Product Story

Make

Description

The A.06 was made by the good people at our local factory in Coburg, a suburb in Melbourne’s inner north. They digitised our patterns, cut the fabric with minimal waste, constructed the piece, pressed it and trimmed it for excess threads. They are also approved by Ethical Clothing Australia.

Fabric

Description

100% certified organic raw cotton denim. The fibre is grown, spun and yarn dyed in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra in India, where it’s certified by the Global Organic textile Standard (GOTS) to meet strict environmental, toxicity and social standards. The yarns are then delivered to GOTS certified mills in Gujarat. We buy the finished fabric from an Indian textile wholesaler based in Ahmedabad, which sources directly from the mills.

Label

Description

100% recycled polyester made in-house by a manufacturer with a passion for developing sustainable alternatives for brands. This is the only part of the garment that isn’t biodegradable.

Packaging

Compost

Our default packaging for local orders, home-compostable satchels have the lowest environmental impact when composted locally. Please don't throw this into your general waste bin, instead, after re-use, compost at home or find other solutions here. You can contact us immediately after placing your order to request recyclable packing instead.

 

Recycled

For extra fragile goods, or international orders, we use 100% post-consumer waste recycled and RECYCLABLE satchels, boxes and tissue paper. After re-use, these can go into your curb-side paper recycling bin. 

Care

Laundering

Organic fibres need just a little more TLC than conventional ones. Machine wash on COLD, use a delicates bag for best results and hang to dry. We'll also send a detailed digital care guide when you buy this garment.

 

Repairs

We stand by our garments + offer complimentary repairs for all A.BCH pieces. Our free repairs are for general wear and tear, all we ask is that you cover the cost of delivery or drop off to our Melbourne studio. Re-making or alterations can also be requested + will be individually quoted based on the time required.

End of Life

Recycling

To recycle the tote, send it back to us for store credit. We'll even cover shipping! Depending on its condition, we'll repair & re-sell it (as second hand) OR transform it into brand new yarns through our recycling program (so circular, darling).

 

Compost

If returning is unlikely (you're busy with a climate rally or living off the grid), this bag is 99.5% compostable. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply remove the A.BCH tag before cutting the rest of it tee into strips, safe for anaerobic composting at home or commercially.
