OUR APPROACH

THE VALUE OF OUR PIECES  
Our approach to making beautiful clothing is slower than most. We adhere to the highest standards of quality and practices in every step of our production and beyond. It was important to us for our production to be local and to ensure ethical practices are adhered to with all of the people we work with. Which is why we work with an amazing women owned and run manufacturer based in Los Angeles. The seamstresses who produce our garments are paid a liveable wage and work in a safe, comfortable working environment. They are proud of their work and in return put that passion into our product. 
On our debut collection, we worked closely with our manufacturing team to ensure we only needed 2 sample revisions. Our quantities started very small with only 60 sets produced. During our development phase we also collaborated with both our manufacturer and fabric supplier to ensure yields of fabric purchased matched as close as possible to yields needed to produce all 60 sets. Any excess material has been made into our selection of Doze hair accessories, resulting in zero fabric wasted. 
MATERIALS 
After both being diagnosed with cancer in our late-twenties, silk became an integral part of our day-to-day health journey and onwards. In an attempt to keep our hair during chemotherapy, we both started investing in silk products to ease shedding.
It was important for our brand's story to use silk as we aim to help all women feel their best during their darkest periods but also be practical. Silk is a circular textile and made with zero-waste. It is a natural fabric and is long-lasting and biodegradable. 
That being said, we acknowledge that silk production still has a long way to go. We are invested in finding preferred production for our future silk collections. 
GIVING BACK
Our mission at Doze is to give back as much as we can while also being able to continue to exist. We are 100% self funded, with no outside investment of any kind. Because of this, we want to be realistic in our initial donations in order to sustain our business and give back to this community we're so deeply invested in.  

Doze will be donating 2% of all profits to a charity of our choosing each season. Our mission is to work with organizations that are truly making an impact amongst cancer communities. Especially in young women.

Summer 2022, Doze will be working with The Breasties, the first all-inclusive non-profit organization that creates community for survivors, revivers, thrivers, and carevivers, impacted by breast and gynecological cancers. They are on a mission to empower through connection, free events and trusted resources, and to fund research for metastatic breast cancer. Their Sydney fund gives out roughly 10 grants a year of $500-$1000 dollars to Breasties in need.
