Natural Materials, Craftsmanship, Fair trade, Empowerment

At Isabelle LaRue, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. From the inception of our designs to the final consumer experience, every step in our process is carefully considered to ensure we are not only creating beautiful, fashionable products but also contributing positively to our planet and its people.

We are always striving to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our Approach

At Isabelle LaRue, we believe in the power of beauty, craftsmanship, and responsible production. Our mission is to create high-end resort and swimwear that not only embodies elegance and style but also respects our planet and its people.

Materials and Product

We are committed to using durable, natural fibers and crafting timeless designs. Our focus is on sourcing eco-friendly materials that minimize environmental impact while ensuring the longevity of our fashion items. We believe in reducing waste and promoting a sustainable consumption model.

Supply Chain and Manufacturing

Our dedication to responsible production is at the heart of our operations. We rigorously monitor our partner factories to ensure compliance with the best industry practices and international standards. Our relationships with suppliers are built on a foundation of ethics and professionalism, ensuring that every piece we create is made with respect for both the workers and the environment.


Sustainability is a key driver in our production processes. We actively seek the most energy-efficient and water-efficient methods available, continually striving to reduce our environmental footprint. From reducing emissions to minimizing waste, every step we take is aimed at protecting our planet for future generations.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Isabelle LaRue is more than just a fashion brand; we are a community committed to making a positive impact. Our corporate social responsibility efforts extend to diversity and inclusion, community engagement, and partnerships with NGOs and other organizations that share our vision for a sustainable future.

Transparency and Governance

We believe in the importance of transparency in our sustainability journey. Our governance structure ensures that our sustainability efforts are aligned with global initiatives and standards. We are committed to being open about our progress and challenges, as we continuously work towards a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry.

Empowering Artisans

Our handbags are a testament to the skill, dedication, and artistry of rural women artisans in Bengal, India. These incredible women, skilled in the traditional craft of hand-weaving, create our vegan, handmade jute bags. This initiative not only supports their livelihoods but also empowers them to provide for their families, offering a sustainable solution to break the cycle of poverty.

Reviving the Jute Industry

In partnership with the non-profit organization Miranda, we are committed to reviving the once-thriving jute industry in India. This collaboration stands by the female artisans, bringing their work to the fashion streets of America. Our handbags are not just accessories; they are a bridge connecting the talents of these women with the global market, ensuring their craft receives the recognition and value it deserves.

Sustainable Practices

Jute is known for its environmental benefits, including generating more oxygen than any other crop in India. Each Isabelle LaRue handbag is handwoven and hand-sewn from the finest natural jute material, making your choice not just stylish but eco-friendly. We are actively implementing policies and processes to ensure that our operations — from design to logistics — reflect our commitment to being a responsible fashion business.

A Fashion Statement with Impact

Our handbags have graced the runways of New York Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week, and Art Basel. They've been featured in top publications and hailed as the "Louis Vuitton of Jute" at the Independent Handbag Awards Show in New York City. When you purchase an Isabelle LaRue handbag, you're not just acquiring a fashion statement; you're supporting a noble cause.
