Values

We wholeheartedly support sustainability and innovation. We recognize that the traditional fashion industry model has placed a strain on our earth and its resources, therefore we aim to support those that are re-writing business and manufacturing constructs in order to find a better way for the future. We intend to set a new example for the industry by bringing together brands that are championing this change.

Environmentally Conscious

Environmentally Conscious

Sustainable has a lot of different meanings. At Public Figure we work with labels with environmentally conscious methods and materials - from the eco dies and renewable materials they use in low water usage and waste processes to carbon neutral and solar powered factories.

Ethical Production

Ethical Production

Bettering our impact on the world around us is paramount to Public Figure. One of our core values is to ensure the people making our clothes are working in safe and healthy conditions, for a fair living wage with no forced or child labour. We want to uplift artisans and manufactures around the world - ensuring quality, preserving skills and supporting manufacturers doing the right thing. Our ethical brands hold certifications from international bodies from ensuring their standards.

Made in Australia & NZ

Made in Australia & NZ

Manufacturing in Australia and New Zealand supports local suppliers, pattern makers, machinists and manufacturers. These labels uplift our local industries while ensuring impeccable quality. Locally made clothes also have less distance to transport and therefore have less carbon emissions to get to from the designer, to Public Figure, to you.

Organic

Organic

One solution to mitigate this as a conscious consumer is to seek out GOTS certified organic materials. GOTS represents the Global Organic Textile Standard, a worldwide authority who endorse fabrics based on their set of criteria for social and ecological impacts. The benefit of choosing a garment made from GOTS certified organic cotton is that it demands far less water to grow and the methods used cultivate the cotton crops give back to the earth through biologically diverse agriculture which prevents the need for pesticides.

Recycled Materials

Recycled Materials

A significant portion of a fabric’s environmental impacts can be reduced by repurposing what is already in circulation. Not only does this save the material from going to landfill but in closing the loop and making it into a new garment we place less demand on the earth’s resources to produce something from scratch. 
Another sustainable approach relates to regenerating the core fibre and weaving it into a new fabric entirely. Using discarded materials like fishing nets, new fabrics like Econyl have been formed to repurpose otherwise unwanted materials

Handmade

Handmade

Handmade is our latest value. Handmade production ensures the quality of each piece and preserves traditional techniques while using less energy, and making producers more mindful of waste and using naturally derived materials.
