Building our factory

Building our factory

 

So, we built ourselves a factory. In London. And it’s probably the most pink and fun a factory has ever been.

 
 
Making lingerie and underwear in London sustainably
 
 

Why didn’t we work with a factory like other brands do? Well, working with manufacturers is tricky business. Factories have minimum order quantities. At Lara, we have 11 styles of garments, 5 colours and 30 bra sizes. At a factory, we would be required to make a minimum of 20 of each of these variations. That would be really expensive, create a lot of stock and put someone else in charge of actually making our garments.

By starting our own factory, we have complete control over sustainable practices, reducing stock waste and making products to the highest possible standard. With Lara Intimates, all bras are made in London, in our factory, with sustainable and ethical practices.

That’s enough about the what’s and why’s. Here’s how we built our factory, all the best DIY moments and some seriously impressive before and after pictures.

 
 

That's it! Now we have a space we love right here in London. It's time to get started making you underwear. K, bye.
