Hansen & Gretel is acutely aware of the impact the fashion industry has on our planet and it’s people. They are passionately committed to driving change and believe in conscious creation. They strive to deliver collections that pioneer sustainability and make a concerted effort to integrate sustainable practices in every aspect of the business — not only in regards to materials and production, but also in the day-to-day operational mindset and business structure. The duty to mitigate Hansen & Gretels environmental impact and initiate positive social change grows in importance every day.
Hansen & Gretel strongly focus on using natural fibres wherever possible and are proud to be utilising environmentally accredited fabrications such as Tencel, FSC Viscose, Linen, Organic cotton and Recycled Polyester linings within the ranges. Striving to consciously create “forever” pieces for customers and to design and manufacture within the seven parameters that Green Strategy have devised to define sustainable fashion. There is no warehouses of excess stock they endeavour to create minimal waste with every collection by working closely with the factories. Fabrics are sourced with the OKEO-TEX Certification and avoid harmful dyeing methods. Placement prints are avoided which create vast amounts of fabric wastage, instead producing garments with repeating prints, making each garment a one-of-a-kind Hansen & Gretel piece.
Hansen began using biodegradable plastic in 2018 and in 2020 aim to eliminate the use of plastic all together by implementing canvas garment bags for stock to be delivered in. Orders are packaged using only 100% recycled and biodegradable materials.
We are proud to stock Hansen & Gretel as well as many other amazing Australian Labels that stride for sustainability as much as possible when it comes to creating fashion.
