A NOTE ON SUSTAINABILITY

Leading from the top, Kerrie is a passionate environmentalist and continually works to create a sustainable business.

Our goal is to create a proactive approach to sourcing and providing sustainable textiles.

We produce products by demand - which allows us to minimise waste. We don’t have warehouses of excess stock or waste going to landfill.

Australian Owned

Our business is 100% Australian owned and we work with like mind small and family businesses and suppliers to encourage responsible environmental practice.

Water based Inks

Our printing inks are water-soluble - we do not use polluting chemicals in our printing. We don’t use harsh chemicals that are detrimental to the environment in any part of our process.

Fabrics

Advancements are being made in recycling techniques of fabrics. We offer natural fabrics and polyester and look forward to growing our capability in minimizing the impact textiles have on our planet. We work with Australian recycling businesses to ensure off cuts are recycled responsibly.
