Why Australian Made?

One question we get asked a lot is, "Why have you chosen to keep your products made in Australia"? Once upon a time, Australia had a thriving manufacturing industry. We made all sorts of things before globalisation, trade agreements, tariffs and subsidies, cheap off shore processing and unpleasant realities like child labour became prevalent.

Gather & Moss grew out of an 'at home, hand made business', so when we started to grow and change, even though this one Mum could not hand make each piece herself anymore, I knew I wanted to keep things made in Australia. 

Locally made was something our customers were passionate about. I had been supported for 10 years by a wonderful tribe of customers who purchased our clothes and pyjamas out of a love of handmade and Australian Small business. Despite the changes we have made over time to the products we sell, this remains one of the primary reasons our customers keep coming back for our products. They love supporting not just our small local business, but they love that when buying from us, they are also supporting many other small local businesses such as our designers, our local knitters and our screen printers. 

Seeing the creative minds we are surrounded by here in Australia, and knowing that there is a customer base who prizes the ability to be able to buy locally produced goods, has made me more determined than ever to keep supporting our fabulous local industries and providing you with products that have a transparent and ethical chain of production.
