why go circular?

It is increasingly clear that the linear model of production → consumption → disposal is unsustainable. With the increase of population and wealth, we reach worrying levels of production, consumption and waste. This has put significant pressure on our natural ecosystems, our biodiversity and our future. The residues of this linear approach are visible in our oceans, soils, cities and communities. Aware of the world’s signals, LA is committed to change. We know we are not perfect, but every season we are trying to reduce our dependence on natural resources and substitutes for synthetic products. We favor artificial fibers, recycled and biodegradable products.

LA favors raw materials with a positive impact: 85% of our materials are  plant based, animal based or made with artificial fibers that come from trees. More than 50% of our products are certified by autonomous entities.

our impact

Companies are the engines of modern societies. They create value for society, bring prosperity and innovation and develop solutions to concrete problems. It is from this perspective that we develop corporate social responsibility initiatives and invest in actions to increase our company’s eco-efficiency and sustainable practices.
 
We believe that our actions must be reflected in concrete impacts in order to measure and annually align new strategies to combat emissions, waste and social impact.

CERTIFICATIONS

With regard to this issue, we have the GOTS, OCS, GRS, BCI and OEKO-TEX
certifications, allowing us to serve our customers with sustainable and socially
responsible items, guaranteeing transparency and traceability throughout the
production chain.

Such certifications allow us to work in accordance with the highest quality standards, respecting quality and environmental policies, within the scope of the management system, design and development and production of clothing articles.

The use of organic raw materials, such as organic cotton and other yarns of sustainable origin, are increasingly present in more fabrics in our collections, and this is our choice, but above all a commitment to our planet.
