Brand to Watch: Vege Threads

Posted in Style
by Johanna Andersson on 30 January, 2019

‘Ethically made in Australia’ – we read these words quite a lot nowadays, and it makes us curious: what has made the Aussies so progressive? (We’ve actually sent one of our co-workers there to find out, code for ‘she’s visiting her BF’, so we’re waiting for a full report when she gets back.) They’re no doubt significantly ahead on swimwear, with a wide range of brands offering super minimalist pieces cut from the modern, recycled materials. Melbourne-based label Vege Threads, for example, craft theirs with 78% Econyl fibers made from recycled post-consumer waste, such as recovered ocean nets.

But that’s not all they do well. Their entire collection is manufactured locally in Australia using organic and eco-friendly materials. Being committed to transparency and an ethical supply chain (accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia), they also recognize the importance of giving back. As members of 1% for the Planet – a company started by the founders of Patagonia with the purpose of creating a positive impact through businesses – they donate a percentage of profits to local and global environmental projects and NFP movements.

Except for the already mentioned Econyl swim pieces, Vege Threads’ collection focuses on light and easy everyday basics, undies and Yoga wear made from eco-friendly fabrics, like organic GOTS certified cotton jersey, hemp linen, and 100% Merino wool – all dyed with plant-based or Australian Certified Organic (ACO) dyes. Seeing it makes us long for summer even more, and dream about long days spent at the beach; surfing, doing Yoga and being one with nature. Should we just stop complaining and move already?
