Our E-commerce site aims to be a platform that will provide a selection of garments exclusively from brands which have a strong foothold in environmental production and ethical manufacturing practices. By creating a central retail site it will allow customers to easily navigate through a catalog of garments and discover new brands which all share similar standards and values.
Unlike many existing retailers, we want to offer exclusively a selection of brands which share our values in sustainability and environmental innovation.
We are not a large corporate business startup, but a small group of individuals who want to make purchasing sustainable gear simpler.

A simple, powerful, SEO E-commerce site
Being an online retailer means the use of search engine optimisation and targeted ad campaign are crucial for the sites visibility. Both members in the team involved in web development have great fluency with the use of digital marketing and site optimisation tools to ensure potential customers see we exist.
Just like a brick and mortar store, our e-commerce store needs to show off our brands while focusing on the sites functionality, simplicity of use, clean code and design to ensure a refined shopping experience. Refer to sites basic structure and design preview (Right).
Direct customer contact is essential. Being a small team, our work cycle is simplified; order stock, photograph it, pack and dispatch. We are here to deal with customer enquiries, feedback and provide them with a personal service ensuring they get a reliable and simplified shopping experience.
