OSIER is a high-end vegan fashion brand combining the ethical, the timeless, and the beautiful to offer luxurious, faux leather bags. OSIER cares about people, animals and the planet which is why all of the products are handmade in Europe using sustainable materials and harming no animals during the manufacturing process. Their mission is to disrupt the fashion industry, with a focus on sustainability, transparency and quality. Designed in Amsterdam, made from Italian materials and manufactured in Romania, OSIER is a truly European brand.
The brand uses high-quality faux leather, manufactured in Italy. This material has a less negative impact on the environment than leather (through the harsh chemicals used in the leather tanning process and the enormous amounts of clean water needed). Besides the obvious benefits of faux leather to animal welfare this material is very durable, so the bags can be used for years and years. The CO2 created in the manufacturing process is compensated by investing into green wind energy projects. A share of profits are donated to The Ocean Cleanup, a dutch NGO that fights the plastic patches in our oceans. The packaging is plastic free and the brand designs, sources and manufactures the goods in Europe to avoid long sea or airfreights that have a bigger CO2 footprint than local production. The factory is certified on various aspects to ensure the health and wellbeing of its workers: ISO 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Certification), ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental management), SEDEX.
