A small price increace...

A small price increace...
If you've been following my journey for some time you will know that Luludu came together just over two years ago, when I traveled to Cambodia with a plan of passing on the skill of making these shoes. It was my goal to create fair, enjoyable employment to disadvantaged and marginalised Cambodian women. After many hurdles, I came in to contact with tonlé, and subsequently Mel Eng, Vanna and Srey Pov who have now mastered the production of these crochet beauties.

As I decided to sell these shoes primarily through my website, it meant I could cut out all the middle men and keep the mark up and sale price extremely low compared to most other products in stores, but it can also means less turnover and less growth by not having the same amount of profit or exposure that other brands have. Since 2014 many other factors have also changed in Cambodia such as living costs, wages and the costs of materials, plus the US to Aussie exchange rate has changed dramatically from what it once was.

I have tried my best to absorb these rising costs as long as I can, but to be able to continue to make this business worthwhile, to enable it to grow and to continue to support ethical fashion, I have come to a point where the only option is to increase the price by a small amount..

So from October 17, 2016 the price will be slightly increased to $129 per pair

Until this date you can still purchase these shoes at $120 for both shoes that are currently in stock and pre-orders.

I am also in the process of changing my website over to a platform that supports 'afterpay', meaning you will be able to easily purchase these shoes and pay them off over 4 simple instalments. I hope to have this up and running in the coming months!

Ethical fashion is not always the cheapest option, but it is always the right option. I would never be okay profiting off any beings suffering - human or animal. So I will continue to try my best to keep the price as low as I can so as many women as possible can enjoy these shoes that are full of kindness, comfort and connection.
