COMING MID 2020!

At Nobody Denim, Sustainable business is good business. Ethics are at the heart of what they do and we LOVE that. Nobody Denim is on a journey to be a leading advocate of good business practice. They believe in a triple bottom line approach that sees people and the planet as integral to their decision-making and direction.

 

 

LOCAL PRODUCTION
At Nobody Denim they're committed to manufacturing their denim garments in Melbourne and guaranteeing the maintenance of fair working conditions. Not only does designing and producing in-house keep jobs and dollars in the country, it enables them to stay at the raw edge of contemporary fashion – responding to trends and street style in real-time. All the while minimising their carbon footprint.
BY MAKING LOCALLY USING THEIR OWN DENIM FACTORY AND LAUNDRY, THEY:
  • Keep jobs onshore and help keep the Australian textile manufacturing industry alive.
  • Employ over 80 people.
  • Contribute to the local economy.
  • Shorten our supply chain – our head office, factory, laundry and retail store are all within a 6km radius.
  • Increase transparency.
  • Reduce travel miles and minimise the carbon footprint of each garment.

 

 

 

 

ETHICAL
Accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) and working closely with The Textile Clothing and Footwear Union of Australia (TCFUA) – Nobody Denim maintains an ethical workplace, provides fair wages and operates under Australian Worksafe approved conditions. Nobody Denim is proud of the conditions in which its clothing is made and believes that fashion should be made in a safe environment where creativity, quality and people are valued equally.

“IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO US THAT THE PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH US ARE TREATED FAIRLY AND THAT WHAT WE DO IS TRANSPARENT FOR OUR CUSTOMER – SO THAT THEY CAN FEEL PROUD OF WHAT THEY’RE WEARING THE SAME WAY WE FEEL PROUD TO PUT IT ON THE SHELVES.”
– Nobody Denim Design Team

 

 

ENVIRONMENT
Nobody Denim work with Sustainability Victoria as well as energy and materials efficiency assessors to identify ways to reduce their environmental footprint.
WATER
In Australia we live in the world’s second driest continent, behind only Antarctica. Water saving is therefore critical and a priority for Nobody Denim:
  • Since 2017 they've reduced water use by 50% in their stone washing and bleaching processes.
  • They're currently exploring other ways to save water, including steam recapture.
ENERGY
Nobody Denim is working to become more energy efficient across the whole company. They support the Paris Agreement on climate change and aim to decarbonise their business and supply chain, aligning with the global goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. They're at the beginning of this journey but are proud of the progress they've made so far.
The factory has been their first focus:
  • Lighting accounted for 40% of the factory’s energy consumption so they switched to LEDs and significantly cut their electricity use.
  • They've saved energy by investing in more efficient technology, combining three machines into one to significantly cut electricity.
  • To make their sewing machines more energy efficient, they're looking at investing in new motors.
  • To keep their spatial footprint small rather than expanding into bigger premises as they’ve grown, they've opted to stay in their existing factory. They’ve done this by making their garment assembly more efficient. This has reduced space and saved energy.

And these are just some of the reasons why we support these amazing, homegrown individuals leading the way in the Australian fashion industry! They deserve all of our support!
