Hi beautiful babes,
Meg here! Nette Rose was created during my first year of fashion studies, she was just a concept then and I was (and I am) still learning my way around the world of design - having a passion for textiles, dresses and vintage finds
Nette Rose materialised during my final year after I sold all of my vintage clothing at markets for ‘seed money’ I knew Nette Rose was first and foremost going to always be designed for the babes who know and are learning the power of dressing for themselves.
Hence our mantra was born.
She is a wild one. With a gentle soul.
Who sways to her own rhythm and dresses for herself.
Our name also came at the very early stages,
Blessed with two groovy grandmothers, one Rose and the other Nette (pronounced Nettie) who both are an inspiration from their cheeky know what they want attitude, classic style, adventurous spirit and inspiring me to get into fashion and sewing. It was a no-brainer from day one who the Nette Rose babe was and how she got her name.
We love what we do and we take great pride in what we do.
Intimates made by beautiful babes for beautiful babes (that’s you honey!)
Ethical production is at the top of our list. We keep the good tunes rolling in studio, we have flexible hours and we know when a day off is needed. We have a “speak your mind” policy within our studio space, which is full of cheek, laughs and a little sass.
We keep things professional but also think of ourselves as the brand version of that one friend you can call up anytime have a splash of wine and chat all things fabulous.
We do sustainability; we think it’s not only damn cool but a necessity. Does eating vegan and saying hell no to single use plastics in studio count? Perhaps not.
We keep things limited.
Lace we design and produce is done in limited numbers and we choose to rather sell out than have wasted fabric added to landfills. Because we all know that those landfills are looking pretty stocked up already.
Fabric off cuts in studio? Yep they are unavoidable but they have not left our studio - we are stocking up and hoping to upcycle it all into something lovely.
We think about the little things, right down to our thread which holds our intimates together, and the company we source from does it with sustainability in mind.
We source from a South African based company who have a zero landfill policy, utilize solar energy from our warm South African sun and have since planted 1000 olive trees to help reduce the greenhouse gas CO2 from the air and offset their emissions. How cool are they?
