Fair trade and eco-friendly closing brand Passion Lilie was founder by socially conscious entrepreneur and designer Katie Schmidt. Based in New Orleans, USA the company produces a stylish ethical clothing range for women and more recently men which features streamline silhouettes in a retro and vintage style. Katie creates all the designs for Passion Lilie and works with artisan groups based across several regions in India who produce the clothing using ancient Indian artisanal techniques. Katie was inspired to start the company after a visit to India during which she witnessed how one woman’s ability to provide for her family uplifted an entire community.
Through eco-friendly practices Passion Lilie is committed to preserving the environment through use of natural dyes along with energy, waste and water reduction in the production process. Fabrics are hand washed in local waterways and dried in the sun with leftover scraps used for accessories or handicrafts. Thanks to a dedicated team in India, Passion Lilie have been able to keep alive their ancient artisanal dyeing and weaving traditions, keeping a balance of the old and new by staying up to date with the best apparel and fabric manufacturing techniques to bring you the highest quality of products. By purchasing Passion Lilie fair trade garments, you are helping to reverse the cycle of poverty and to improve the world you live in.
“My mission in life is to improve the world I live in, and because of my love for design, I have chosen to do this through fashion” – Katie Schmidt
