Our experience has taught us to continually refine established wardrobe essentials with new prints, embellishments and details.

Always designed and fitted in-house by our devoted team, we hope you’ll love our creations and wear them time and time again. We are proud to create sustainable high quality clothing for all shapes and sizes so you can dress with confidence and style. We recognise our responsibility to the planet and only make our products with ethically approved manufacturers.

Our Values

As the business grew, The Loomba Group of Companies emerged,
encompassing fashion, property and philanthropy.

The Loomba Foundation was founded by Lord and Lady Loomba in memory of Lord Loomba’s
mother, Pushpa, who became a widow aged 37 with seven young children in a society which
shunned widows.

Since inception, The Loomba Group of Companies has donated over £3 million to the Loomba
Foundation.

In 2019 we listed our commitments to sustainable practices, including
reducing our carbon footprint, finding alternative materials for packaging,
dyes and yarns and reviewing our processes to increase our recycling.

In 2020 we launched Empower A Widow offering our customers a range of special
offers and free delivery when they donate to The Loomba Foundation through us.

In 2021 the founding family transferred majority ownership of the fashion business to its
employees to create a new generation of employee owners.
