At Euphoric Collection we believe that transparency is important. Euphoric Collection promises to remain transparent in our production processes. Find out below where our garments are made, who made them, where our fabrics are from, our sustainability efforts and more.
Our sustainable swimwear fabric range consists of Advanced Recycled Carvico techno-fabric made with ECONYL® - 100% regenerated nylon fiber from pre- and post-consumer materials such as ocean and landfill waste, fabric scraps, old carpets and more. Our sustainable fabric is Imported from Australia, and made in Italy.
Our sustainable swimwear fabrics are Black, White, Sand, Sahara, Espresso, Pohutukawa, Dusk, Sapphire, Pounamu and Sunflower.
Our loungewear shorts, pants and sweaters are made from fleecy cotton and polyester. This fabric is not sustainable however, if a sustainable option arises we will strive towards that direction. Our current loungewear fabrics are sourced from a New Zealand supplier.
We have made sure that all fabrics we do source meet our standards and are of the best quality, whilst aiming to source fabrics locally where possible. We have done plenty of our own tests on all fabrics to insure that the fabric quality is of standard and can withstand wear and washes. Our garments will last for seasons to come if cared for and washed correctly.
After the Mill, Euphoric Collection has an in-house studio in Masterton, New Zealand, where all bikinis and loungewear garments are cut, sewn and packaged by Natasha herself. Natasha does all of the manufacturing of making the garments herself, therefor we can insure that quality, love and sustainable efforts are constantly keep to a high standard.
At Euphoric Collection we make sure that all components that go into the make-up of each garment is of the highest quality. Our threads, needles, sewing machines, elastics and more, are all supplied with quality in mind. This reflects our pricing.
The biggest part of our sustainability efforts is having a made to order process. This means that the only garments that are ever made are ones that are ordered. This means that we have no excess stock of ready made garments on hand at any time. This means no clothing is ever thrown into waste.
We have a samples page on our website that we list up if we have any samples or returned garments on hand. These items either go up for sale at a very discounted price, or they are donated to locals and friends.
In regards to cutting our fabrics, we insure that we create as minimal waste as possible by making sure that when we cut out our patterns on our fabric that we do this efficiently to reduce scraps. Any end cuts that are big enough all go into our scraps box where we can use for smaller patterns, scrunchies, sewing machine tension tests or, donated to locals.
We have reduced our carbon footprint by using biodegradable mailer bags. Our mailer bags are made from plants and are compostable from home or commercially.
Larger orders are sent out in our tote bags, and smaller orders are sent in a draw string bag or in tissue paper. Both of our tote bags and draw string bags can be re-purposed.
Our thank you cards, care cards and lint tags are made with recyclable papers.
Our hygiene stickers remain made from plastic to ensure sanitary standards.
Euphoric Collection supports many New Zealand suppliers. We always seek to support local suppliers before heading off shore.
At Euphoric Collection, we strive to continue our sustainability efforts and to constantly improve. We will continue being transparent about our processes and we will continue to strive to do our part as a slow fashion brand.
