Earth First

We believe it's important to take our environmental care values into everything we do, including how we package and send your items.

The glorious little black bags that we sent everything out in are created by Better Packaging Co. and are 100% biodegradable. The New Zealand based, Australian made brand are inspired to minimise the impact the eCommerce industry has on our planet.

These 'real dirt bags' are made from sustainable plants and non-toxic compostable resin. They are designed for home compost bins and garden waste, and if you don't have either of those at your home you can try your local composting network.

The combination of materials used to create these bags represents a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to traditional plastics, and is non-toxic with no Phthalate or Bisphenol A (BPA).

We love using the comPOST bags to send your orders and support such an important and valued brand. The Better Packaging Co. dedicate 10% of all profits to the protection of our environment through channels such as research, environmental clean-ups, education and fundraising - creating a greater shift towards environmental packaging.

All of are garments are delivered to our studio in compressed biodegradable bags. These are earth friendly with no petrochemicals, made from cassava starch and other renewable resources which will breakdown in a matter of months - making every material you receive your sustainable fashion in recyclable or compostable.

Our Digital Printing Process

We used Okeo-Tex Passport certified inks to digitally print these garments onto beautiful linen and cotton ramie fabrics. Eco Passport is an independent certification system for chemicals, colourants and auxiliaries used in the textile industry. During a multistep process, Okeo-Tex analyse whether each individual ingredient in the chemical product meets the requirements, and that it is not harmful to human health. Both brands and manufacturers value the Eco Passport as credible proof of sustainable textile production.
