ETHICS

MANUFACTURING

Garments are thoughtfully handcrafted, in house from our Melbourne studio by Kalaurie and her small team. This also includes cutting, pattern making and grading.

Kalaurie works on a made-to-order manufacturing model, meaning once an order is placed it is then carefully cut, assembled and packed especially for you. This is a more responsible way of manufacturing garments as only what is needed is produced- reducing garment waste and helping us to be more resourceful with materials.

Production time is between 7-21 days currently- This is subject to change depending on how many orders we have. To confirm production time please email contact@kalaurie.com.au

PURPOSE 

Kalaurie believes clothing should last a lifetime and it's important to us that you create a long-term love affair with your clothing which transcends trend and season. From design to finish, quality and timelessness is considered to create a long lasting functional garment.

When you invest in one of Kalaurie's pieces, you are collecting something which is well-made, thoughtful and intimate. To read more about Kalaurie's design ethos visit here.

To ensure your beloved Kalaurie piece lasts a life time we offer complimentary repairs. To learn about repairs visit here.

SUSTAINABILITY

As part of our commitment to sustainability, collections feature premium dead-stock/surplus fabrics and trims whenever possible. These fabrics and trims are no longer desirable to other brands and factories for a number of reasons including overstocking, no longer "in-season" or relevant to future collections. By using these materials on our collections we are saving them from landfill or destruction.

Reducing waste is a core value at Kalaurie and we are passionate about repurposing something considered undesirable and giving it a new beauty and meaningful life.

When sourcing we have a passionate focus on fabrics made from fibres, which come from renewable resources and are biodegradable. 

SUPPORTING AUSTRALIANS

All labels, swing tags and other promotion materials are manufactured within Australia. 

All fabric and trim sourcing is through local merchants.
