09 Jan Sustainable Fashion Directory Interview with Lupe’s Company Director
The Sustainable Fashion Directory is an online directory designed for consumers and lovers of fashion who really want to do the right thing. The creator wanted to shop more responsibly, to buy clothing that wouldn’t hurt the environment or her fellow human beings, but she didn’t know where to start. Her goal is to provide resources so people can shop responsibly, without spending all their time doing research. This Directory holds the information for companies around the World that produce or sell ethical and sustainable products.
We are proud to announce that Lupe have been listed as one of their recommend suppliers for 2016 alongside their directory of high quality suppliers with impeccable eco-credentials.
The following is an interview with LUPE’s Company Directory, Tansy Baigent from December 2016.
“Sustainable jewelry entrepreneur, Tansy Baigent, answered our questions about Lupe, the company she started with Dolly James. They sell pre-loved diamond and precious gemstone pieces; their sustainable diamond jewelry is stunning!”
How long have you been in business?
How did you come up with the name of your company?
We wanted something succinct and memorable but it had to be something with meaning. So armed with lots of cups of tea and a piece of paper we let our minds work some magic. And, after a fair length of time, in the name LUPE we found everything we had wanted.
Our business is based on sustainability, a closed-loop model, and re/up-cycling and thus this idea of a circle, a ‘loop’, was what we settled on, we simply played around with the spelling. Another dimension to the name is that a ‘loupe’ (pronounced like ‘loop’) is a magnifying glass used by jewellers (something both Dolly and I utilise to great lengths).”
