SEDA Collective is a purpose driven business. There are many costs that are goes into our business, without looking at this detail breakdown our prices may seem high to you.

So lets look at true cost behind the ALIYA coat (pictured above) 

ALIYA Coat total price = $1295.00

- Handmade vintage textiles and materials = $300

- Labour of love by our artisan = $200

- Shipping to Australia and customs = $120

- Payment fee = $30

- GST = $129.50

- Shipping to you = $30

- Packaging = $30

- Donation to Uyghur Initiative = $50

Which leaves us with SEDA working cost of $405.50. This money helps us to directly invest back into our sustainable business, to fund our next collections and many other costs that goes into our business, list below;

- Online marketing

- Website hosting subscriptions

- In person market stall fees, pop up store fees and any travel costs that is involve

- Hiring photographers and models

- Graphic designers, web developers

- Designing, pattern making, sampling

- months of calls back and forth with our artisans

- Research/Invest into other artisanal communties

- Expanding our team

Although we are still a very small business we always have our artisans and you in our best interest, for this reason we decided to sell our coats exclusively through our online boutique, this means that we wont have the exposure other retailer may bring us but we are willing to take that chance as retail mark ups can be anywhere from 50%-70%, which means the AYPATAM Vest would have retailed for $1200, ALIYA coat would have cost $1600-$1800 and the RABIYA COAT around $2500.

We aim to be transparent with you on this journey as you watch us grow. We hope you see and feel the love we put into everything we do.

Stunning

It took me a while to decide which cute hummingbird to get as they are all so pretty. I settled on this one and I am so happy with it. The colours are stunning and the beading is so detailed. I really appreciate that they are all hand made and one of a kind.

Beautiful butterfly brooch

I love that it is one of a kind and handmade. The greens are just gorgeous.

Beautiful handiwork

After some complications with my order, I received transparent communication and rectification. The earrings arrived quickly, as described, and were absolutely beautiful. The handiwork is superb and of excellent quality. Recommended as a thoughtful gift for anyone interested in supporting grass-roots projects, artisans, and Indigenous livelihoods, and of course, fans of colourful and intricate beadwork!

Awesome!

I love these gorgeous earrings! They look almost like feathers 😊

Stunning

They’re so beautiful and with all the time and care that goes into making them I was worried about how they’d travel and worried about how fragile they might be, but they are very well made, were excellently packaged and are divine!

I’m from Colombia after years I haven’t been back home. It’s made nostalgic the exceptional work of artisans of my home country. 🙂

Love love it !

I have always loved the SEDA's Collective products. But the Mariposa Midi Monarch exceeded my expectations. It was small than a previous order and the sizing was just right. Have gotten many compliments and interest in where I got the earrings from. They are very popular and very stunning! Certainly a favourite of mine. Highly recommend and worth the purchase.
