The start of a journey
Living organic has always been important for us. So when we came across the recycled and organic products we instantly felt like we needed to do something with it. We started researching the clothing industry and what we read both frightened but motivated us. Did you for example know that it takes up to 2700 liter of water to make one t-shirt? That's enough for one person to drink for 900 days! Pretty scary. 95% of the water used for our organic t-shirts come from the monsoon rain fall and has a 90% reduction on the carbon footprint. This is worth sharing!
We are located in both Sweden and Australia and are always open to collaborate with other designers or creative people. Let's work together for a fair and eco-friendly world.
Thanks for choosing us!

The production process of our organic clothing
Our organic products are ethically made and most importantly manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power. The garments are made in manufacturing facilities in India powered by wind turbines, from low impact organic cotton under the Global Organic Textile Standard (G.O.T.S) and certified by the Soil Association (UK). G.O.T.S covers the production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, export, import and distribution to ensure that no harm has been done during the whole process.
The production process of our recycled clothing
Our recycled products are certified in accordance with the Global Recycled Standard and the Organic Content Standard by Control Union Certifications, licence CU 828402. In other words, this means that the whole supply chain has been checked and reports traceability, environmental principles, social requirements and labelling. This also means that the traceability and integrity of the raw materials during all the manufacturing stages has been checked. The GRS ensures accurate content claims, good working conditions, and that harmful environmental and chemical impacts are minimized.
