Ethical Clothing Accreditation

 

Moral Fibre ...the quality of being determined to do what you think is right. 

We know it's right and fair that conscious shopping must include knowing where your purchases are made and if they're are made under ethical conditions. 

While we wish to keep our pricing affordable we will not do it at the expense of a factory or 'sweatshop' worker in any country.

We have sourced products through a manufacturer in Melbourne, a company that was established in 1985 and is proud of their Australian owned and operated business that provides merchandise, manufactured and decorated with minimum impact to our environment.

We design our look, choose bio-degradable inks and they ethically source fabrics from reputable companies that are produced under morally sound conditions that strictly comply with their accreditation.  These certificates are issued by the Ethical Clothing Australia. Our manufacturer has been accredited since 2006 and continues to be accountable for all production. 

Our new organics range of men's and women's t-shirts are Certified Organic by The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
