How are our prices created?
The following principle applies to octopulli:
First comes the people and the material and then comes the price!
What do we mean by that?
When a product is created, we ask ourselves many questions.
What material do we want to use? What can/should the
manufacturing process look like? Who is involved in the process? What will be the demand (need) for the product? We try to answer all these questions with as little price pressure as possible. That's why we at Oktopulli don't ask ourselves how much a product should cost, but: What is its value?
On the one hand, the value arises from the processes that lie behind the garment. The choice of material, the production, the way it is sold. And on the other hand from the question of what our work as a whole "is worth" to us as participants in this production process.
not look at the "usual market prices" throughout the value determination process. We don't want to
put ourselves under pressure to match prices that don't
reflect the value of our products, or even add something that doesn't really reflect the
value-added cost of the product.
We see the fact that clothing has a value that needs to be depicted as a statement,
a fact that we have to keep
conscious of in times of fast fashion. Solidarity prices can be an instrument to make fair and resource-saving fashion accessible to more people
without depriving the product of its value.
