About Our Sales

About The Donna Ida Sample Sale 

The Donna Ida Sample Sale is one of our most popular events of the month where we give you a chance to snap up a bargain with samples and pieces from our archive. We believe denim is a sustainable, long term, versatile investment and so we make sure that all our samples go to good homes at minimal prices. There will be no wastage from our sample process and we just charge enough to cover our admin costs. 

  
All about The Donna Ida Sample Sale and FAQs

On the last Sunday of every month at 11am, we go live with The Donna Ida Sample Sale with current and previous drops. 

Sign up to our newsletter to receive the link to shop or check back on this page where the collection will go live at 11am on the Sunday.

Make sure you check out as soon as you have a piece you like. If you continue to shop around, then there is a chance someone else could buy the same piece.

As our Sample Sale pieces have been used to create our production please expect that they will have been used for photo shoots and will have been in the sampling room for quality control and measuring. We also sample across a wide range of sizes for wash trials and wear trials, which means a piece could have been worn to trial the fabric’s performance. If a piece is in more noticeable wear condition this will be highlighted in the description and the price will reflect this. Samples are made to create a style and sometimes it takes several samples to get to the final place where we are happy that a style can join the Donna Ida family, so please bear this in mind when purchasing a sample. Some pieces will be brand new but just didn’t pass our quality control and were not approved for bulk production. If there is something more noticeable such as a zip isn’t in the right position this will be noted, if it is just that the wash or fabric isn’t correct it won’t be noted as only we would notice it. The garment may therefore have a full price swing ticket on it but we didn’t accept these pieces as production from our factory. And then there are pieces that were full price on our website and we only have one or two left so we add them to the sample sale to clear them, or we may have added them to a sale and any units left have been added to the sample sale. This monthly event is a unique place to grab a bargain or look for the one that got away if you missed it on the website. Please read the description before purchasing, all pieces are sold as seen and listed, as no returns are accepted.

Unfortunately we are unable to combine shipping. 

All jeans are sampled in 25 or 26, and all jumpsuits and special pieces are sampled in XS or Small.  
We also have extra jeans sizes from 23 to 34 plus jumpsuit and special pieces from sizes from XS to XL where we have old archive stock from previous seasons. 

The size is specified on each item that it posted.

Be quick to secure that coveted sample at a special price! Good luck!
