At Marho & Co. we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and looking after the people and the planet to our best ability. We believe it’s the small things we do everyday that make a real difference.
Some initiatives we’ve implemented in store are;
We have proper recycling bins and recycling systems in place in our stores and office including separate bins for hard plastic, glass, paper, soft plastic and general waste.
Recycled bin bags are used as a bin liner
We use paper bags for in store purchases
All soft plastics are correctly recycled.
We keep our stock quantities to a minimum when ordering for our store and work closely with our suppliers to invest in special pieces and not support mass production.
Natural cleaning products are used in store that aren’t so harsh on the environment and our water systems.
The Label Focus is to be Creative and Unique, yet Effortless and Wearable. Gone are the days of mass collections, the brand is giving you limited run carefully thought, tirelessly designed pieces. Each piece is seen as a little peice of "Wearable Art", Garments are hand made, slowly, in small quantities. All styles are sent plastic free via our e-boutique.
The Bare Road
We have been working with a group of workers in a small village in Bali, Indonesia for almost a decade now and have formed very close relationships, and consider them to be part of our extended family. Our pieces are hand dyed and hand printed - although we keep dying to a minimum and try to use woven fabrics cottons and linens. Our off-cuts and left over fabrics are donated to the workers to make traditional clothes for themselves and the local village as our initiative to reduce waste and up-cycle. We sea-freight the bulk of our shipment - which has a reduced carbon footprint than air-freight – we believe in doing our best in areas to reduce the impact we have.
TBR is dedicated to small scale production this helps eliminate the environmental impact and makes sure that none of our workers are overworked to meet deadlines. Each TBR item is designed in Australia and sourced and produced in Bali and China by using hand made techniques such as hand-dying and hand printing by a local village. We regularly visit the manufacturing team and know they are treated fairly and are paid over minimum wages and that all working conditions are fair and safe.
This world of ours is complex, vast and inimitably beautiful - to experience it is the ultimate luxury. With privilege comes responsibility and FELLA is committed to conscious initiatives that minimise our environmental impact and ensure future fellas can also know this natural beauty.
We believe less is more and that a good thing never really ends. We are anti-excess in both production and principle. We preference small-runs and made-to-order where possible to avoid production waste. Our updated packaging features a combination of compostable and recycled materials.
We have partnered with Future Neutral to enable our customers to offset the associated carbon emissions of their purchase at checkout. Classic design and quality construction means swimwear that endures. Our reverence for quality sees us invest in durable, premium fabrics that are woven to see the FELLA woman through many seasons of long lunches and midnight swims. We are imperfect but always learning and ever evolving.
Friend of Audrey
Friend of Audrey was created in response to the negative impacts of mass consumption and realised there was a gap in the market – somewhere in between fast fashion and designer wear. As a believer of slow fashion, Friend of Audrey focuses on producing beautiful, quality pieces with integrity. Our curated collections are designed by a small team in Sydney, Australia. Being mindful of affordability, our products are reasonably priced alongside designer counterparts.
Ethical fashion is one of the important considerations at Friend of Audrey.
Our clothes are made by small factories, in small production lines around Shanghai, China. We do not mass produce. We are committed to quality. We visit our factories every year to ensure working conditions are safe and satisfactory.

We consciously order just the right quantity for our customers, to ensure that there is no waste. By purchasing our products, you can have a piece of mind that you are supporting these values.
