The A.65 is made entirely in-house at the A.BCH circular factory in Melbourne's inner West. Our entire factory and HQ operations rely on 100% renewable wind power and we carbon offset our energy use. We lay and cut the fabric with minimal waste, while all offcuts are reused in other styles or mechanically recycled back into fabrics. The A.65 is sewn by our team of skilled machinists then trimmed and pressed before being sent to you. Our operations are accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia..
Two fabrics make up the A.15, the main fabric is a mid-weight (145gsm) 100% GOTS + ACO certified organic cotton jersey. The second is a ribbed fabric used for the neck collar. Both have the same growing, processing and dyeing origins, with the only difference being how they are knitted. 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 dyed using GOTS approved low impact dyes and are knitted into fabric at one of the last remaining knitting factories in Australia, located just outside of Melbourne.
100% Tencel Lyocell. Tencel Lyocell is made from eucalyptus tree pulp, which is FSC and Canopy verified. The fibre is created by Lenzing in Austria and is certified carbon neutral. It is then spun and dyed in Portugal. The thread is strong, durable and colourfast and is 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.65 by sending or dropping it back to us for store credit. 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.65 was specifically designed for easy mechanical or cellulose chemical recycling and this is its preferred afterlife pathway. 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.65 is also biodegradable as a last resort. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply cut the garment into smaller pieces and bury in your garden soil. The A.65 should biodegrade entirely within 4-8 weeks, depending on conditions.
