The Ark has officially been accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA).
Manufacturing in Melbourne has always been incredibly important to us at the Ark.
Our clothes have always been designed and manufactured in Melbourne by local manufacturers that we have used for over 20 years. We are proud to be able to publically say that all our clothing is ethically manufactured in Australia and that we support the Australian fashion industry.
We love the simplicity of our garments being designed and made in Australia using fabrics sourced from around the world. We are very proud of where we are at and pleased to be a major contributor to Australian made product and ethical clothing standards.
The ECA is an accreditation organisation for the Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Industry of Australia. They are governed by a management committee made up of TCF employer organisations, individual TCF businesses and trade unions.
Having the accreditation shows our compliance with the Home Worker Code of Practice and related legislation detailed in the Textile, Clothing, Footwear and Associated Industries Award 2010.
