Article: Fashion Revolution 2022 - Who Made My Fabric & My Clothes?

Fashion Revolution 2022 - Who Made My Fabric & My Clothes?

It's Fashion Revolution Week - an initiative that has us as brands and consumers ask the question - "Who made my clothes?" As a brand that believes in the ethical making of garments we like to work with small family run businesses that we know and trust.

 Fashion Revolution Week 2022 is in honour of the thousands of workers who were killed, injured or orphaned in the Rana Plaza Factory collapse in Bangladesh in 2013. This devastating incident sparked a revolution of awareness and change.

We need to become stewards of clothes: to know where and how they are made, from what they are made and where they go when we shed them. 
Be curious. Find out. Do something. Love the clothes you already own because they are the most sustainable option. And share your fashion love story with @fash_rev_ausnz  this Fashion Revolution Week April 18-24.

We love the clothes we make here and we love to hear your fabulous stories of how long you've had our garments and where you've worn them and why they're a favourite in your wardrobe. Ethical, local & sustainable... Naturally!!

We're proud to employ local people who are like family to us & are a great team. All our fabrics and garments are made in Australia creating jobs, supporting local businesses and communities. Our factory is open to the public in Brisbane and if you're in the area, you're more than welcome to come and have a look behind the seams.

Fashion revolution 2021 who made my clothes

This year the campaign is looking at "Who made your fabric" and we can proudly say - WE DID! Our 100% Australian Merino fabric is unique to us as we developed a special knit that is 100% Merino, is strong, soft to touch and easy care.

We start with choosing the raw product and know exactly which farm in Australia it has come from and what we are getting before it is even turned into yarn. The quality and specifications of the raw wool makes a big difference to the end product. Our Merino is grown locally by Australian Farmers who have the welfare of their sheep at heart and we choose to use wool from Un-Mulesed Sheep. 

Our fabric is knitted to our unique specifications right here in Australia by our fabulous knitters in Melbourne who we have been working with for many - their knowledge and expertise is invaluable.

Locally made Merino Fabric

Our Australian Knitter - Circular Knitting Machines for our Merino Jersey Fabric. 

Once our fabric is knitted to our specifications it goes to another family run business in Melbourne to be dyed & finished. This is a very important part of the process as different dying and finishing processes can change the whole feel and performance of the fabric.

Our dyehouse has perfected our specifications & requirements over the years to get a unique finish that optimises the performance of our fabric and makes our fabric right for our products, in particular our WUNDIES!

Have never been able to wear wool
These garments are life changing
They feel like silk to put on

Bought one of your tops in 2020. I absolutely love it, treat it with great care, the quality is beautiful, and I so love finding Australian-made quality clothing again. Next purchase will be some of your lovely pants for the winter, and also some of your insoles, and I love the caps with the sheep and windmill. Thank you so much.

About 6 years ago I was looking for a company that had merino wool underwear. I tried a few places that were closer to me first but their product wasn’t comfortable. I am thrilled to have found you! I live in the USA and at first was wondering if it made sense to send half way around the globe for undies; it seemed a bit unreasonable to have to purchase underwear from so far away! I sure am glad I decided to! Your Wundies are THE BEST. I am very grateful for them. They are super comfortable, well made, and durable. I have been wearing your Wundies everyday since I received them and ordered more colors. This year I tried your socks. Fantastic! Thank you!!!

Hi Kerrie, We’ve got heaps of your products and I’ve just sent gifts to my nephew who now has 3 of your shirts and just loves them and will end up with a lot more of your products. Your should be aware of much your customers appreciate you and your Merino! I placed three different orders to go to three different addresses and all parcels received and accounted for. I’m always amazed at how quick they are to arrive. I’m thrilled to the gills with all of them. Thankyou. Bourkie

I just love the feel of the fabric. You just wouldn’t think it was Merino wool. My hubby is very happy with “Wundies”
Thank you
