British brand L.F.Markey is a collection of modern, feminine women’s and baby clothing, inspired by workwear and utility clothing. L.F.Markey is renowned for its contemporary variations of workwear staple pieces and core selection of denim pieces, including signature boilersuits, chore coats, dungarees, work pants, and jeans. Their signature bold and bright fabrics, relaxed shapes and boilersuits have been adapted for their first collection of clothing for babies and toddlers up to age 4 years. We are honoured to partner with this fabulous British brand for their debut kids collection.
Namesake and ex-Burberry designer Louise Markey graduated from the Masters course at Central Saint Martins. Prompted by her passion for traditional bleus de travail and artist’s smocks, L.F.Markey was born.
L.F.Markey is committed to make clothes which are made in a safe, ethical environment where working conditions are fair, using sustainable practices and ethical manufacturing. Innovative cuts, bold colours and fine fabrics are produced ethically and encourage slow, sustainable fashion. L.F.Markey have boutique-sized factories in China which are meticulously and consistently monitored. These factories have signed on to L.F.Markey's internal ethical and safety compliance documents and are supported, managed and inspected with frequent audits to meet all requirements, including worker safety, gender equality and payment of a living wage.
With a conscious decision to source sustainable fabrics, L.F.Markey use industry standard textiles dyes which undergo rigorous testing before being used in the market, and are exploring using plant-based dyes for future collections. To date, 65% of cotton is organic, and all wool yarn for knitted products is sourced exclusively from suppliers who adhere to the Responsible Wool Standard. L.F.Markey are in the process of moving all of their products into Global Organic Textile Standard certified organic textiles and hope to have achieved this by 2022.
