Luke Azzopardi, the atelier’s creative director, is very vocal about the mass environmental degradation of the Maltese islands and the Mediterranean Sea. The atelier uses only the highest quality fabrics in its collections and bespoke commissions, and keeps away from polyester, nylon, acrylic, and other synthetic fibres, all of which have been proven to be heavy contributors of marine pollution through the bioaccumulation of microplastics. Our products also make use of plastic-free lining and packaging, and function solely on the premise that as a luxury product, the Luke Azzopardi garment is intended to be passed down from generation to generation, never to be thrown away.
