Description

Created as a development project from the fab fleecy offcuts of the A.33 + A.37. Uniform, short, yet medium widths of "negative space" were leftover from the cutting process, but with material so thick, and so fluffy on one side, we couldn't say a negative thing about it.

Our designer was keen to avoid a "patch-work" look for this project and set out to develop an elegant bucket hat that could utilise the offcuts while nodding to the traditional craft of quilting. The finish is clean and modern with tonal, monomaterial stitching in the hat body. Lined with calico made from 80% cotton and 20% recycled cotton to continue themes of mono-materiality, undyed and unwasted.

This piece is made to order, please allow 2 weeks to complete.

Product Story

Make

Description

The Quilted Bucket Hat is made in-house at the A.BCH circular factory. Our factory and HQ operate on 100% renewable wind power and we carbon offset our energy use. The fabric is re-claimed from the offcuts of our fleecy range, where short, medium width pieces of material are leftover. We first quilt these offcuts onto our calico backing, then we cut our pattern pieces and construct the piece. This hat is produced one-by-one, each one is cut and made individually and will have elements of individuality such as quilting placement, from piece to piece. Our operations are accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia.

Fabric

Description

Offcuts from 100% certified organic cotton that's brushed on the inside to a soft and super fluffy fleece. 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. Fabric is then scoured and left totally undyed to retain the natural colour of the cotton fibre.

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. Hand wash in COLD water using a laundry bar or gentle eco-friendly detergents (check that there is no added bleach in your laundry detergents as these may discolour the bag). Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry or dry-clean. We'll send a detailed digital care guide when you buy this piece.

 

Repairs

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 and that you launder your piece prior to drop off. Re-making or alterations can also be requested + will be individually quoted based on the time required.

End of Life

Recirculate

Help extend the life of the Quilted Bucket Hat 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

The Quilted Bucket Hat was specifically designed for easy mechanical or cellulose chemical recycling. Send or drop it back to us for store credit, we'll even pay for shipping. Once received and assessed, the piece is washed and prepared for mechanical recycling. The yarns we create from this process will become feedstock for future A.BCH styles.

 

Compost

If returning is unlikely (you're busy with a climate rally or living off the grid), the A.QBH is compostable. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply cut the garment into smaller pieces and add to your home composting system or garden soil.
