The majority of Lasalina's value chain is located in Germany. 70% of the raw materials, on the other hand, are sourced in Portugal and Netherlands. The other 30% are sourced in Germany.
The brand uses almost exclusively natural yarns for its products. Lasalina also sources discarded fabrics, for example from the Turkish market in Berlin or from overproduction or misproduction by other companies. The dead stock is also used for the creation of prototypes. Through these upcycling processes, the brand avoids wasting materials and creates unique designs.
The production is based in Berlin, Germany as well as the packaging and logistics activity. Regarding packaging, Lasalina uses recycled and compostable materials and reuses the packaging so that it is not just used once.
The brand has visited its manufacturers and packaging suppliers to review the working conditions of workers at its suppliers.
