Manufacturers

King Louie only wants to work with manufacturers who guarantee good labor conditions for their employees. All our clothing is produced in Turkey and China.

Sustainable collaborations


We have consciously chosen to limit our production to two countries of production: China and Turkey. We maintain good contacts with our manufacturers in China (30%) and Turkey (70%) and have worked with our main supplier for over 20 years. Of course, we visit our supplier ourselves every season. King Louie has considerable influence (buying at least 10% of the production capacity) on 72% of its suppliers volume. And in the past financial year 63% of our purchase volume came from factories that we had worked with for over 5 years.

Our main supplier: Suteks

Our main supplier Suteks, is from Turkey. It is an inspiring company, whose owner Mrs. Mur Ger is highly committed to equal women’s rights in the world. The company has a number of awards to its name, including ‘Best Social Gender Equality in Work Life 2012’. In 2013 their company was included in the ‘Honorary List by United Nations Women Empowerment Principles (UN WEP)’ and in 2016 Mrs. Nur Ger was appointed Global Business Advocate of the UN WEPs.
