our impact

OPERATIONS

We challenge industry standards by taking full responsibility of our garments and their impacts from fibre to finish. We hope to minimise our impact by adopting circular economy principles, helping to create positive change within the fashion industry.


  • DESIGN

    To ensure circularity of our garments, they are thoughtfully designed to transcend fleeting trends. We aim to increase longevity by selecting high-quality, durable materials. By selecting natural fibres, we can ensure items at end of life can be recycled or composted.

  • SOURCE

    The road to minimising unnecessary impact is paved with hurdles, with each collection holding their own set of challenges. Thanks to a network of carefully selected businesses, we can ensure our materials are sourced and products manufactured to international environmental and social standards.

  • MANUFACTURE

    Our garments are made in Bali, Indonesia. We have worked closely with the family operated business since 2015. Our factory is regularly audited by Qualspec, a globally accredited specialist in social compliance in the textile industry. We believe everyone should earn a fair wage, which is why our workers are paid above the national minimum wage, receive overtime premiums and annual leave.

  • EDUCATE

    We hope by sharing our knowledge others can reduce their impact by washing less, wearing for longer and keeping items circular. With an overload of information available these days, we want to keep it simple. Check out our Care Guide here.

MATERIALS

We have chosen to use only botanical fibres and durable fabrics, thus ensuring minimal environmental impact and longevity in our garments. Our fabric supplier, Hemp Fortext, offers full traceability from fibre to finish. They have numerous certifications with internationally recognized bodies such as Fair Wear Foundation, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Ecocert.


  • HEMP

    Hemp is a fast-growing plant that requires very little water to grow. It helps to enrich the soil making it ideal for crop rotation. Hemp is naturally resistant to pests, meaning it requires no pesticides or herbicides in its farming. It’s stronger and more durable than cotton, giving items a longer life cycle. Hemp feels like new linen, softening with each wash and wear without losing its strength.

  • GOTS COTTON

    Organic cotton helps to improve soil health as it is grown without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilisers. It increases water conservation as organic farming techniques are generally rain-fed, meaning less irrigation and less strain on water-scarce areas.

  • COTTON

    While 33% of our current collection is from generic cotton, we plan to eradicate it entirely in 2020.

OTHER MATERIALS

  • GARMENT BAGS

    We have eliminated single-use plastic poly bags, opting to use a compostable alternative.

  • BRANDING

    Our woven main and printed care labels are made from 100% recycled polyester threads, OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified.

  • PACKAGING

    We use 100% recycled paper bags, made in Australia from post-consumer wastepaper. For fragile items, we use a Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified Kraft paper product as an alternative to plastic bubble wrap. Our courier bags, from The Better Packaging Co, are made from corn starch and can be home composted.
