Made for good.

Cloth & Co. is an Australian fashion company ethically and sustainably crafting comfortable, versatile and timeless basics, though there is absolutely nothing basic about this incredible company. The Cloth & Co. team understands how detrimental the conventional fashion industry is to both the environment and garment workers, which is why they are doing absolutely everything in their power to change this narrative. 

Take a look for yourself:

Empowerment

Cloth & Co. is proud to partner with artisan communities in India to craft their beautiful garments, with a specific focus on empowering women and marginalised communities. Through the partnerships developed and the relationships formed, Cloth & Co. aims to empower the artisans who bring their clothing to life by preserving traditional crafts and bringing consistent work and fair wages to these communities and, in turn, to help them become financially independent.

Ethics

Supporting artisans is at the core of Cloth & Co.’s processes, and this is obvious in their (freely available to read) Standard for Working with Artisans. Cloth & Co. does not make use of child labour in any form, nor forced or comulsory labour, and all artisans work in a healthy and safe environment. The workplace is abuse and discrimination-free, meets industry standards in regards to working hours, breaks, public holidays and overtime, and all artisans receive a living wage. Music to our ears.

Fabrics 

Cloth & Co. does everything sustainably and the way in which they source their fabric of choice, GOTS certified organic cotton, is no different. Organic cotton farming involves using untreated, non-GMO seeds, makes use of frequent crop rotations for healthy soil, encourages biological diversity for a natural pest control, and is guided by the principle of the farmer working with the land rather than against it, and as for the manufacturing, organic clothing manufacturers do not use inauthentic materials, chlorine bleaches or formaldehyde.

Practices

Cloth & Co also takes as many steps as necessary to reduce their negative environmental impact by minimising waste and reducing their energy and water consumption wherever possible. They’re also dedicated to achieving a net-zero carbon commission reduction, are working to achieve zero-waste production, and only use OEKO-TEX certified dyes.

Oh, and just when we thought we couldn’t love Cloth & Co. any more, they tell us that they have partnered with Ecologi – an organisation working with The Eden Reforestation Projects – to plant one tree for every purchase. 

Cloth & Co. is completely focused on ethical production by preserving traditional crafts, ensuring positive impacts on people and the environment, and by providing living wages to the incredibly talented artisans who bring the Cloth & Co. garments to life. Through the use of natural materials, a sustainable business model, and ethical sourcing and supply chain management, Cloth & Co. is most certainly helping to set Tomorrow’s Standard in what it means to do good business.
