SUPPLY CHAIN

We don’t believe in keeping anything hidden.
Except our bras.

When it comes to concealing a bra beneath a cami or slip, we’re masters of disguise – but in all other matters, transparency is our raison d'être. From fibres to fastenings, we’re proud to be able to tell you the whole story behind our clothes. Scroll down to find out more. 

But we’re also proud to be a work in progress. Our business is as transparent as we can make it for now, but we’re still not satisfied. When there are gaps in our knowledge or mysteries in our supply chain, we push for answers and keep you in the loop.

Have a question, or a suggestion to help us do better? Let’s talk. 

We don’t believe in keeping anything hidden.
Except our bras.

Our Materials

Vegan silk

The perfect ethical silk didn’t exist – so we developed our own. Made from 100% Bemberg Cupro in a satin weave, our vegan silk features all the dreamy qualities you’d expect from old-fashioned silk but with the benefit of being cruelty-free, meaning no silkworms are harmed in its creation.  

Cupro is a by-product of cotton farming, made from cotton linter – a part of the plant that is often just thrown away. We use Bemberg Cupro so that no additional crops are planted, no extra water or soil nutrients are used and zero extra farmland is needed to create our fabric. We’re low maintenance like that.

Our magical fabric is woven exclusively for Bodica at a mill in South Korea, which has been servicing some of the world’s most coveted luxury fashion houses for over 20 years. They’re pioneers in natural, sustainable fibres, complying with the Higg Index and REACH regulations as part of their commitment to tread lightly on the planet. 

Finally, to achieve the timeless colours you love, our vegan silk is dyed with eco-friendly dyes and  finished using bio-enzymes to give it a gorgeous sheen. That’s our kind of glow-up. 

Bra Jersey

Our jersey is sturdy, but ultra soft – because your boob comfort is key. Bluesign-certified, the fabric is made from 100% recycled post-consumer polyester and recycled pre-industrial elastane at MITI Spa, an Italian mill that has championed eco-friendly practises for decades. A heritage company that embraces change? We love to see it.

Hardware

The hardware we use for our clasps and strap adjusters is manufactured by the family-owned Santoul factory in France. But where does the metal start life? It’s hard to say. Metal is something of a mystery in the fashion industry, but we’re on a mission to find out more – and we’ll keep you in the loop when we do.

Elastic

Crucial for that fits-like-a-glove feeling, our elastic is sourced from the UK’s Stretchlines mill, which champions quality and durability. No drooping here.

French Lace

The luxurious lace that edges our camis and slips is an icon in its own right: Dentelle de Calais-Caudry® Leavers Lace. Woven at Solstiss, a renowned French mill using 200-year-old methods, it’s a couture-grade trim to make you feel like the haute stuff you are.

Our Factory

Because every single one of our garments is made to order (with love) in our London studio, we’re proud to know exactly who makes your clothes – and how they like their tea. Our skilled seamstresses and machinists are all paid well above the living wage, and Bodica wouldn’t exist without their brilliant crafts(wo)manship.

Third-party factories didn’t work for us, so we decided to do things on our own terms. Our studio space is run by a social enterprise that works with talented women in Islington, North London, helping them to gain new skills and supporting them to get back into employment. By crafting your orders here, we help finance their futures too.  

Bringing our production in-house also means that we can minimise waste and allow for complete size personalisation – so nobody and no body is left behind.

Once your Bodica pieces are ready to meet you, we package each one in FSC-certified, recycled and recyclable boxes. Our product swing tags and envelopes are made from the same materials too, and we’re always looking for ways to waste less and use more. 

In case it wasn’t clear already, Bodica stands for systemic change. ‘This is the way it’s always been done,’ has never been a good enough reason for us, so we’re going against the grain of an entire industry to create a new blueprint for fashion. 

Fashion as it should be. Fashion that actually looks good – for women, for the planet, for the future.
