Whole Garment knitted sweater, made locally from Japanese mineral dyed, organic cotton yarns. Featuring an oversized design for a soft and flattering drape, this trans-seasonal sweater has a 3/4 sleeve, relaxed neckline and is finished with a light rib trim on the collar, sleeves and hem. This sweater tee is completely seamless which makes it incredibly comfortable. The A.13 is knitted in Australia from vegan materials on the latest Shima Seiki Whole Garment knitting machine and is certified by Ethical Clothing Australia.

Our yarns are OCS (Organic Content Standard) certified organic cotton. The dyes used on these organic yarns are all sourced from varying natural minerals and the result is a beautiful marle effect without the use of toxic chemicals.

Product Story

Knit

Description

The A.13 was knitted using the latest technology in Whole Garment knitting. The Japanese Shima Seiki machine is considered the best in the world and is the only one in Australia. The design was programmed and the knitting was supervised by our knitting specialist, Patricia Chircop who is based in Mount Macedon, Victoria. Her company is certified as an approved supplier for A.BCH by Ethical Clothing Australia. Because of this innovative Whole Garment knitting technology, the A.13 garment is knitted together in 3D, eliminating pattern paper and fabric cutting waste.

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. Our goal is to someday soon make our own biodegradable woven labels, but until that glorious day, please remove this tag before composting!

Care Label

Description

100% cotton. Although it’s a lot better for the environment than the industry standard virgin polyester, it’s not organic, so it’s just a temporary solution for us. We’re working towards having our own organic cotton care labels too.
