Or Basics began as one mother’s journey to find comfortable and sustainable clothes without harmful chemicals for her child. Finding them for her daughter turned out to be such a big challenge, that the founder, Lilija, decided to explore a new path: create them herself. After talking to manufacturers all over Europe, researching and testing different designs, the very first collection of Or Basics was born: functional unisex basics made of super soft organic cotton.
The brand creates the clothes it wishes for their own and their friend’s kids - soft, high-quality, sustainable and affordable basics made to last – caring deeply about the well-being of kids and our Planet.
Or Basics products are lovingly designed in Germany and produced ethically with 100% certified GOTS organic cotton by a family-run manufacturer in Porto, Portugal. This factory is deeply committed to sustainability & transparency and has been on the textile business for over 20 years. The brand also makes sure that the workers are paid and treated fairly, visiting regularly their production partner to make quality checks and ensure fair working conditions.
Or Basics chooses the most sustainable and responsible options in every point of their production chain – from the raw material to the packaging for their clothes – improving each time there is the chance to. What started has a mother's journey, evolved into a life ́s mission and together as a team, Or Basics is able to make the world a better place.
