_BAIS is designed and made with love and pride in Perth, Australia.
_BAIS was founded by Perth fashion stylist, Sylvia Bogdanowski after realising that her styling clients all had the same fashion problems; a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. They were all missing those building blocks of a happy, loved and functional wardrobe.
“What goes with these amazing bottoms I just bought?”
“The classic white t-shirt of course!”
_BAIS is designed to fill those gaps and be the foundation of a woman’s wardrobe with a stylish edge. Every garment is effortless, not weighed down by trends and can be dressed up or down, making your wardrobe work even harder for you.
Every garment has been carefully created with the _BAIS babe in mind, to help complete and elevate what she already owns, making her look and feel innately stylish. With a nod to quality over quantity, each _BAIS piece is timeless and made from the highest quality fabric.
At _BAIS, sustainable and ethical practices are the norm.
_BAIS is a part of the solution, not the problem. Sustainability to _BAIS means treating people and the planet with care and respect, being careful and considerate of environmental impact and constantly evaluating how they do that. This is a process that will never end and is embedded in _BAIS and the way they do things.
_BAIS is not a fast-fashion label, nor do they follow trends. There are no ‘seasons’ at _BAIS. Each design is carefully created and constructed with intention and longevity in mind. _BAIS pieces are timeless, with a wash and wear philosophy. Take care of your _BAIS pieces, and they will serve you season after season.
The majority of _BAIS fabrics are sustainable (but not all – always a work in progress) such as organic cotton, hemp and linen. This means fewer pesticides and water are used to grow the fibres, as well as using the majority of the plant to make the fabric = no waste!
_BAIS does not make large quantities of garments. Each piece is made in limited numbers and some are only made to order. Fabric is ordered on an ‘as needed’ basis and is cut by a laser machine to minimise off-cut wastage. If there is any fabric leftover and it’s no longer needed, it is sold on to hobby sewers.
Design and manufacturing process.
Every single _BAIS piece is designed with purpose by Sylvia, to tick four boxes.
Will it suit most body shapes?
Will it go with other items a woman typically has in her wardrobe?
Will it stand the test of time and not go out of ‘fashion’?
Can it be dressed up or down?
Every _BAIS garment has a story to tell and is named after someone special in Sylvia’s life.
The whole cycle of making each _BAIS piece also supports local Australian industries, from fabrics, manufacturing and haberdashery to 100% of the _BAIS collection is cut and sewn in Perth, Western Australia. _BAIS has a high level of transparency in the supply chain, and are dedicated to local production. By keeping things local, everyone involved is paid a fair wage and did not suffer to make your clothing.
_BAIS wants you to sail through life with comfort and confidence in your style, knowing that you have purchased from a brand that is conscious of its impact.
