The core principles and values of the brand, meant that from the outset, Lotus Maternity's objective was to manufacture solely here in the UK and of the upmost importance. They are proud of the UK’s strong ethical values where employees are treated with care, respect and work to appropriate hours in authorised factory settings. This encourages fabrication of products to the highest standards in a competitive global market. Lotus Maternity are a British company and are therefore proud of British heritage. They are passionate about supporting and reviving the British textiles industry, which has seen a lot of its production move abroad in the last three decades. However, the UK still excels in making high quality, yet low volume products to a gold standard, complementing their niche market. They are also keen to support local, indpendent businesses within the textile trade that offer a plethora of knowledge and expertise through their seamstresses, with many having spent their entire careers in the industry. They explored various options within the East Midlands and selected an exceptional CMT factory in Nottingham. One of their key drivers was to select a local manufacturer, so that they were heavily involved in the entire manufacturing process; from the initial designs to the final product. They work very closely with the ladies and gentleman in the factory and regard it as a second home, whereby smiles and laughter are forever in abundance.
Lotus Maternity fabrics are sourced in Nottingham and Leicestershire. They will continue to source and buy fabric locally and always try to use sustainable cloth to protect the environment. They pride themselves on being an eco-friendly company and use no plastic in their packaging. Their garments are gift wrapped with beautiful biodegradable wrapping paper, acid free tissue paper and their postal paper is 100% recycled too. Finally, it brings Lotus Maternity great joy to be flying the flag for British manufacturing and they hope their customers support them through purchasing their products.
