Transparency


LUKS as you see it

For us, transparency means being open about our business decisions. We want to explicitly show the values we believe in and visualize the production process in our company. We want to show what makes the final price of each product. We focus on open communication - so each time you choose Looks by Luks you can rest assured it is an informed, well-thought-out purchasing decision.




We want our clients to buy consciously, so we reveal what cost components sum up to the final price of our products. 

We decided to choose four of our most popular products to show what exactly you pay for by choosing our brand. We reveal the cost of production starting from the expenditure on fabrics and sewing, through fixed costs, taxes, up to our margin. 

In our case margin is the amount that remains after covering all costs and we spend it on investments (new projects, fabrics, prototypes, equipment, tested software), margin of our trading partners and salary of our owners. The margin varies depending on the product. Sometimes it can be higher, sometimes lower. On some products we earn more and on others - less, but we still keep them in our offer if they’re ecological or unique.

LUKS Values

We believe the origin of the products matter. We understand how mass consumption affects the environment. We want our products to reflect the values we live by. Each of our collections carries a message, in line with our beliefs - ecology, closeness to nature, self-development, social equality and freedom. We keep demanding more of ourselves, so in the future we’d offer products made solely of ecological materials, in the spirit of ethical fashion.

Certified fabrics and prints
All fabrics that we use for production are certified with at least OEKO-TEX or GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certificate.
Ecological packaging
​Individual orders are packed in cardboard boxes, and wholesale orders - mainly in reused boxes. Labels are made of recycled paper.
Less plastic
We minimize the use of plastic both in packaging and in our daily office lide. We care for the environment by segregating waste.
Unique designs
Our philosophy is to create unique products available in small quantities, in cooperation with young, talented artists, while addressing topics that are close to our hearts. We only release two collections per year, to avoid encouraging excessive consumption.
Local production
We sew mainly in a small workshop in Sopot and pay decent salaries to our seamstresses.


SEWING made-to-order


Before the order arrives at your doorstep it needs to go through several stages, starting with entering the ordered goods on the list to be handed over to a specific seamstress. Then it’s time to prepare the fabric, to cut out the form and, eventually, to sew the final product. It’s not the end yet though. When the sewn goods are delivered to our office we start completing the orders. Sometimes the products from one order are sewn by different hands, so then we wait until the last piece arrives, before we seal the package. Only then will we prepare the parcel and send it to an indicated address.

Trivia: have you known that around ¼ of the wasted industry’s resources each year comes from overproduction of clothes? Thanks to sewing made-to-order we minimize the risks associated with overstocking with products that won’t sell - this way we avoid littering our environment.


LUKS Initiatives


​Each of our collections carries a message and donates part of the profit to various types of foundations, related to the subject of a given collection. In the past we helped the Blue Butterfly association for women who battle ovarian cancer, the "Buy Responsibly" foundation, the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, The Ocean Cleanup that rids seas and oceans of plastic, and ”Kosmos for Girls”. Part of the profit from the The Roots collection supported the Greenpeace Poland campaign "Adopt a Bee" and the Liberté collection will be donated to the Open Mind foundation, which promotes the idea of "world without barriers", supporting local craftsmanship and contemporary design.
