We only produce in small quantities and only as much as can be sold via our e-store or as much as we receive bulk requests from corporate companies to make custom-design products for them, against crazy consumerism. Also, we recycle, up-cycle and reuse the products which could not be sold.
Supply products made with 100% eucalyptus TENCEL (which is new, natural revolutionary fabric), biodegradables or recycled materials.
All of our products are sourced from factories that use stringent production procedures via innovative product design, low impact organic agriculture, efficiency in manufacturing, and heavy monitoring and compliance with social and environmental impact according to EU Regulations and EN Standards & ISCC Plus.
Message from our Founder & CEO
My approach to business is about pioneering the collision of different forms within a harmony with the aim of reflecting the versatility that I have. I satisfy inasmuch as I can be a bridge person by baring my thoughts and experiences with others through my works.
Unfortunately fast-fashion wastes have great harmful effects on the environment. Approximately 100 million tons of non-recyclable clothing is ending up in landfills every year. Considering that fast consumption continues, it is statistically calculated that this amount of waste will reach 140 million tons at the end of the next 10 years.
In addition, the textile industry is responsible for 10 percent of global carbon emissions. The higher the carbon footprint, the greater its impact on global warming and climate change.
As a brand that has focused on these ignored facts and volunteered to be a part of the studies in line with its precautions, we act with the awareness that sustainability and recycling are the basic concepts that should be focused on in this context. In addition to ensuring that all of our existing products are recyclable and/or biodegradable, as a sensitive woman entrepreneur, I continue to work on expanding the range of environmentally friendly products.
Moreover we are proud to reveal the environmental awareness and socially responsible nature of our brand The Unique Organic as a member of the international environmental platform 1% For Planet.
Fundamentally, meeting the ESG criterias is the core value of The Unique Organic. Developing and piecing together the various elements accordingly that comprise a business with an authentic way is what I am doing. And I feel lucky to be able to do it wholeheartedly.

ENVIRONMENTALIST CEO & ESG MENTOR
Fashion is a 1.5 trillion dollar industry, yet the people who make our clothes mostly live in poverty. 80% of textile workers are women.
They are essential to the functioning of the fashion industry but face socio-economic and political challenges that make them more vulnerable than their male counterparts.
Women workers may face abuse, forced and unpaid overtime, deductions from their wages, and gender-based violence. Despite working 12 hours or more a day, six days a week, they struggle to make ends meet. Some of them are working without a contract or social protection. Trapped by the very nature of informal work, they are not protected by labor law, are isolated from their employers and co-workers, and lack information on their rights. It is virtually impossible to establish relations with trade unions and thus to make their voices heard and assert their rights.
We, The Unique Organic have committed to address human rights throughout both our supply chains and our inner processes.
The photo shooting that we had with hill tribe farmers for our women sunglasses collection, is one of our initiatives to make these invisible workers visible.
