Today, we’ve got a little love story to tell you. It doesn’t have a famously tragic ending (we see you, Romeo and Juliet), and there’s no knight in (ethically-sourced) shining armour saving a damsel in distress. No, the love story today is a fibre love story, and the lucky subject is One Fable.

One Fable is a Byron Bay-based ethical and sustainable company providing beautiful garments and homewares to the dreamers of the world. With the help of talented makers all across the globe, One Fable is driven by its commitment to simplicity and natural beauty, and the exquisite goods produced under the One Fable name are a testament to this. They are, in their own words, “always creating with love, intention, and respect for both fibre, and those who work with it around the globe”, and we are so here for it.

Illumine, one of two collections available to purchase on the One Fable online store, showcases a wardrobe of pieces designed with timeless silhouettes in luxe and sustainable fibres. The collection is designed in Byron Bay and produced in Bali by a small, women-led team (that’s what we love to hear), and the pieces emanate with the happiness and positivity exuded by every person in the garment’s supply chain.

The second collection, KALA, is a seed-to-garment range, which essentially means exactly that: that every piece in the collection can be traced from the seed to the final garment. This collection pays homage to the incredible artisan craftsmanship so obvious in every one of the garments; garments that are hand-made either in the One Fable Byron Bay studio or with a women-led team (again, that’s what we love to hear) in India. 

Oh, and just because we weren’t already impressed enough (total lie), in order to bring to life the exclusive range of cotton fabrications for the KALA range, One Fable worked with organic farmers and traditional weavers in the Kutch region of India. Impressed quota = exceeded.

As well as clothing, One Fable also offers lifestyle pieces including cotton throws, hand-crafted plates, cushions of your beige cotton dreams, cotton journals, and totes, and as a lot of their pieces do not make it onto the online store, there is even the option of visiting them in store at their Bungalow Studio. So, next time you’re near Byron Bay, pop in and say hello to the incredible One Fable team, and run your freshly sanitised hands along all of their dreamy pieces. 

The One Fable love story is one for the ages, and every One Fable item, from the tops to the throws, will last you through the ages, too.

One Fable
“One Fable was actually my graduate project, which evolved beyond the original small collection and documentary it began as, into a sustainable lifestyle brand with a strong focus on process and fabric. My husband and I lived with Artisans in India for 6 months in 2014, learning and building the business from the ground up…literally. My passion really begins at the source of fabric; the plants, animals, and people who create them”.
