Behind the scenes, working on Bastet Noir pieces

                                                                           
WE CREATE CUSTOM, BESPOKE FABULOUS CLOTHING THAT SUIT YOUR PERSONAL STYLE AND FIT, FLATTER AND FOLLOW YOUR BODY SHAPE. WE DON'T BELIEVE IN SIZES, BECAUSE EVERY BODY IS DIFFERENT AND SO WE DON'T HAVE PLUS, PETITE OR TALL SECTIONS. WE MAKE CLOTHES THAT FIT EVERY BODY TYPE.

BASTET NOIR CREATES FOR WOMEN WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO ROAR, SPEAK UP, MOTIVATE AND EMPOWER.


WE DESIGN FOR STRONG AND BOLD BADASS BABES WITH POWERFUL VOICES, INDIVIDUALITY AND SUBSTANCE. WE CELEBRATE EVERY INCH OF IMPERFECTION THROUGH PERSONALIZED AND CUSTOM FASHION PIECES, MADE TO EMBRACE EVERY WOMAN'S BODY TYPE.

SUSTAINABILITY


WE BELIEVE IN CONSUMING FASHION RESPONSIBLY, THAT'S WHY WE HAVE NO-WASTE POLICY. EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING IS TAILOR-MADE TO CUSTOMER'S MEASUREMENTS AND PRODUCED ONLY WHEN A CUSTOMER ORDERS IT. OUR ON-DEMAND PRODUCTION PROMOTES SUSTAINABILITY BY REDUCING WASTE AND IS ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS AND FRIENDLY. BY NOT KEEPING INVENTORY, WE ELIMINATE UNNECESSARY WASTE AND MAKE HIGH QUALITY FASHION PIECES, PERSONALIZED TO FIT YOUR CURVES.

Behind The Scenes

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

WE'RE DOING ALL WE CAN TO TAKE SIGNIFICANT STEPS TO KEEP OUR LAND, AIR AND WATER CLEAN. OUR ENTIRE PRODUCTION AND SUPPLY CHAIN IS SUPER LOCALIZED WHICH MEANS OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT IS VERY LOW. ALL OF THE FABRICS WE USE ARE DISCARDED MATERIALS FROM PRODUCTION FACTORIES AROUND NORTH MACEDONIA.

PRODUCTION PROCESS


Our community of women single parents working on the pieces

EACH BASTET NOIR'S GARMENT IS ETHICALLY PRODUCED BY AN ARTISAN SEAMSTRESS. AS WOMEN WE LOVE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND APPRECIATE HANDMADE TECHNIQUES, THAT'S WHY WE MAKE SURE ALL THE FINE DETAILS ARE HAND STITCHED, RESPONSIBLY PRODUCED AND DIVERSE. IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE PROCESS IN MORE DETAILS CHECK THE

CHARITIES WE SUPPORT


EVERY THREE MONTHS WE MAKE SURE TO SUPPORT A CAUSE THAT'S DEAR TO US. SO HERE'S A LIST OF CAUSES AND CHARITIES WE'VE SUPPORTED AND ARE PLANNING ON SUPPORTING IN 2020. THIS LIST WILL BE ONGOING, SO WE'LL BE UPDATING IT EVERY THREE MONTHS.

DECEMBER 2019 & JANUARY 2020 - WE DONATED 10% AND 50% RESPECTIVELY OF OUR PROFIT TO WIRES TO HELP THEM FIGHT THE MONSTROUS WILD FIRES RAGING THAT KILLED 30% OF THE KOALA POPULATION.

JUNE 2020 - WE ARE GOING TO DONATE 15% OF OUR PROFIT TO THE OFFICIAL GEORGE FLOYD MEMORIAL FUND TO HELP THE INJUSTICE AND SUPPORT THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT.

JULY 2020 - WE ESTABLISHED A SPECIAL FUND FOR OUR SMALL COMMUNITY OF WOMEN SINGLE PARENTS. EVERY TIP YOU DONATE GOES DIRECTLY TO THE WOMAN WHO MAKES YOUR ITEM.

STAY TUNED THOUGH, CAUSE HOPEFULLY THIS IS NOT ALL.

WOMEN-OWNED


OUR PIECES ARE MANUFACTURED IN SMALL PRODUCTION STUDIOS IN NORTH MACEDONIA BY WOMEN SINGLE PARENTS AND WOMEN MICRO ENTREPRENEURS. EVERY ITEM PURCHASED CONTRIBUTES TO THEIR WELFARE AND HELPS THEM EDUCATE AND RAISE THEIR CHILDREN IN A COUNTRY WHERE THEIR AVERAGE MONTHLY INCOME IS ONLY 300EUR. BY SUPPORTING THIS LOCAL COMMUNITY, WE AIM TO HELP THESE WOMEN NOT JUST LIVE ABOVE THE POVERTY LINE, BUT ALSO GROW THEIR BUSINESSES.

MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE ONE WOMAN AT A TIME.

BECAUSE WE GIVE A DAMN!

Her background in fashion production for brands such as Loewe, Erdem and Balenciaga has enabled her to develop a sharp eye for details, which is exactly what makes her one hell of a designer.

She loves writing about anything and everything on her blog, as well as finding little hobbies that will keep her eyes as far away from a screen as possible. When she's not working you will probably find her enjoying a cup of coffee (strictly to-go) and hanging out with her friends, or a book - depending on the mood.

Beautiful, exquisite, made-to-order specific to my measurements haute couture! Made, shipped and delivered expeditiously. Will be ordering more in the future! Thank you :-)

Lori Michelle Weber

Beti and team were amazing to communicate with and did a tailored dress according to my measurements. The first shipment out got lost as it was during the time of the pandemic breakout, but Beti immediately made another dress and DHL-Ed it over without charging me. It’s really kind of her and the team and the dress of course is beautiful too! Thanks Beti !
