Oddish is an Australian slow fashion & jewellery label.
Their garments & jewellery tell the story of the understated anarchist.
In Oddish they recognise the shared responsibility for our people + planet. This is their response to creating an inclusive, considered future.
Every piece in their collection is handcrafted by Australian artisans using sustainable and ethical practices.
These designs are intended to travel alongside the wearer as a trans-seasonal, enduring companion. They are made with purpose to be cherished, shared, gifted and when the time comes mended, repurposed or recycled.
Oddish represents a shift towards a more collaborative, informed approach.
How are Oddish items created?
Their makers work from their own studios, in their own time and are paid Australian wages.
All jewellery is handmade by Oddish in their home studio on the Sunshine Coast.
They work closely with makers to produce each piece in small batches, lessening the impact on the environment brought on by large-scale production and large-scale waste.
Fibre to Fabric
Oddish partners with suppliers who have the same ethos at their core – sustainability, minimal environmental impact and fair working conditions throughout their supply chain.
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.
Oddish's 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 the blended fabric originated in Turkey and India.
Eco-Friendly Low Impact Dying
All 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.
