The Intention Of L.E.A.F
Behind the scarf
L.E.A.F’s intention as a brand is to create collections filled with meaning, beauty, depth and substance that are made to the highest quality using both ethical and sustainable methods. Designing each scarf from a mindful centered place is a key element of L.E.A.F, believing that what is created from this place allows the intended message to translate into each design in its purest form. Our aim as a brand is to connect emotionally with our customers and take them on the journey which lead to the creation of their scarf.
Choosing to use the latest technology in digital printing allows us to produce the highest quality of color and finish while lowering our impact on the environment compared to other traditional silk printing methods. Our aim as a brand is to continue to grow in sustainability and we are constantly researching new technology that can allow us achieve the highest quality of colour and finish while continuing to lower our impact on the environment. Designing our scarves in Ireland and manufacturing them in the UK ensures each scarf is ethically made. A core fundamental belief of L.E.A.F is that all workers should be cared for and treated with respect. Having transparency in our brand is of the up most importance to us here at L.E.A.F and we aim to constantly work extremely close with our manufacturers in the UK to ensure those core value of ours is being met.
