wear and care, our sustainable way
LEMON Garments was founded in 2019 in Amsterdam and since then we are committed to creating an effortless, timeless style which is as comfortable and easy to wear as possible. LEMON says no to fast fashion, ridiculous amounts of waste, pollution and exploitation of workers. The goal of LEMON is to contribute to a more ethical and eco-friendly world. by sourcing and producing with high ethical standards and offering a timeless wardrobe that lasts.
Crafted, sustainably grown fibers material with GOTS certification
LEMON is committed to selling high quality, natural products that are kind to the environment in order to minimize the negative impact on the planet. Carefully sourced organic materials are a key factor in our sustainable solution.
All our cotton fabrics are GOTS certified. "The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain." This ensures that all cotton fibres are checked and controlled to meet high standards.
We work closely with our fabric distributor to have a better insight in the sustainability of the fibre and ensure excellent quality.
Tencel lyocell and recycled material
We are in love with Tencel lyocell fabric and integrate it in our collection as much as possible. Lyocell is cellulose fibre produced from sustainably sourced wood. The production of the fibre requires significantly less energy and water than the production of cotton. As a naturally derived fibre, Tencel is also biodegradable. It is dyed with conventional chemicals, however it uses a lot less dye than for example cotton. In addition it is more breathable fabric than cotton and it has antibacterial properties. On top of all this, our new favourite material is super soft and flowy and will last you a long way.
Wherever we can, we work with recycled material and are very happy to have found recycled polyester yarn with which all LEMON Garments are sewn.
Another amazing innovation we are working with is Snaply, a vegan leather that is actually paper. But it can be washed like fabrics, gives a surprisingly soft and natural look and has a beautiful "leather-optic".
Fair and traceable production line and long lasting quality
We work closely with our manufacturers to ensure all garments are produced under high ethical standards. We are committed to ensure that within our entire supply chain all workers work under fair conditions and are paid a living wage.
The collection are handmade in Amsterdam in our studio in Amsterdam. To avoid overproduction, we work with a very limited stock system and most garments are made upon order.
