing that makes people happy. King Louie aims to contribute to a better world, accepting responsibility for the people making the clothes. They work only with manufacturers guaranteeing adequate working conditions. This is why King Louie became a member of Fair Wear Foundation in 2015, an independent organisation committed to improving working conditions in the clothing industry. Fair Wear has strict inspections on any non-compliance with child labour and excessive working hour’s requirements, and on the working environment being healthy and safe. King Louie also inspects its suppliers personally every year. They travel to Asia and Turkey, the site of their biggest supplier. The female owner has shown commitment to equal rights for women for many years. King Louie has been working this manufacturer for over 20 years. It does not stop there. Today, 10% of their clothing comes with GOTS certification. That is short for Global Organic Textile Standard. It means that based on organic fibre and production compliance, the clothing is fully sustainable. Interesting note, the King Louie dresses made of recycled polyester are manufactured from recycled PET bottles! See why we love King Louie! Shop their range on Global Free Style’s webstore now.
