goss – an everyday wear brand creating versatile apparel solutions

We caught up with Astrid Cioata – founder of goss. We’ve admired Astrid’s work for so long and we’re so excited to be the first to share the story of her small business journey. Read on to hear how Astrid started goss, what inspires her and how she includes sustainability throughout the whole process.

About Us

goss was founded in 2022 when Astrid Cioata decided to create an everyday wear brand that is rooted in sustainability with timeless and effortless pieces. She started by selling handcrafted items on her Instagram and within the month she had started to grow the brand full-time in her design studio.

goss uses its platform to make an impact in their community socially and environmentally from the design process all the way to the packaging. Each item is handcrafted in Toronto with sustainable or natural fibers and is then sent off in compostable packaging.

goss also wanted their community to be able to contribute to their sustainable journey, so for each item that you purchase 1 tree is planted.

Fabric Technologies

goss starts the designing process by envisioning items that can be worn in everyday life. By ensuring each piece can be dressed up or down. By sourcing pristine natural and sustainable fibers, not only do they produce high-quality products, but one that lasts a lifetime.

The main fabric the brand uses is Tencel Modal which is a strong and flexible fabric created from regenerated cellulose in the beach-tree pulp. The best sustainable feature of the material is that it is compostable and biodegradable.

On-The-Go Bralette This supportive and on-trend bra top is double-layered for maximum support. We designed it to be comfortable for everyday use but in an elevated style to wear it out at night. It’s out of our classic Tencel ™ Modal fabric, which uses x20 less water than traditional cotton to be produced.

Mini Tube Skirt- Our mini tube skirt has a flattering double-layered band and flows out for daily wear.
