By merging elevated classics and timeless designs with social responsibility and environmental awareness, Esse creates investment pieces that are thoughtfully-made, whilst building a progressive supply chain and business model that encourages longevity, reduces waste and champions transparency.
SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS: Textiles is now the second most polluting industry next to oil. To reduce our impact on the environment, Esse makes pieces from more sustainable materials like Tencel, Bamboo and 100% Organic Cotton, which use much less resources than conventional cotton and are less-polluting than oil-based fabrics to produce. The rest of the fabrics that they use are over-ordered fabrics from designers and fabric warehouses. This allows the brand to give second life to fabric that may be destined for the landfill.
CONSIDERED DESIGNS: Rather than chasing trends, Esse designs their clothing with you, the wearer, in mind. Drawing inspiration from classics and translating them into modern designs and sartorial staples that evoke effortless sophistication, innate beauty and confidence. Combining season-less styles with inventive, sustainable fabrics and a refreshed colour palette, each of their styles are tested by time and are phased out or brought back accordingly.
RESPECTED MAKERS: One in every six people in the world work in the apparel industry. But it’s an industry that is one of the largest employers of child and forced labour. Each of Esse's supply chain partners are selected through a stringent set of criteria emphasizing product integrity and good business practice. Esse makes it a point to visit each partner personally to understand the production process and focus on building long term relationships.
