The A.44 is made in-house at the A.BCH circular factory or with our partner factory a few suburbs away. The energy used to make this tank is from 100% renewable wind power and is additionally carbon offset. The fabric is laid and cut with minimal waste and offcuts are salvaged for future uses and recycling. The pieces are then constructed by our team of skilled machinists using circular trims and industrial waste recovery processes. Each garment is quality checked, trimmed and pressed before being sent to you. Our operations are accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia.
100% certified organic cotton 325gm, 1x1 rib. The fibre is grown, processed and spun into yarns in India and then shipped to our local knitting mill. Here the yarn is knitted in one of Australia's last knitting mills before being dyed using low-impact fibre reactive dyes at a local dye house.
100% Tencel Lyocell, made from eucalyptus tree pulp, which is also FSC and Canopy verified. The fibre is created by Lenzing in Austria before being sent to Portugal for spinning into strong sewing threads. When combined with adapted stitching techniques, this thread is incredibly strong and durable, and the colourfast nature of Tencel means it will hold its colour over time and washes. Best of all, this thread (unlike industry standard polyester) is certified biodegradable in land and marine environments.
Our Australian based trim supplier INGWE works directly with Hong Kong based supplier Oletta Limited. Our labels are woven in un-dyed and black GOTS certified organic cotton, certified by Control Union. The cotton is grown in the Xinjiang province, then spun and woven in Pingdingshan, a prefecture-level city in central Henan province, China.
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. Re-making or alterations can also be requested + will be individually quoted based on the time required.
End of Life
Help extend the life of the A.44 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.44 was specifically designed for easy 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.44 is also biodegradable as a last resort. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply cut the skivvy into smaller pieces and bury in your garden soil. The A.44 should biodegrade entirely within 4-8 weeks, depending on conditions.
