About Besight

Besight is the first community that puts human in the heart of the creation of clothes and accessories.

No more Business to Client, fashion needs Human to Human.

 

Each clothes or accessory produce by Besight is the fruit of a cocreation process involving our community of designers, consumers and manufacturers. In concrete terms, a Besight product is drawn by an artist and chosen by the public via a vote and/or a preorder. The artist earns royalties on all the sales and benefits of a boost of fame.

All of our textiles are organic, our materials are recyclables and each product is ecodesigned to integrate at the earliest in the choice of our process an environmental dimension. Finally, we assure that the people who make our garments and accessories are well considered and payed by choosing factories that prove with labels (Fair Wear Foundation, SA8000, …) that they respect our criterias.

Why this innovative model? The Besight Union

Who does it ever happen to go shopping with a very precise idea of ​​his need?

We all know what we want to wear, yet it is very often difficult to find it in stores

Why ? Trademarks never consult the public to ask for their opinion. The result is ephemeral collections that are quickly thrown away and clothes of a quality not always matching the standards.

We wanted to produce only the clothes and accessories that are the reflection of a wish, a desire. Return to a more reasonable consumption, a slow consumption.

The credo:

  • Clothing that truly appeals to the public thanks to the cocreation
  • No unsold products because we produce just what the public asks
  • State-of-the-art manufacturing using organic and recyclable materials and thanks to the selection of workshops in which respect for the human being is at the heart of concerns

Besight was born. The first startup that puts humans back at the heart of creation.
