Our signature pullover sweatshirt constructed from GOTS organic french terry. The cut is relaxed through the neckline and width, coupled with a raw, wrist-bone length sleeve, perfect for layering.
Also available in Grey.
The A.09 is made both in-house and by the good people at our local factory in Coburg, a suburb in Melbourne’s inner north. The sweater is cut with minimal waste, constructed, pressed and trimmed. Both A.BCH and 10 Stitches are Ethical Clothing Australia accredited.
100% GOTS certified, organic cotton french terry. The fibre is grown, processed and spun in India, and is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) at every stage from processing to finishing to meet strict environmental, toxicity and social standards. The yarns are knitted and then dyed by one of the last remaining knitting mills in Australia, located just outside of Melbourne.
100% GOTS certified cotton, sourced from co-operative organic markets in the Middle East. Each of these small-holder farmers process their cotton to strict environmental and social standards- as is required by GOTS certification.
100% recycled PET 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. Things get better! In 2019 we developed an organic cotton alternative, a first of its kind on the market. From A.31 onwards, all garments will be 100% cellulosic (AKA synthetic-free!)!
100% organic cotton, printed with Oeko Tex 100 certified inks. The yarns are sourced in India from GOTS certified mills and are woven at our supplier-owned mill into tape. They are then whitened according to GOTS standards using oxygen based whiteners and digitally printed.
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.
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.
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.
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 and that you launder the garment before sending. Re-making or alterations can also be requested + will be individually quoted based on the time required.
Help extend the life of the A.09 by sending or dropping it back to us for store credit – we'll even cover the shipping. Depending on its condition, we'll repair & re-sell it (as second hand), remake it into something or if it's no longer useful, we'll transform it into brand new yarns through our Recycling Program (so circular, darling).
The A.09 was specifically designed for mechanical or cellulose chemical recycling. Send or drop it back to us for store credit, we'll even cover the shipping. Once received and assessed, the garment is washed and prepared for mechanical recycling. The yarns we create from this process will become feedstock for future A.BCH styles.
If returning is unlikely (you're busy with a climate rally or living off the grid), the A.09 is also biodegradable. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply cut off the A.BCH A.09 tag (not biodegradable) before cutting the rest of the garment into smaller pieces and burying in your garden soil. The A.09 should biodegrade entirely within 4-8 weeks, depending on conditions.

We believe every body should be able to wear A.BCH.
Bodies come in all shapes, forms and sizes that often fall outside a "conventional" sizing range.
That’s why in addition to ready-to-wear, we can alter or customise most A.BCH garments to meet your needs. From simple alterations like wider waists, longer hems, or more complex custom fits for your smokin' hot bod. Book a consultation here, or contact us with any questions.
Alternatively, choose size 'C' (for Custom) on any available product and we'll be in touch to find out the details.
