Featuring genuine corozo buttons under the hidden placket, it's as nice to make as it is to wear.

Product Story

Make

Description

The A.05 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 have also been approved by Ethical Clothing Australia.

Fabric

Description

100% GOTS certified organic linen, grown in France by a group of farmers who have dedicated the last 10 years to perfecting the art of organic linen farming. Scutching is performed locally, fibres are then sent to Hungary to be spun into yarn. Finally, they are sent to Belgium, where they’re woven in a C02 neutral mill and whitened with GOTS certified low-impact oxygen whiteners. Our Belgian supplier has been creating linen since 1864 and are recognised by The Masters of Linen.
