OhSevenDays is a mindfully made womenswear label creating sustainable staples from dead stock fabrics based in Istanbul Turkey. Essentially, we make slow fashion from fast fashion's leftovers! We offer Monday to Sunday dressing made from ethical beginnings to sustainable endings.
Our compact collections revolve around an understated yet charismatic aesthetic and are designed to be multi-functional and compatible within capsule wardrobes.
The OhSevenDays label was born after Founder, Megan Mummery stumbled across a small district of Istanbul selling off-cut fabric rolls leftover from large garment manufacturers. This unused fabric meterage can be doomed for landfill due to excess manufacturing or miscalculated consumptions. This discovery sparked an idea; the idea to create a womenswear brand that uses the left overs to create sustainable regenerative fashion.
At OhSevenDays we promote the idea of 'slow fashion' and want to contribute to the concept of 'The Power of Circularity'. We produce our garments with sustainability in mind and therefore source materials from deadstock fabric rolls. Being based in Istanbul, one of the textile manufacturing capitals of the world, we are lucky to have access to these factories and their beloved forgotten leftovers!
We believe you should know a bit more about the clothing you wear. From design and manufacturing, to sales and distribution, the garments we all wear have a long lifecycle before they even make it to our wardrobes. We believe in giving customers complete transparency and it's our aim to ensure you know where your garment originates. We want to give you a behind the scenes view of the brand's journey, all the way from stitch to store.
Our collections are all produced in Istanbul by our partner manufacturing facility. Our factory is a fully audited, fair trading and worker friendly company and is member of the ethical trade membership organisation Sedex. The membership ensures businesses better their social and environmental performance and improve working conditions throughout the supply chain.
We hope that sharing the story of our production brings some personality to our garments and that next time you buy a piece, you give some thought to the multitude of people it took to create it.
Our fundamental goal is to promote sustainable manufacturing practices and lifestyles. Share our message and increase awareness of the social injustices that occur in the mainstream fashion industry by asking other brands 'Who Made My Clothes?'.
Founder & Designer:
Canadian/Australian Megan Mummery founded OhSevenDays after a move to Istanbul and discovering a huge untapped resource in the form of surplus/deadstock fabrics. This ignited the idea to create small batch collections that were not only sustainably sourced, but also under ethical work standards.
