Words By Shannon Rice

Gone are the days when ‘sustainable’ meant boring, basic pieces. Luxury and sustainability are finally intersecting, and they are doing so in a beautiful way. Swedish designer, Christina Ellinor Lindstrom is making waves in the lingerie space with her delicately crafted pieces, and a bigger mission in mind. Her desire? To create luxurious and comfortable pieces with sustainable materials.

Observing other designers who use such materials for outerwear, Christina thought, why not use these materials for lingerie? Her pieces are made from bamboo silk, regenerated nylon fiber, and ethically sourced lace. Her belief is to deliver quality over quantity, which is rarely the case in the undergarment industry where one often buys their pants as multipacks. 

When shopping at Christina Leonor, buyers are giving back to communities in need, with 5% of all purchases made donated to charity. Right now, she is supporting an incredible NGO called Women for Women International that creates job opportunities for women in conflicted parts of the world. 

Creating only a few styles with a meticulous selection of fabrics, her lingerie range is elegant and timeless. Christina’s pieces are inspired by her native country’s minimalist aesthetics but produced with renowned Italian quality, with all her garments crafted in a small factory in Veneto to the north of Italy. Supporting small businesses and local artisans is integral to Christina Leonor delivering high quality products with sustainability in mind.
