Label

Description

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. There's good news! In 2019 we developed a way to make these labels in organic cotton which feature in garments from A.31 onwards.

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. Wash before wear with like/dark colours to remove any excess dye. Machine wash on COLD and use a delicates bag for best results. Always hang to dry. We'll send you a more detailed digital care guide via email when you buy this garment.

 

Repairs

We stand by our garments and offer complimentary repairs for all A.BCH pieces. Our free repairs are for general wear and tear (you'll just have to cover delivery or drop off to our Melbourne studio, the cleaner the better)! Re-making or alterations will be individually quoted, at a reasonable charge.

End of Life

Recirculate

Help extend the life of the A.04 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).

 

Recycle

With minor decommissioning, the A.04 was specifically designed to be easily recycled, either mechanically or cellulose-chemically. Send or drop it back to us for store credit, we'll even cover 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.

 

Biodegrade

The A.04 requires minor decommissioning (including removal of the collar and A.BCH A.04 label) before being ready to biodegrade. Also, while the cellulose buttons are biodegradable, we would opt for re-use unless they are broken. We highly recommend sending this piece back to us so we can appropriately recycle it however as a last resort, this garment can be self-decommissioned, cut into smaller pieces and buried in your garden soil. The A.04 should biodegrade within 4-8 weeks, depending on conditions, noting buttons may take longer to decompose.
