Product

Where are your items made?

All of our apparel products are made locally, in small batches, in Toronto, Canada.

All of our candles are made in the USA and hand poured.

What do you do with products once they’ve been returned?

Introducing SIDIA Collects: A new program we are rolling out that preserves the afterlife of our products. SIDIA will collect garments from customers who are finished with them and either donate them to Dress for Successor in the future work with mills to break them down into recycled fabrics.

What’s the best way to wash your products?

Wash cold with similar colors, lay flat to dry. Items placed in the dryer may shrink. See more on caftan care and washing instructions here

For styles made with natural fibers (Athena, Wild Grace, Gaia), you may notice your item becoming slightly stiff after washing. This is the nature of the fabric - once worn it will immediately begin to soften. 

What are your candles made of?

Each candle is made from a soy-coconut wax blend with a lead-free cotton wick, and formulated with a blend of essential oils, natural & clean synthetic fragrances. 

The vessel is a frosted ombre glass, made in the USA.

Sustainability

Are your candles non-toxic and cruelty free?

Our candles are non-toxic, and free of parabens, sulphates, phthalates and mineral oils, and are vegan + cruelty free.

Why Soy Coconut Wax?

Our candle wax blend is plant-based and derived from environmentally friendly, renewable resources, and produce a non-toxic, clean burn that emits less smoke & soot. 

Coconut and Soy candle waxes are also slow-burning, prolonging the life of your candle, with a superior ability to hold and emit fragrance.

Is your packaging eco-friendly?

Our candle and headband packaging is made from FSC paper and can easily be disassembled and recycled.

What is Tencel Lyocell?

As part of our sustainability practices, we use Tencel Lyocell for a selection of our caftans and sets.

Tencel Lyocell is a material derived from sustainable wood sources, produced with optimum use of natural resources such as land and water, with a recovery rate of 99.9%. The fabric is ideal for sensitive skin due to the smooth fibre surface, and is the most durable of all cellulose fibres. Produced using an eco-friendly closed loop manufacturing process. 

What does OEKO-TEX certified mean?

The majority of our fabrics are OEKO-TEX certified, which is a worldwide consistent, independent testing & certification system that tests for harmful chemicals, both regulated and non-regulated, which may be harmful for human health.
