- Questions about the A.06? Ask us.
The A.06 was made by the good people at our local factory in Coburg, a suburb in Melbourne’s inner north. They digitised our patterns, cut the fabric with minimal waste, constructed the piece, pressed it and trimmed it for excess threads. They are also approved by Ethical Clothing Australia.
100% certified organic raw cotton denim. The fibre is grown, spun and yarn dyed in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra in India, where it’s certified by the Global Organic textile Standard (GOTS) to meet strict environmental, toxicity and social standards. The yarns are then delivered to GOTS certified mills in Gujarat. We buy the finished fabric from an Indian textile wholesaler based in Ahmedabad, which sources directly from the mills.
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% GOTS certified poplin fabric. The fibres are gown, processed, spun and woven in India. We import the fabric directly from the mill then send it to New York Binding in Victoria where it’s pre-cut and folded into strips.
The A.06 is screen printed locally in Melbourne. We use an Australian owned company who specialise in small orders to create our limited runs and who are approved by Ethical Clothing Australia. The inks used are water based and do not contain plastisol, which is a common oil based ink used in screen printing.
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!
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.06 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.06 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.06 is also biodegradable. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply cut off the A.BCH tag (not biodegradable) before cutting the rest of the bag into smaller pieces and burying in your garden soil. The A.01 should biodegrade entirely within 4-8 weeks, depending on conditions.
