Where do you get your fabric from?
We have a large network of suppliers, however it really depends on the fabric type required. As each of our pieces are released in limited numbers or via pre-order only, this enables us to source small quantities of unique remnant (or 'deadstock') fabrics from high-end Italian and Japanese designers. This helps to put a use to fabrics that would otherwise be going to waste. A lot of these are already based in Australia, which reduces our carbon footprint.
Believe it or not, buying high-end remnant fabric is actually a much more expensive option than purchasing bulk from a large-scale Agent but the quality is much better (as with most things in life).
We also design exclusive prints or support local artists and have fabric printed to order (using environmentally-friendly NeoPigment™ dyes) through fabric mills in South Korea, USA and the United Kingdom. This too minimises wastage because we only purchase the amount of fabric we need. The reason we don't get fabric printed in Australia is because of the minimum lengths required. We have estimated that our carbon footprint from flying printed fabric into Australia is less damaging than the waste of printing more fabric than we need.
We also collect any leftover scraps from the cutting room floor and use these for a multitude of purposes, including fabric swatches and wrapping gifts.
