Frequently asked questions and answers
The very beginning was related to defining the problem of fast fashion, as well as its solution. It all started when my husband and I (Sonja Nikolić-Oljača, designer and founder of the brand) watched the movie “True cost”, not so long ago in 2018. year, which speaks in a brutally honest way about the harmful effects of the fashion industry on the eco system, on the lives of the people of the third world, on the creation of addiction to shopping in Western countries, and therefore on the wear and tear of clothes that very quickly become waste.
According to data from the UN Economic Commission for Europe, the fashion industry produces as much as 10% of the world’s total CO2 emissions, which is five times more than the aviation industry. In addition, the fashion industry is responsible for 20% of wastewater. The problem lies not only in the production of clothes, but also in their disposal after they are no longer worn. Non-biodegradable materials sit in landfills for 200 years, clothes end up not only in landfills, but also in the sea, and polyester t-shirts release microplastics every time we wash them. This industry is heavily dependent on manual labor and employs around 40 million people around the world who are paid less than the minimum wage and work in inhumane conditions. Most of them are employed by women. On the other hand, the solution to that problem is local production, with careful selection of materials and models that will last a long time (so-called slow fashion).
I was aware that although women love comfort, they also love to look beautiful, to feel beautiful. With that idea, I set out in the direction of designing a collection that will be sufficiently attractive, affordable and wearable in the long run, so to say untrendy but timeless, and my husband in the direction of creating a web shop through which these products will be sold. This was followed by production planning, procurement of materials and accessories, the first, second, third stencils and their samples, and with a lot of effort and effort on both sides, 1. April 2019 the website cozy2wear.com starts working, and therefore the first, second, third, etc. orders arrive.
Since then, Cozy production and sales have been on an upward trajectory. The name COZY itself was a test name for us while I was dealing with production planning and not branding, however, when I had to give it a name, I was already too attached to COZY and that was it. As cliche as it may sound, it reminds us to never deviate from that path of comfort and softness.
When it comes to materials, we choose only 100% natural, allergen-free – organic certified cotton, modal, viscose, cotton twill and poplin shirt are some of the materials found in our collections. We use quality and soft materials for every piece of clothing because you deserve to feel your best in your second skin – the clothes you wear.
Organic cotton is produced in a traditional way, which, when compared to conventional cotton, is much more friendly to the global eco-system and human health. It is a far better choice for skin, especially sensitive and prone to allergies, because no chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or insecticides are used in its production, and therefore it does not harm the workers involved in its production.
Also, the production of organic cotton uses 70% less water and 60% less energy than the production of standard cotton. GOTS certification guarantees that cotton production is thoroughly checked and monitored from the source to the final product (available on request).

We want you to find all the most basic things you want in your capsule wardrobe with us, not to wander around the shopping center, not to buy something because someone shoved it under your nose, but because you really need it. The design is adapted to online shopping, and multiple body shapes, so we have a lot of elastic belts, wide models, tight and stretchy dresses, shirt-dresses with a belt that gathers at the waist.

Light and quick to put on and combine, COZY clothing is an investment in a more comfortable life.
A COZY girl just likes to be comfortable. It doesn’t matter to her what other people think about her, she wears her own style. She is sure of herself, knows what she wants, and always chooses quality over quantity. She wears clothes that bring out the best in her. She walks in it confidently, fluttering, unhindered, while people look at her and admire her lightness and energy. She wears clothes like her second skin, and chooses only natural materials. Brands and expensive brands do not attract her, and she finds true value in everyday life. Did you find yourself? Yes, that girl, that’s you.
