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!

"I love when a dress mimics art, and that's definitely the case with this made-to-order sustainable dress from Bastet Noir. I love every aspect of how this dress is designed. From the adaptable bow straps and the semi-sweetheart neckline to the wraparound skirt, it's the dreamiest dress I've ever owned. - Jasmine Fox-Suliaman"

""This environmental-friendly brand creates custom-made clothing manufactured in Macedonia by women single parents and micro entrepreneurs. Its localized factories help to decrease the carbon footprint in the production and supply chain. “Changing our society for the better one woman at a time, because we give a damn!”, Bastet Noir structured a fund that allows customers to leave a tip that is donated directly to the studio where your clothes were made.
