Lotus Paradis is a brand that designs and produces luxury silk clothing. The collection includes clothes made of pure silk that are woven by hand. Each one is a demonstration of the expertise and dedication of the Cambodian seamstresses who make them. Each one is cut in elegant lines and has perfect finishing. They make any woman feel and look exquisite.
Every Lotus Paradis dress brings something fresh and new to the fashion world as a whole and to the woman who is looking for something unique. It is all about luxury and no effort or expense is spared to achieve this goal. They are made of pure, all-natural silk that comes from sustainable sources. Sticking with sustainable sources is in keeping with the objective of protecting the environment. With the best quality of silk, designers are able to create glamorous, original design outfits.
Lotus Paradis creations have clean, simple lines. This is to give them a timeless, classic look that works for all seasons and even for years. While the brand is best known for the silk dresses, the collections include equally exquisite formal blouses, formal dresses including those made for cocktails, tunic-style ones and even 50s designs that have a retro vibe. The collections come in a wide array of colours including subtle, neutral colours and bold, bright ones.
Apart from the designs, what makes Lotus Paradis collections unique is the silk they are made of. Cambodian silk is different for a number of different reasons. It is light and breathable. It is also strong, durable and anti-allergenic because it is a natural fabric. Additionally, it adapts to the prevailing conditions so clothes made out of it work for both warm and cold temperatures. Lotus Paradis also chooses to use Cambodian silk for its texture which is soft and smooth and that takes and holds dye very well.
There are different kinds of silk. They are taffeta, shantung, fine silk, chiffon and organza. Each one of these different types of silk has fibre that has different textures which is why they have different properties. Taffeta reflects light which gives it lovely moiré effects. It is very soft and is the type of that is used most for the collections.
Shantung is another type which has old-century charm. It is pure silk that is easy to use to create marvellous designs. It is the silk that is used to make the brand's popular ivory dress and trousers. The other type of silk which is fine silk or chiffon is a very light fabric. It is used to make tunics, scarves and stoles. If you are ever in doubt about whether an item is made of pure silk or not, you can verify by conducting a simple test. Simply burn a small bit and if it is genuine, it will have the smell of burning hair.
All the clothes in the brand's collections are made following Fair Trade practices. To ensure this, Lotus Paradis has implemented its own regulations that has strategies that respect and are committed to economic, social and environmental protection. The brand's commitment is to promote a culture that promotes and protects sustainable luxury fashion.
This includes promoting Cambodian silk and haut couture internationally. Weavers and seamstresses from this country work in well-equipped workshops that have a conducive work environment. Typically, expertise in this kind of work is passed on from generation to generation. Our workshops recognize and support this while giving the workers to earn money from their craft. Our efforts have been seen by The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) who have certified Lotus Paradis silk. The certification recognition is given to labels that are working towards equality at work and promoting the interests of artisans. We also have certification from Ecotex for the Dystar dye we use for dying the silk. Ecotex is global certification that is given for use of products that are non-toxic, do not contain heavy metals and are not harmful to health.
Lotus Paradis is the brainchild of Sophie Brooks. After just one trip to Cambodia, she was enthralled in the beautiful silk she saw being produced in this country. It inspired her to start the Lotus Paradis brand that could make use of the silk to create beautiful, glamorous luxury clothes. The rest as the say is history. The brand continues to match on to its own beat with new, magnificent collections.
