Story Of OE
BECAUSE BEING SUSTAINABLE MATTERS
Small companies are here to make big impact.
Handmade with love
Every item is handmade from scratch in very limited quantities. The process starts with sourcing quality fabrics, designing and testing patterns, cutting, sewing, pressing, checking for loose threads and finally packaging. It takes approximately 6-8 hours for a dress to be made from start to finish. Some take up to 12 hours to make. Every piece is truly special and unique.
Reducing waste and eco-footprint. OctoberEighteen uses mainly overstock (also known as deadstock) fabrics, from various designer fashion houses and factories, to create clothing based on the nature of the fabric itself. All fabrics used for production are sourced according to usage and cut very cautiously to prevent fabric waste.
One at a time
Keeping a direct and realistic approach. OctoberEighteen only releases one product at a time when it is complete, there’s no mass production. Starting with a small quantity of each product, and only making more based on order demand and customer feedback, this means less waste and more exclusive. So, no one at the party will be wearing the same outfit as you!
Plastic free packaging
We are actively striving for a reduction of the environmental impact of our products. As part of our packaging policy, OctoberEighteen uses recycled paper and biodegradable packaging. We encourage you to reuse our packaging materials as many times as you can, because if everyone uses them at least twice, we'll reduce the waste on this planet by 50%.
HERE AT OCTOBEREIGHTEEN,
90% of fabrics used are upcycled.
Soft feeling on skin, cotton is praised for its comfortableness, versatility and durability. Good absorbency and conducts heat well.
Known as the world’s most luxurious natural fabric, silk is soft, elegant with a smooth touch and shimmering look.
And Rayon, often used as a substitute for silk. Originating from natural resources, viscose rayon is very light and very airy, making it a cool fabric for stylish summer wear.
Made from natural fibers, Linen is absorbent, cool, smooth and durable. It is machine-washable, but it needs regular ironing, as it creases easily.
Polyester is highly durable, wrinkle resistant and very easy to care for. Only deadstock and recycled polyester will be used for production. We don't need to make more, we can reuse the ones that are already here.
Generally known for its lustrous finish and beautiful drape. Satin is more than just a soft, shiny fabric often used for fancy dresses. This luxurious fabric is glossy, elegant and slippery on one side and matte on the other.
