The perfect combination for traveling – our set “Mon Ami”
We all like to be surrounded by our four-legged friends.
Our bag is made from recycled cotton in Augsburg at manomama. This eco-social textile company is unique in Germany. Here, people find work who have few opportunities in the traditional labour market. The long-term unemployed, older people, migrants, single parents and people with disabilities are given a professional home. These are very special people who put a lot of love into every manual step.
At manomama, these employees are given permanent employment contracts, with hourly wages well above the minimum wage and in work models that take their personal life situations into account.
At the same time, sustainability is a matter of course – just as it is for us at LILA LOVES IT. We also place the highest value on transparency, fairness and sustainability. Only textiles that do not contain harmful chemicals are processed.
So now these beautiful bags for all animal lovers are made 50 kilometres away from us in beautiful Augsburg. A textile city with a centuries-old tradition. By the way, Augsburg has the oldest social settlement in the world. Since 1521 the special spirit of the “social market economy” lives in this city.
The material of our bag is recycled cotton. In order to recycle the resulting remnants of GOTS-certified organic cotton (GOTS = Global Organic Textile Standard) in a sensible way, they are re-fibred, processed and spun again.
The production of recycled cotton is complex and expensive, but saves resources and water. It takes about 10,000 litres of water to produce one kilo of cotton.
This transparent organic cotton recycling cycle by manomama is unique worldwide and was awarded the B.A.U.M. Environmental Prize (Bundesdeutscher Arbeitskreis für Umweltbewusstes Management e. V.) in 2016.
Our high-quality LILA BEAUTY BAG contains tasty DUCK MEAT GOODIES as well as our LAVETTES washing gloves, for happy and clean four-legged friends.
