Oûcollie has its own small studio at home, where most of the work happens. What can be done handmade is made there, for the rest we carefully select and work exclusively with manufacturers who operate their business with respect for the planet and its inhabitants.
Oûcollie endeavours to limit carbon footprints by sourcing high quality fabrics and trims locally in the same region where our studio is based, or within Europe.
Oûcollie does not mass-produce. Our collars are of the highest quality, made to last, to be worn season after season, and to be passed down and reused.
Oûcollie’s mission is to encourage everyone, to think, act and choose positively while finding ideas to help us create less wastage and reduce our environmental impact. Oûcollie believes that you can achieve a great, unique style without buying mass clothes for every occasion, we think you just need to have a pair of favorite clothes and depending on the occasion or go-out, just combine with a collar to achieve a dream look.
Garments with high quality and long-lasting design are essential for building a sustainable wardrobe. Sooner or later when the little ones outgrow their clothes, a good piece of garment is always wanted by someone else.
REPAIR AND REWEAR
Give your garment a second chance by covering stubborn stains or holes with leftover fabric or patches. When it’s time to say goodbye – recycle, resell or donate your garments to an organization.
WASH WITH CARE
For many garments, the laundry bag is not the place to be. Hang your clothes on a rack and let the air do its magic. Remove smaller stains with natural basics from your kitchen, such as white vinegar, baking soda, and lemon, and only wash your garments when needed
Break a pattern and set the standard for future generations. Ask brands about their sustainability work and support the frontrunners.
