Description

Denim, like cookie dough, is best served raw. Un-washed and untreated to minimise industrial water usage, the signature shorts are a structured cut with a paper bag style waist, mock fly front and real (deep) pockets. Featuring contrast stitching and an A.16 label sitting proudly on the rear left. Wash before wear to avoid dye transfer.

Worn with A.15 t-shirt

Product Story

Make

Description

The A.16 was made entirely in-house by the A.BCH team at our HQ in Fitzroy North. We cut the fabric with minimal waste, constructed the piece, pressed it and trimmed it for excess threads.

Fabric

Description

100% certified organic raw cotton denim (11.5oz). 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.

Elastic

Description

Our elastic is pretty amazing. It's been created from biodegradable polymers by a German innovator and manufacturer. The technology was developed to replace traditionally synthetic building blocks (like elastic and labels) and is certified by C2C, plus it's been recognised for its innovation in sustainability and circular design.

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.

Care Label

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.

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. 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.

 

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. Re-making or alterations can also be requested + will be individually quoted based on the time required.

End of Life

Recycling

To recycle this garment, send it back to us for store credit. We'll even cover shipping! Depending on its condition, we'll repair & re-sell it (as second hand) OR transform it into brand new yarns through our recycling program (so circular, darling).

 

Compost

If returning is unlikely (you're busy with a climate rally or living off the grid), these shorties are 99.5% compostable. After a long life of use, repair and re-use, simply remove the A.BCH tag before cutting the rest into smaller pieces - it's then safe for anaerobic composting at home or commercially.
