Description

The Cutpiece Baby T-Shirt is created from the selvedges and offcuts of our popular A.34 merino thermals (which are first created from surplus mill rolls). In order to honour the precious material of wool, we keep every single leftover scrap from the cutting process, which we then sort by size and colour palette. We hand place and stitch new textiles from these precious resources.

We call this textile production method 'Cutpiece' – a regenerated textile that is entirely unique to the individual garment and owner. Commissions for this style are welcome, as are customisation requests.

Product Story

Make

Description

The A.CBT is made to order, in-house at the A.BCH circular factory. Our entire production and HQ operations rely on 100% renewable wind power and we carbon offset our energy use. Your fabric is first created by hand before being laid and cut with minimal waste (however all new waste can go back into this very process). Pieces are then sewn by our team of skilled machinists. Each garment is quality checked and pressed before being sent to you. Our operations are accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia.

Fabric

Description

100% Cutpiece from merino rib (mill surplus). This wool was originally grown and blended from ten farms from around Victoria and New South Wales in Australia. The wool fibre was purchased and combined by Fox & Lille Wool Brokers before being sent to Xin’ao in China to be processed and spun.  Farms, broker and spinner are Responsible Wool Standard certified. These yarns are kept seperate from other wool, ensuring traceability from farm to product. Spun yarns were sent back to Victoria to our mill, MTK who knitted and dyed the fabrics locally. These fabrics were end of roll, mill surplus used to created the A.34 thermal style. We regenerate a new textile from the offcuts to create 'Cutpiece' a unique production process for working with offcuts.

Help extend the life of A.CBT 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).

A.CBT was specifically designed for easy mechanical recycling and this is the preferred afterlife pathway. Send or drop it back to us for store credit, we'll even cover the shipping.
