Everyone brings something special to the Oscha workplace, contributing a rich variety of skills and experiences from different backgrounds and cultures, making it a vibrant and creative environment!
We love that our production happens wholly in the UK, we are proud to be providing good working conditions for local people, and to be making meaningful contributions to the local economy. By creating jobs for skilled local machinists we are able to support the re-growth of Scotland’s once-flourishing textile industry.
Oscha is a Real Living Wage employer and our employees enjoy a flexible working scheme as well as opportunities for ongoing skills development.
We all work hard to make sure Oscha is a healthy, safe and comfortable working environment. Each wrap, ring sling and carrier is crafted in an airy space full of natural light and colourful inspiration. Staff can grab a herbal tea or cappuccino and a healthy snack to enjoy in the Oscha garden on their breaks, but more often than not, they’re enjoying the sweet treats frequently sent in by our generous customers!
Our small team of in-house designers are always hard at work creating new designs and researching new responsibly sourced yarns. With years of design and weaving knowledge between them, Zoe and Towera are always looking for new techniques to use in our fabrics in order to give them the perfect wrapping qualities for you to enjoy.
Along with colleagues from the Customer and Marketing team, they listen closely to feedback and ideas from customers, which is often shared through Clan Oscha. Combining this input with their own vision for the next collection of slings and carriers, they are able to ensure that Oscha has a variety of exciting new fabrics to offer customers each month.
Hand-drawn designs are sketched out and translated into complex weave structures using specialised programmes. These are then sent to our mill in England, our exclusive agreement with this luxury mill allows us to work closely with a team of highly skilled weavers who then lovingly craft our fabrics.
Once new fabrics arrive at our solar-powered Scottish workshop our Production team are ready to start cutting and stitching your slings. A custom-made machine is used to cut the fabric ready for wraps and ring slings, while our carriers are hand-cut on our cutting table.
If you purchase a made to order item, your sling or accessory will be cut especially for you before being passed to one of our skilled machinists. Traditional tailoring skills are used to craft the intricate pleats and folds of our ring slings and carriers, with each Oscha wrap, sling and carrier carefully constructed to ensure longevity and quality. Each machinist will stitch a wee tag with their name into your carrier so you can see who crafted your sling.
We have a small Quality Control team who inspect every item to ensure the quality of our slings and carriers. Sidra, Julie and Fiona also pack the items in soft organic cotton totes, before signing their name on the tag.
Our shipping team are fast on their feet, moving quickly around our stockroom to pick and pack purchases ready for shipping out to our customers. We try to get orders shipped as quickly as possible and our shipping team works hard every day to make this possible.
