It’s not everyday a brand blatantly exposes their manufacturing costs and revenue. At The Fabric Social, a Melbourne based label that prides on comfortable, edgy wear and ethical transparencies.

The Fabric Social gives ethical job opportunities to women in rural India and to communities in Myanmar. Rather than hiring employees, they seek services from their artisans and form direct partnerships with them. This means the artisans they work with have access to fair working conditions that are environmentally friendly and free from slave labour.

Now for their sustainability practices which involve using biodegradable fabrics, low-waste sewing patterns and non-toxic dyes. Just another thoughtful gesture for conscious fashion.

No chemicals or pesticides are used on their choice of crops, and the Eri-silk or “peace silk” used in their fabrics are manufactured in a way where the silk worms aren’t harmed. In fact the silk worms are hand reared from egg to metamorphosis.

I’m wearing the Sand Cami + Culotte Set. The combination of silk and cotton makes this fabric so transitional from casual to resort wear. I can even pair this top with a formal skirt for cocktail nights!
