Cotton FABRIC has been crafted in Prato, Italy.

The specialty mill we work with in Melbourne is over 100 years old. It produces rare, one-of-a-kind knits with specialty machinery.

For the cotton, our Italian partners apply the '4sustainability protocol' which is a protocol set up to hold mills accountable for their reduction of hazardous chemicals within the production process.

The raw materials of this viscose yarn are made from FSC-certified forestry using ENKA viscose yarn. The yarn is then knitted in Melbourne and the garment is cut, made, and finished in Sydney.
