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.

End of Life
Help extend the life of the A.34 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.34 was specifically designed for easy mechanical recycling and this is our 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.
