(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Designer Tiffany Phipps reported a positive experience at the recent CurveNY show, where she showed the silk range from her newly-launched eco-friendly lingerie brand, titled T-Luxe. “I got a really positive response from everyone, and people said that the line’s green aspect is an added bonus.”
T-Luxe includes a soy/organic cotton range and an organic silk range, with styles wholesaling for $30 to $75 and retailing for $55 to $175. The silk range’s six styles include a soft bra, panty, tank top, blouse and nightie running in sizes SM and ML. Phipps expects to expand her size range based on feedback from buyers at Curve.
Phipps founded New York based-T-Luxe six months ago after noticing a lack of eco-friendly lingerie on the market. “There was a lot of organic loungewear and sleepwear on the market, but I didn’t see anyone doing eco-friendly, high-end lingerie. I have always been obsessed with lingerie and I live an eco-conscious lifestyle, so I decided to start T-Luxe to fill that void.”
And Phipps reported that it’s more—much more—than just the fabric that makes T-Luxe eco-friendly. The brand is manufactured in New York City, which Phipps says cuts down on its carbon footprint and allows her to maintain better control over green production practices, and all fabrics come from the United States and Canada. Additionally, everything from the vegetable-grade dyes to the natural shell buttons to the company’s business cards are eco-friendly, she reported.
T-Luxe products can currently be purchased through the company’s website and at the boutique Pretty Thing in Beverly Hills, CA. Phipps anticipates that high-end and environmentally-friendly boutiques from the CurveNY show will pick up the line. She described the line’s style as consisting of “timeless classic” styles that will appeal to 18 to 40-year-old women. All current pieces are solid-colored; however, she is investigating eco-friendly ways of making prints. “I have heard that laser-printing is more eco-friendly than print-making, so I am researching that right now,” she explained.
