Welcome and thank you for taking the time to get to know more.
Liquorice Clothing was founded in 2016, by me: Lyandra Gondo. I’ve been the one woman band behind the brand since then. It all began with selling chokers on eBay. From humble beginnings I started sewing summer skirts and once my confidence grew I began designing different styles of clothing and bags.
As I created my collections I found myself drawn most to African wax prints. One interesting requirement for good quality wax print is that the fabric is 100% cotton. This is when I started learning more about biodegradable fabrics, which means that the fabric can be broken down by bacteria and other living organisms in the ground. Cotton can breakdown in 5 months unlike plastic which takes around 450 years. Even when you wash plastic clothes small parts of plastic end up in the ocean from your washing machine.
From my research, I decided that I didn’t want to be like other brands pumping out clothing made of plastic. I dedicated my brand to creating eco friendly handmade pieces. So you can shop the plastic free collections today guilt free. Sustainable fashion made easy…
