Partnering with the best            

This is something we feel very strongly about. We already know that the fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world, consuming more energy than both the aviation and shipping industries combined. And thanks to its long lead times and energy-intensive production practices, it's no surprise that the industry is responsible for 10% of global greenhouse gases. This is why Oct. Label has partnered with a garment wholesaler who is just as committed to minimizing its environmental impact as we are. Our LA-based wholesaler uses dramatically less water than the average clothing manufacturer, powers its facilities using solar energy, and produces almost no landfill waste from fabric cutoffs. (Any excess cut offs are repurposed into smaller garments or upholstery stuffing). I'd say that's not bad.

It may come as a surprise that we (happily) disclose this information - especially when so many apparel companies choose to keep their production methods hush hush - but we feel it's a critical aspect of how we do things here at Oct. Label. Not only does this process create transparency with our customers, but it also means we decrease the risk of generating unnecessary waste. You see, with this approach, rather than produce en masse and risk holding on to obsolete inventory, we only produce a garment when a customer actually makes a purchase. This means we can ensure everything we are producing is making its way into the hands of our happy customers!
