What does pre-launch mean?

The OVer Company started almost 5 years ago at our kitchen table, and coincidentally, it's where we sit today as I write this. When this business started, it grew more than we ever could have anticipated. The incredible support of our customers worldwide, with a largely Canadian customer base, has made it 100000% possible for our brand to grow to where we’re at today. This 5-year journey has been entirely self-funded with the help of our amazing customers and retail partners worldwide. To say we are thankful is an understatement. Your support has allowed us to grow our team, design and bring in new fabrics exclusive to The OVer Company, broaden our product selection and now expand The OVer Company styles, sizes and products with our Sleepover collection, created for the entire family! You guys have asked, we’ve listened, and we are delivering!

Thanks to the support of our customers and retail partners during the Sleepover pre-launch campaign, we were able to produce this collection of beautiful sleepwear pieces for the entire family. Coming this fall, available in 4 different pieces, a wider range of sizes, with different print + colourway selection.

We cannot wait to see you coordinate and mix + match in the softest, most comfortable sleepwear line. It has meant the world to us to have your support on this and we are continually thankful for what you've all given our brand in the past almost 5 years!

With extreme gratitude,
Sabrina + Michael Maulucci
Founders, The OVer Company
 

Sleepover FAQ's

Why Sleepover?
Sleepover is an idea that came from what we wanted for our own families. When The OVer Company first started, we designed products with mostly mama + babe in mind. Our idea was simple – we wanted to make life easier for the modern mom.

While we are proud of the work that we have done to meet that goal, your stories have inspired us to continue innovating. The loyal customers The OVer Company has had the privilege of serving for the last five years have also grown their families alongside ours, which is why we are expanding our line.

Inclusion of the entire modern family is now and will continue to be a priority of The OVer Company in who we serve with our products, services, and voice.

Who designed the Sleepover collection?
All of the new Sleepover pieces have been designed in-house by founder Sabrina Maulucci, alongside one of the most reputable garment designers in Canada. With versatility, practicality, and ultimate comfort in mind, these products are made to last. It was a yearlong process of sampling, product-testing, and perfecting the patterns and details to be ideal for the whole modern family.

What about the design process?
 The design of each of the Sleepover pieces is based on feedback from real families. You will find the Sleepover pieces to be our most practical and versatile yet, resounding with The OVer Company's mission statement: "… making the everyday life of the modern family easier".

The environment is important to us at The OVer Company, so to reflect that, the Sleepover collection will be produced mainly with bamboo material- one of the most sustainable fibres on the planet. The bamboo blend alongside our uniquely designed pieces make these the perfect sleepwear staples for your family's wardrobe. The antibacterial and temperature-regulating properties make bamboo the ultimate fabric for sleepwear, not to mention the buttery soft touch we all love!

Our prints have been designed so that your family can either match or coordinate pieces that fit each person's unique style.

Is Sleepover made in Canada?
Great question! Since there is an extremely long safety testing process for children’s sleepwear, among many other reasons, we have sourced an incredible Canadian-owned team in Taiwan to produce the Sleepover collection. They are able to perform all of the same safety testing to ensure the Sleepover pieces are safe for everyone. This manufacturing facility is ethical and environmentally friendly, which is important to us. They also use recycled rainwater, and renewable wind energy, which sets them apart.

Our partners value their team members and provide compensation 15% above the industry average, as well as having a leadership team that is made up of 80% women.

We know working with this team is the right choice for our company, and by choosing this route, we are able to bring our customers numerous options of quality pieces that are eco-friendly in their production from start to finish.

There are production facilities available to us here in Canada that are not run ethically or with environmental integrity, both of which are factors important to our brand. “Made in Canada” does not always mean “made ethically”.

Being manufactured in a facility that holds the same values as our brand, upholding incredible quality and safety testing, and allowing the creative freedom we needed to design and perfect the details of this line makes partnering with this company the best decision for The OVer Company.

When can I expect pre-ordered Sleepover items to ship?
We are anticipating the arrival of all Sleepover pieces to our local Ontario warehouse between the end of September and early October. Pre-orders will begin shipping in mid to late October. We will work as quickly as we can behind the scenes to get pre-orders out the door; We are just as excited to get these amazing pieces into your hands as you are!

What if I want to change the size of a piece on my pre-order?
We understand sometimes children grow at a different rate than expected, and every child is unique. There will be a two-week window from September 1 to 15 to change the size of your pre-ordered Sleepover pieces. If you realize the size ordered will no longer fit yourself or your child when the items are delivered in the fall (expected shipping is October 2020), this will be the time to make those changes.

We will do our best to respond to and accommodate size changes on a first-come, first-served basis, based on extra inventory availability. All Sleepover size request changes can be made by emailing sleepover@theover.co with your order number, the item you'd like to switch, and preferred size. 

What about your exchange policy if the size I chose doesn't fit the way I like?
We've got you. We completely understand that purchasing apparel online is tough, and sometimes the size or style don't fit the way you'd like once you get it in-person.

If you receive a Sleepover item in the fall that doesn't fit quite right, we will do our best to accommodate an exchange of size or print. Alternatively, you may receive a credit towards another item or future purchase. Due to the nature of the pre-launch campaign, refunds will not be offered. We stand by the quality of our products and want you to absolutely love your Sleepover purchase!

What if I wasn’t able to take part in the Sleepover pre-launch campaign? Can I still get my hands on these items?
Post-launch, we will have our products available on our website and in-store for customers and retailers. Just in time for holiday gift giving, we’ll have a wide selection of sleepwear items in all styles – The OVersleeper, OVer kids sleep set, OVer mama sleep dress, and OVer dad sleep shorts.
