Tasi Travels - Sustainability is at the heart of the Tasi brand. All pieces are made to order, so they aren't sitting on any stock, which means there is no wastage.
Their primary fabric is a beautiful textile called tencel, and one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics available. All Tasi orders are shipped plastic free and they have also partnered with Carbon Neutral to plant one tree for every item sold!
The entire Tasi collection is designed and produced in Australia, supporting local industry and local businesses, whilst lowering their contribution to fossil fuels. A core part of the Tasi ethos is minimalism; less but better. Operating under a slow fashion model, not releasing styles seasonally like most fashion brands.
Tasi replaces the need to consume, simply by making clothes that last.

This is Loveland
The material that makes up the fabric of Loveland's pieces comes from post-consumer nylon waste, including discarded fishing nets from the ocean.

Loveland produce their pieces in Indonesia at an eco-friendly factory, where the workers have a clean, fun working environment, access to health care & are paid above minimum wage. To prove this the factor is completely open to the public, promoting 100% transparency.
