FOUNDED IN 2017 - THE NETHERLANDS
OSIER is a truly sustainable luxury brand. Our label combines the ethical, the timeless, and the beautiful to offer you luxurious bags. We care about people, animals and our planet which is why all of our products are handmade in Europe, using sustainable materials, where no animals are harmed in the design and manufacturing process.
With regards to sustainability & transparency, what are your core values that define how your brand operates?
At OSIER we do our best for the animals and the planet. Our mission is to revolutionize the fashion industry with a focus on sustainability, transparency and quality. We ensure to prioritize these values throughout all of our practices, from sourcing to manufacturing and packaging.
To start from the beginning, we use only vegan, eco-conscious materials within all of our products and productions. Our current collection includes lux, soft vegan elements combined with apple waste biomaterial that give the feeling of faux vegan "leather". We also use soft recycled lining fabrics and organic cotton dust bags, all made in Italy. Our manufacture is based solely in Europe between our head office in Amsterdam and our talented tight-knit team of machinists and designers in Bucharest, Romania. Keeping things local is important to our CO2 compensation pledge, and making every move possible to help our planet.
We compensate for the CO2 that is released through the making of our bags with green wind energy.
And we haven’t left anything out. Even our packaging is 100% recycled with no plastic in sight! Our OSIER boxes are made to measure for each of our bags, meaning no wasteful filling material.
As we continue to grow we are committed to giving back. We’ve started the ball rolling early with The Ocean Clean Up. This inspiring non-profit organization is based right here in the Netherlands. They work to develop innovative and advanced technologies that combat the overwhelming levels of plastics within our oceans. Currently they are cleaning the Great Pacific Garbage Patch over in California, one of the most polluted areas of the world. The reason we donate a percentage of our profits is because we and our customers alike all want to make a difference towards a better future. Through purchasing our bags you can reflect blissfully, knowing that you are part of this Ocean Clean Up journey!
With regards to sustainability & transparency, what are the "hot topics" you are currently working on and try to improve yourself on?
We are currently testing a new, innovative material: vegan cactus leather. Currently there are many interesting developments going on within the field of sustainable material innovations which we are very excited about!
