LAASSO works with artisans and small producers in the European Union (EU) and Africa, who are aligned with our values of a slow response to fast fashion and minimising our environmental impact.

Our clothing production atelier in Portugal complies with stringent EU environmental regulations and EU labour standards. They hold certifications for:     
  • Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
  • Organic Content Standard (OCS) 
  • OEKO-TEX Standard 100 
  • Global Recycle Standard (GRS)
  • Climate Neutral
  • ISO 1400: 2015 Environmental Management 
  • ISO 9001: 2015 Quality management
All LAASSO fabrics are sourced in Europe, and mostly carry GOTS, OCS, GRS, Better Cotton Initiative, and/or OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certifications.
To eliminate overproduction, all of our items are either made to order or created in small batches.
