sustainability & ethics


 MAKE

All our collections are made in Australia with SS20 all made in house in our Sanct Studio on Wurundjeri Country. 

Our patterns are all made by local talents RB Patterns. 

 

FABRICS


Our fabrics and components are all chosen in circular harmony with the planet. We use only natural fabrics, choosing either deadstock or certified organic textiles. 

Deadstock natural fibres: Deadstock fabrics are those that are left over from other brands/designers. These fabrics are at risk of going to landfill. We partner with specialised textile agents who source top quality deadstock fabric and on-sell to brands to divert it from landfill. 

GOTS Certified Organic: This is a third party standard that ensures cotton is grown without toxic chemicals, that employees are fairly treated and environmental process are followed. Click here for more info on the Global Orgainic Textiles Standard (GOTS).
