Our Ethics

Here at Lost Little One we refer to our products as being ‘ethically made’. 

But what does ethically made mean to us?

We believe in a path less travelled and pride ourselves on our conscious sourcing and manufacturing for all of our collections.

Lost Little One- Made in Morocco

We source our leather ethically from a local tannery in Marrakech, Morocco - a vibrant city that feels like Dom’s second home. We work hand in hand with leather tanners and artisans who are still using the same ancient methods practised for over 800 years! The locals are highly skilled workers dedicated to their craft - producing products that are chemical free, vegetable dyed and of the highest quality. We’re super proud to be working with them, supporting the community and keeping the tradition alive in a small way.

Ethical to us means that our small business helps other small businesses, too. We choose to work with small operations nestled deep in the Marrakech Medina so we’re certain every relationship we make is directly benefiting local Moroccan people.

Bespoke Collection - Made in Melbourne

Our Melbourne Collection embodies all the same values, working with independent Australian small businesses to turn our visions into reality. The Melbourne Collection is slow fashion in motion - we use locally sourced vegetable-tanned kangaroo leather to handcraft all of our bespoke designs. Each piece is made to order in the Melbourne workshop: cut, stitched and personalised by hand by our leather artisan, using the traditional techniques she learnt in Morocco!

These one of a kind pieces are created using kangaroo leather from South Australia. Our leather is batch dyed on demand and the tannery uses eco-tech processes - sustainable practices including the recycling of waste water, vegetable tanning and consistently reducing heating and power emissions each year.
