Latest Ethical Brands
The ANJELMS Project
We’ve been doing this thing for a while; the sifting through of companies in order to find the big fat (ethically and sustainably minded) gems. Well, when we were sifting recently, we came across The ANJELMS Project, and we may have hit the motherload. Social responsibility, sustainable practices, uniqueness, community, and quality are the pillars by which this incredible company is supported, and it’s just an added bonus that their garments are as absolutely beautiful as the company’s mindset.find out more
Bird and Kite
Bird + Kite is an ethical clothing company based in Bali, though they operate with purpose. Their clothing is manufactured with a family run business with which the team have a close personal relationship, as placing a high amount of value on these relationships is essential in Balinese society. There is no child, forced or underage labour in Bird + Kite’s supply chain, no harassment or abuse, no plastic, and an intense support of and high respect for Balinese culture.find out more

Behind the Brand
We talk dreams, to-do lists, and creative processes with The ANJELMS Project founder, Gaelle Beech.
Gaelle seemed to have the fashion career crafted from dreams: she worked in various different roles in the industry and had won a national competition from her previous place of work, Ralph Lauren. Despite this, she could not shake a meeting she’d had with two Balinese women years earlier, so after a very vivid and persuasive dream, Gaelle sketched a few garments, and poof: The ANJELMS Project was born.READ MORE
Giving people jobs is not an excuse to buy fast fashion.
Talking about ethical fashion is hard. When you begin discussing the topic with someone who hasn’t heard of issues in the fashion industry, there’s a point in the conversation when they realise; the problem is them. They are the consumer, they are wearing clothes made by individuals exploited in third world countries, and they are holding the H&M shopping bags.READ MORE
What is a clothing supply chain, and why is it that so many fast fashion companies can’t trace where their products are made?
If you’re relatively new to the ethical fashion space (or not at all new), you’ll have noticed this term popping up a lot. At Ethical Made Easy, we really harp on about it. If you google ‘supply chain’, you’ll get a bunch of information about economics.READ MORE
Behind the Brand
What does growing up off-grid in rural Australia and ethical fashion have in common? Jodi Gibbs, founder of Bird + Kite. That’s what.
An air of powerful femininity, floaty silhouettes, a palette inspired by native landscapes, 1970s nostalgia that leaves you with butterflies. These were just a few things we fell in love with when we first laid eyes on at Bird and Kite’s collection of conscious designs. READ MORE
Four things you should do instead of feeding into the Black Friday and Cyber Monday frenzy.
You know us, we’re all for a great deal (vintage Levi’s at an op shop, for one). In saying this, we believe there’s a fine line between shopping with intent and purpose and shopping for the sake of it, and we think Black Friday and Cyber Monday may have crossed it.READ MORE
Why a higher price point does not mean it’s ethically made.
There are many questions a lot of us ponder, though we know in our heart of hearts we’ll never fully know the answer to. What’s really used in hot dogs? What is the meaning of life? Why did the chicken actually cross the road? Sorry to disappoint, but no, we are no closer to finding out the answers to these questions than you are.READ MORE
What is linen made from, and why do so many people love wearing it?
Let’s talk about linen. You may only be acquainted with this wonder fabric through your favourite Zingara Collection piece, or because that linen tablecloth your grandma gave you when you moved out of home five years ago is still going strong (regardless of the copious amounts of spilled wine).READ MORE
How to have a Greener Christmas.
It’s Christmas Day… The table is set- there’s plastic red and green straws. The tree is lit- there’s tinsel all around it. The presents are wrapped- there are 89 of them. The rubbish bin is full- it’s not even midday yet.READ MORE

We pulled up a chair at RUPAHAUS with Stephanie Chandra.
Growing up in an Indonesian household, Steph always held the Indonesian culture close to her heart, though what pushed her to build a fashion HAUS around it (pun intended)—apart from her deep love and appreciation for the culture—was her desire to preserve it, and to “interlace tradition into stories”.READ MORE
