Eva Cassis is a Sydney based ethical fashion label with a ‘slow and humble’ philosophy. Launched in 2012, with a desire to create sustainable, considered and timeless garments and accessories - separating the label from the fast fashion market.
We believe it is imperative that we provide kinder, more sustainable options for our customers. A beautiful garment alone is not enough anymore, the story of process & creation should be transparent & beautiful too.
Our range of natural fiber garments are created by incorporating both Western & Japanese pattern making techniques to achieve elegant free flowing silhouettes that flatter the female figure at any size.
Drawing inspiration from feminine silhouettes, artisanal hand sewn details & the colours of nature. Our seasonal releases are handmade in house in limited quantities to ensure the label stays true to it's core values of slow manufacturing & consumption with minimal waste & environmental footprint.
Eva Cassis accessories are designed as the perfect complement to our unstructured free following garments. Our bold designs are created sustainably & ethically limiting environmental impact. Drawing inspiration from the traditional Japanese aesthetics of Wabi-Sabi centred on the acceptance of transience & imperfection.
Beautifully rustic in nature Eva creates her designs with handcrafted sustainable materials. Tactile recycled glass beads reminiscent of beach glass combined with hand carved native timbers (sustainably sourced of course), semi precious stones, recycled fabrics & handmade amulets collected from around the world.
The Sydney studio has successfully implemented processes to ensure there is minimum waste created through production with the aim of leaving a marginal environmental footprint.
We only use natural fibres & will always prioritise deadstock fabrics & fabrics dyed with low impact dyes minimising chemical pollution caused by the textile industry. (Not to mention much healthier for us to wear)
Off cuts are regularly incorporated into new designs & excess donated to make boomerang bags for charity, donated to fellow textile artists or donated to be used as punching bag stuffing reducing our wastage and environmental footprint.
We are a very proud plastic free biz & strongly follow a reduce & re use policy. Garments are never packaged in plastic & are safely stored & shipped with minimal packaging. Delicate items are shipped with recycled stuffing to ensure they arrive safely.
All collaborators are fairly paid and fairly treated in accordance with global ethical standards.
Above all, the Eva Cassis label is fighting the good fight for a fashion world that is kinder to the Earth, and its people.
