A LETTER FROM THE DESIGNER
Dear conscious shopper,
This company has been birthed through the desire of course correcting the fashion industry.
It yearns to inspire change, as well as it demands restoration, revolution, and authenticity within the industry and within ourselves.
Myself and those who I partner with intend to leave this planet better than we found it. We strive for lasting impact socially and environmentally. It is a tireless process to source materials that meet this high standard in a diligent effort to protect our land, water, air, wildlife, and fellow human beings.
I aim for full transparency, and I urge you to not only ask questions, but to challenge me if my content is ever out of line with my mission (I am only human, and I am always learning).
Thank you for joining me in this journey of unlearning cultural conditioning, and in honoring these intrinsic values which we are too often told to ignore.
*SYDNEY ORIGINATES FROM KENTUCKY, USA. SHE RECEIVED HER BFA IN FASHION DESIGN AT O'MORE COLLEGE OF DESIGN IN FRANKLIN, TN.
HER STUDIO SPACE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN BRISBANE, AU, WHERE GARMENT DESIGN AND PRODUCTION IS A ONE WOMAN OPERATION.
NATURAL FIBERS SUSTAINABLY SOURCED
"Each Lenzing fiber is made of cellulose, a natural component of our renewable source material wood. A characteristic of cellulose is its biodegradability: At the end of their life cycle, our fibers can re-enter the eco-system, preparing the ground on which new plants grow. This miracle of nature is our inspiration."
Based in Indonesia, Zalmon Fabric prioritises reducing their environmental impact, ethical treatment of employees, and giving back to their community.
Every inch of their textile composed of 100% natural fibers, as well as they use Inkjet Printing technology to drastically reduce on water wastage.
"All of Zalmon family members are 100% local from Indonesia. We craft a supply chain that focuses on the needs of each Zalmon family member, giving training and economic empowerment along the way."
FABRICS THAT FEEL GOOD
ON YOUR BODY AND ON YOUR CONSCIENCE
THE MICRO BATCH PLANT DYE RANGE
A MODERN INTERPRETATION OF TRADITIONAL TEXTILE DYEING
Each piece from the plant dyed range has been micro batch dyed by hand slowly and lovingly on my home stovetop.
The current selection of garments available utilizes locally sourced food waste as its main source of pigmentation. The Pigment extraction process is a gentle balance of heat and time, which when added to specially pretreated textile produces a beautiful range of colour.
Avocado, a producer of pink and tan shades, is my muse at the moment, and the star source of dye in the current collection.
