ABOUT THE BRAND

Olistic (adj) – Believing in a sustainable approach to fashion, caring for People and the Earth

Inspired by the 4 elements, Olistic The Label explores the connection between human beings and the Earth. Their sustainable luxury house was born from the desire to create both ethical and elegant garments. Based on biomimicry, their collection is made out of 100% natural certified organic fibres. Olistic aims to redefine the eveningwear, cocktail and wedding dresses by blending minimalist and romantic silhouettes with a contemporary bohemian twist. Their name comes from "holistic", which entails a whole approach where human beings share a deep connection with the Earth. Each garment is designed with eco-friendly materials such as peace silk, wood fibre and upcycled leather.

As a creator of social impact, the brand supports the work of women in organic sericulture cooperatives in India. In the deep Vedic tradition of Ahimsa (non-violence), the Silk of Peace is more than just a material: it’s a whole process respecting the silkworm’s life. True ornaments: cultured pearls, pearls and turquoises, embellish the collection and stress on the organic luxury dimension of the brand. In order to preserve a precious tradition and history, the embroidery is handmade by a community of craftsmen. Olistic is based on responsible productions, all pieces of the collection are assembled in a family workshop in Portugal. The house values the know-how of Haute Couture and applies demanding requirements as well as a rigour on the details and finish of all of its products. In a logic of durability, the pieces of each collection remain versatile for timeless elegance. They also offer tailor-made pieces and customized embroidery depending on the preferences and on the personality of each client. 

Why we love them? The brand promotes a slow lifestyle where the core values are: trust, passion and respect.
