Kia ora, fellow lover of luxury leather
Entrepreneurship and fashion created the LOOOPE brand, Dave, and Regine, who started LOOOPE, are working hard to ensure nothing is overlooked for stylish business professionals.
Dave spent his childhood in India and Regine’s in the Philippines. They have seen what can go wrong with low-cost country sourcing, hence giving them a strong sense of responsibility to give back and inspire communities – especially those in need and who have less. This is achieved by ensuring their decisions are kind, to themselves, their team, their customers, and the planet. This is what they have to say…
All leather is not equal. You may be familiar with the label “genuine leather”, which is a generic term and could also represent the lowest quality of leather. “Top grain” or “full grain” is the best leather available. It is made from the topmost layer of the skin, making it stronger, more durable, and flexible than any other type of leather. This is what LOOOPE products are made from – you will notice the difference in the look, feel and even smell. The natural characteristics of leather develop a patina that makes our bags, luggage, and accessories more beautiful over time.
Our priority is to make sure that our customers feel proud and happy from the product and the service we provide, not to mention the good causes you support when shopping with us. Our goal is to bring style and function together so you can be confident and efficient at the same time.
All our leather is a by-product of the meat industry, which would otherwise go to landfill waste. This way, we are playing a part in the circular economy. We do not use leather from animals raised and killed for leather.
We are constantly working on making our materials and processes to keep up with the best practices in the industry. 80% of our packaging is biodegradable and recyclable, and we are working towards zero landfill waste.
We only do what makes us proud – inside and out, as individuals and as a team. Everything we do, we do for the greater good and big or small, we do everything with passion for excellence.
Every time you make a LOOOPE purchase, you are supporting a New Zealand charity. LOOOPE have chosen the following three charities because they help struggling New Zealand families. Parents struggling to raise their children, children who don’t have the optimal environment to develop, spouse and partners strengthening their relationships, and the sick and elderly who need care. This is generational giving – a circle of life, adding another layer to LOOOPE.
Parenting Place is inspiring, encouraging and supporting relationships from the time your little one is born, until they raise tamariki of their own. A range of programmes, courses, camps and resources tailored for whanau.
Family Life is committed to bringing help and hope to Kiwi marriages and families. Their events, workshops and resources are designed to inspire and equip couples to build the type of marriage that will last a lifetime.
Hospice New Zealand place equal importance on the physical, spiritual, cultural, emotional, and social well-being of a person living with a life limiting condition. Their services are also for the family and whanau both before and after their loved one has passed.
We are so excited to share our love of LOOOPE products that every LOOOPE order in New Zealand receives free shipping. That’s right, free shipping and no minimum spend so that you can have that gorgeous smell of real leather.
For our New Zealand customers, we also offer complementary gift wrapping, and as mentioned above, we are only 20% away from all of our packaging being biodegradable and recyclable. This is counting towards our goal of zero landfill waste.
We believe you will love our products as much as we do. Once you have purchased a LOOOPE product, join our VIP membership to receive exclusive offers and savings.
Much love, Dave and Regine.
