2017 Ethical & Luxurious Holiday Gift Guide

The Holidays and Christmas are right around the corner - it's our favorite time of year. From decorating to baking, family gatherings and gift giving...

The perfect gift is hard to come across and shopping can be stressful, especially when you're ethically minded. We have compiled a list of our top 10 favorites this season, from other luxury, ethical brands, in almost every category. Whether you are looking for that one special something, or multiple gifts, we've got you covered.

Although we are usually talking about sustainability, zero waste and slow fashion, we also understand that we sometimes want to splurge and purchase something fun and luxurious. In doing so, we can also make smarter decisions and still shop ethically. Everyone enjoys pretty things, but let's make sure we are choosing pieces we love and want to cherish and keep for as long as we can.

Ethical is the new luxury. Handmade is the new luxury.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holiday! Xoxo

Organic Cotton As Ethical Cotton

Organic Cotton is often discussed as an eco-friendly fiber because it has a minimal impact when it comes to polluting earth's resources. Organic cotton is produced without the use of toxic pesticides, insecticides, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). For many, organic cotton could also be considered ethical cotton - due to the way it impacts the life of the farmer. In many ways, organic cotton is a better method for farmers to use than conventional methods.

One of the most obvious ways by which organic cotton positively impacts the life of a farmer is the absence of harmful insecticides and pesticides in organic cotton farming. This protects both the farmers' lives and the surrounding environment. (Cottoned On) In developing countries, there are up to 20,000 deaths each year caused by pesticide poisoning. Pesticide residue can be found in nearby lakes, rivers, and waterways, as well as foods, farm animals and breast milk. Each year, over 10,000 US farmers die from canc…

Flaunt What You’ve Got: A Girl’s Guide to Boudoir Photography

"Feeling sexy  is an empowering thing. It raises self-confidence, makes people feel desirable  and can really heat things up  in the bedroom."

Feeling sexy is an empowering thing. It raises self-confidence, makes people feel desirable and can really heat things up in the bedroom. Boudoir photography is a playful way to show off (most of) your goods, get sexy with some cute poses and wow your partner with a gift they’re sure to love.
Boudoir is French for a woman’s bedroom or private sitting room, where most photography sessions still take place. The intimate setting helps create romantic images that can be cheeky, sensual, or downright naughty. Boudoir photography is one of today’s hottest bridal trends, although it’s been around for a long time.


From late 19th-century erotic French postcards to boudoir art in the 1920s and curvy pinup-girls of the ‘40s and ‘50s, female sexuality has been the subject of photography since… well, since photography was invented. But now, boudoir has be…

Lingerie Care & Laundry Detergents

As Lola & August and Naturæ by LA work towards a more sustainable future, it is vital to educate our customers on proper lingerie care to prolong the use of your undergarments.
From proper laundry care to choosing the right laundry detergents, it is possible to reduce waste and exposure to harmful chemicals.
Lola & August Luxury Lingerie

Hand-sewn in Toronto, Canada from imported fabrics, our luxury lingerie line should last you quite a few years, depending on number of wears and how you care for your pieces.
Hand wash the lingerie in cold water with like colors using one of the listed detergents below. Ensure the detergent has been properly rinsed before hanging or laying flat to dry. We recommend hanging for silk or satin items to prevent ironing which will dull the silk and, of course, to save energy.

Made locally in Toronto, Canada by our team of talented seamstresses, the Naturæ by LA panties are made from 100% GOTS Certified Organic Co…
