We take things slow.
Our collection is curated with consideration for the environment, the condition of the workers in the supply chain and the future of the piece once it reaches your wardrobe.
We invest in people, not factories.
Our makers work from their own Sunshine Coast studios, in their own time and paid Australian wages.
Our jewellery is handmade by Oddish founder Carmen in her home studio on the Sunshine Coast. She is paid with the occasional coffee to put some perk in her step.
We like to keeps things tight-knit.
We work closely with our makers to produce our pieces in small batches, which means less impact on the environment through large-scale production and large-scale waste.
Fibre to Fabric
We partner with suppliers who have the same ethos at their core – sustainability, minimal environmental impact and fair working conditions throughout their supply chain.
Our garments are made with Hemp, Tencel™ (Lenzing Lyocell), Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Organic Cotton or Linen, with 100% Organic Cotton thread for all our seams.
Our flax (linen fibres) is sourced from France and Belgium and sent to China to be milled. Our hemp and organic cotton fabric is grown and manufactured in the Henan, Shanxi, Gansu and Heilongjiang provinces of China. Some of the organic cotton in our blended fabric originated in Turkey and India. Read more about our materials here.
Earth Friendly Dyes
Less impact on the earth and your blood stream.
Our fabrics meet the Oeko-tex® Standard 100 which checks for the presence of hazardous chemicals in the dyed fabric, such as carcinogens, azo dyes and other chemical limits in accordance to the European REACH standards.
There’s a minute amount of dye and energy required to achieve rich, vibrant colours in comparison to natural and standard dyes which often require toxic mordants. Best of all, any dye that is washed out in the manufacturing process is easily broken down into harmless molecules by microbes in waste water treatment plants and/or soil.
Our care labels are printed on 100% recycled satin and certified to the highest OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 which means they are safe for even the most sensitive skin.
Post-consumer waste is another person's treasure.
All of our printed materials have been created with the environment in mind. Right down to our postcards and business cards which have been printed on paper made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste with vegetable based inks. Plus, we pool in with others so that the resources required for printing is minimised.
Plastic free, always.
Our goods may not come in shiny packaging, but they do arrive with a little nod from mother nature saying “thanks for thinking of me”.
Our mailers are made from compostable plant matter or recycled materials.
Our jewellery is packaged in upcycled faux suede pouches that were left over from our previous life as an independent jewellery maker. Hence our obsession with spiffy sustainable earrings.
The good guys of the postal industry.
All orders will be shipped to you via Sendle - Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service and certified B Corporation. They offset the emissions of every parcel that is picked up and delivered by supporting projects within Australia and worldwide which need attention.
One example of this is their support of Myamyn Conservation Australia in Victoria which protect the local ancient forest against further clearing and replant it with natural vegetation. This helps to preserve the habitat of endangered native species such as the scented spider orchid, the powerful owl, and the long-nosed potoroo.
