sustainability

the poésie by julie mission

Poésie by Julie believes that design and environmental responsibility go hand in hand. Working with fabric suppliers that have the necessary eco-verified certifications and ordering in small quantities - investing in quality over quantity.

Working on a made-to-order business model. Opposite to a made-to-stock or ‘off the rack’ model, Made-to-order drastically reduces the potential for wastage or surplus stock, abiding to Poésie by Julie’s strong belief of being an environmentally conscious and sustainable brand. Making the garments once orders are received, rather than presuming and guessing the demand adheres to being a slow fashion label.

Poésie by Julie believes in challenging fast fashion, to push consumer habits to change the perception of how quickly items should be available. These small drawbacks, such as a longer wait to receive a Poésie by Julie piece, seems tiny when comparing to the negative effects caused by over-production. Vast quantities of stock in the fashion industry go unsold each year and end up in a landfill, releasing harmful gases into our atmosphere. In worse cases, unsold stock is burnt, creating even more harm to our environment. Made-to-Order offers a desirable alternative to the Made-to-Stock model for sustainability.

Poésie by Julie only source and use natural fibre fabrics with eco-verifications and as little ecological impact as possible. Synthetic fabrics such as polyester, nylon and acrylic (all of which are a form of plastic) are not only harmfully produced, but contribute to micro-plastic pollution each time the material is washed.
