Purpose-driven, sustainable, ethical and circular slow fashion brand madre natura is a Sydney-based company both crafting and designing with an optimistic outlook on the Australian fashion industry. 

Utilising crisp, subtle trims, quality and durable fabrics and natural and earthy colour palette, madre natura’s gender-neutral designs are a credit to the ethical and sustainable fashion movement. 

Meaning “Mother Nature” in Italian, madre natura was born from a desire to respect the earth, as well as “with the belief that love and respect for the environment are equally important as self-love and respect for the people around us.” 

When looking at the processes the madre natura team has put in place, it’s obvious that they’re not just talking the talk. See for yourself:

Slow and sustainable fashion

madre natura is on a mission to create garments that do less harm to the people and the planet, and this is obvious in their commitment to slow and sustainable fashion. Through timeless designs, small and limited runs, high-quality fabrics and finishes, certified and natural materials – including GOTS organic cotton, Tencel and biodegradable fibres – and deadstock fabrics, madre natura is doing what they set out to. Social Responsibility Projects are also in the works, so stay tuned!

Ethical

In order to be sustainable, a brand must be ethical, and madre natura totally gets this. No surprises there. This company operates with complete transparency and provides a safe, fair, positive working environment for their Sydney employees. You can even get to know them – including Pattern Maker Alicia and Garment Cutter Carlos – via madre’s website. How’s that for transparency?

Circular

Madre natura also operates with a circular fashion system in mind, from the time the garments are created to the time their wearers no longer have need for them. Aside from providing purchasers with a care manual in an attempt to prolong the life of the garment and offering lifetime mending, madre natura also takes back any unwanted or unmendable clothing to reprocess it back into fabric. Their goal is to prolong the life of their garments and keep them out of landfill and, if we do say so ourselves, they’re doing a mighty fine job of it.

An ethical, sustainable, slow and circular mode of fashion production is at the core of madre natura’s vision, and their limited runs, use of certified and deadstock fabrics, transparency and conscious design are a testament to this. If you’ve been looking for a responsible Australian ethical fashion label to support, look no further than madre natura’s gender-neutral designs.

“It's been a dream of mine since I can remember, and I knew if I started something it had to be purpose-driven. As my love for nature and people are a part of my DNA”.
