Transparency Passport

Price Transparency

Without understanding the story behind our products or the work, time and love that goes into it, the price of our products might seem quite high to some (to others we are not charging enough!). This is why we are being fully transparent to show you how our prices are calculated.

Our markup helps us to create a sustainable business where our working costs are covered. There are many ongoing costs of a business that aren't shown here, as this diagram only shows the direct costs of the garment itself. As we do not have any employees or stores, our markup is much lower than most brands. It also goes against everything we believe in to have exorbitant markups that is evident in the industry today.

Please note that this markup and our prices will likely increase in the future as we expand and have more overheads, employees and expenses but we will always be transparent with you about this. We not only want you to understand how you are voting with you dollar when you purchase with us, but we also want you to feel that your purchase and investment in our forever pieces is worthwhile.

Perhaps to help you put it into perspective, look around at what other brands in our price range are doing. Where are they made? Australia or off-shore? Are they ethically made? Are they doing everything they can to be sustainable? Are they honest and transparent about their prices? If you don't know or can't find this information, question it. Ask these questions, as they are important and you have the right to make an informed decision about your purchase and to be 100% sure you are not unknowingly supporting unethical or unsustainable practices.

If you have any specific questions about our pricing please email us and we will be happy to discuss.
