Ethical Focus & Policy
Being an avid environmentalist, Lidia strives to undress ethical issues in Fashion, promoting handcrafted, eco-sustainable collections and awareness.
To craft her product Lidia went to the place she remembered from her childhood, Skopje’s old town. To her surprise what used to be craftsman central, was now replaced by craftsman trading Chinese products.
In collaboration with the Macedonian government, Lidia founded a handcrafting studio to help revive the dying craftsmanship in her native country thus Studio L&E opened its doors in 2014.
It now employs experienced craftsman and holds apprenticeship programmes, in order to nurture young local talent.
All items handcrafted in the studio are numbered, signed and dated by the craftsmen themselves, humanising the process and making the production completely traceable. The studio is also energy efficient and environmentally friendly to a very high standard.
L&E holds apprenticeship programmes, with backing from the Government which are training the next generation as they scale their production to meet a growing demand. L&E also collaborates with suppliers to keep on innovating in the sector of non-animal, recycled, eco-friendly materials.
