Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin has launched a sustainable loungewear label, Lesjour (pronounced leisure). 

Tonkin founded the Los Angeles-based label at the beginning of quarantine when she was searching for a sustainable and comfortable 'work from home' uniform.

"'Work-from-home' has created a paradigm shift in the way women think about getting dressed," she said. 

"In 2020, women want their closets to be filled with multi-functional, high-performance clothing that works hard for us - as hard as we work to afford and enjoy it," she said. 

Lesjour was founded with a focus on a small carbon footprint and achieves this aim through the use of an LA-based ethical manufacturer which is less than 8kms from the Lesjour studio. 

Additionally, each piece in the collection is made from 'Ecovero' material - a knitted, natural and renewable viscose made from wood pulp, produced in LA. 

Each tree used to create the material is replanted following regenerative farming practices, and the hand-made manufacturing processes results in water-saving and lower energy consumption. 

None of the garments come with a hang tag, to reduce unnecessary branding and packaging, and orders are packed and shipped in biodegradable, reusable gifting mailers. 

The six-piece collection features four tops and two pants, with all items priced at $198. 

It is available on the Lesjour website exclusively.
