How you benefit:
We want to encourage ethical fashion choices and reward you for helping us push this very important movement so shop on-demand at 20% off.
How we benefit:
It helps us to know what to release every season so we can do more of wha you love and less of you don’t!
How we all benefit:
On-demand (or shopping pre-orders) means only producing what is necessary - this helps us significantly reduce waste and overproduction, as well as preserving resources and protecting our planet.
Fast fashion compared to slow fashion, produces more CO2 than aviation and shipping combined
6.4L of water is needed to produce 1 linen top vs 26L of water for cotton
100% of our linen garments do not release any microplastic to the ocean vs half a million tones released per year from synthetic fibers
What does pre-order/on-demand mean?
On-demand production means we don’t produce any more or any less than what is ordered.
This means that every time we launch a new style or restock items that are in high demand, we wait for new orders to come in to begin producing.
This is the most sustainable way of shopping because it creates 0% excess products.
This is why we give you up to 20% off pre-order styles in order to encourage on-demand shopping.
Why do you offer pre-orders/on-demand on some items and others not?
There are two reasons why we offer this.
(1) Some of our styles are in extremely high demand or some new product launches are anticipated to sell out very quickly so by offering pre-orders during certain periods, gives everyone a chance to order our most sought after styles and guarantees the purchase so you don’t miss out!
(2) We also understand that it’s nice to be able to order an item and receive it within days - that’s why we like to keep products stocked but in limited numbers in order to minimize overproduction.
How does pre-order/on-demand work?
Not all items are eligible for pre-order so the way you will know if the item you want to purchase is accepting pre-orders is if the 'ADD TO CART' button has been replaced by a 'PRE-ORDER' button.
Here’s how to place a pre-order:
Step 1: Purchase your pre-order on [please take note of the expected delivery time and our return policy before placing an order]
Step 2: Our team and partners begin preparing the order
Step 3: Once we have put the finishing touches on your order and items are shipped to our warehouse
Step 4: Our team packs your pre-order and dispatches out upon the next available ship-out date
How long do I wait to receive my pre-order?
You can check estimated shipping times on every individual product page.
Please bear in mind that since these products are mad-to-order, they are produced from scratch to avoid waste and overproduction hence why expected delivery time, on average, ranges from 3-4 weeks.
Other factors that may affect delivery timeline are logistical delays in the supply chain which is something we cannot control.
My order contains a combination of pre-order and in-stock items. When will they be shipped?
If your order contains a combination of both pre-order and in-stock items or pre-order items with different shipping dates[combined orders],we send all itemstogetheronce they're ready. In order words, we will send out your full order once the pre-order item with the latest expected shipping date, is complete.
Please remember that our company’s mission is built on sustainability and reducing our logistical output plays a significant role in reducing our carbon footprint.
Where are you based?
LUXMII is a global brand.
Our founder is Australian and all of our designs are created in both Australia and Europe. Our in-house team is split between Australia, Portugal and Greece so as to keep a close connection to our suppliers, partners and producers.
At current, our dispatch warehouse is located in Australia however we will be expanding into Europe in order to meet growing demand from other countries.
How is pre-order/on-demand sustainable?
On-demand, if not, is the most sustainable production method out there because instead of making clothes en masse, we wait for orders to come in so we can produce
exactly the amount that is asked for.
This way we don’t have any leftover stock or fabric - most brands burn this or take it to landfills, a massive threat to our ecosystem.
