SUPPLY CHAIN
At Souten Clothing Co we aim to be 100% transparent.
You can read about each step of the garment creation process for this dress below.


FABRIC MANUFACTURING

This fabric is manufactured and printed by Cotton + Steel. This is done in Japan, working with suppliers known for their quality.
Cotton + Steel collaborated with Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Co to design this print.



GARMENT MAKING

The Anna blouses are made by Saheli Women.
Saheli Women is an ethical fashion  social enterprise based in rural Rajasthan, India. They employ over 20 local women, providing them with fair wages, health insurance coverage and a safe work environment free from gender, religious and caste discrimination.
Saheli Women's parent NGO, IPHD, IPHD sponsors the educations of all daughters of Saheli Women members, runs the only female health clinic in the village and delivers workshops on a range of topics including human rights, feminism, menstrual hygiene and health and financial literacy.
You can read more on Saheli Women's website



WASHING AND PRESSING

We wash a test-swatch, and calculate any shrinkage. This is incorporated into the sizing of the pattern.
When the garments are delivered to us, we cold hand wash with environmentally friendly products to pre-shrink them. We then line dry them in our garden, and iron them while watching netflix.



LABELS

Our woven labels and printed care labels come from Mpressive Label Creations. They are based in Thomastown VIC.



PACKAGING

Our swing tags, stickers, and insert cards are printed on 100% recycled materials in Fitzroy, VIC by Print Together. They specialise in environmentally responsible printing.
Our tissue paper is printed by No Issue. They use environmentally friendly soy-based inks, and all their paper is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Our mailing bags come from The Better Packaging Co and r3pack. You can read more about our different types of mailing bags HERE.



SOCIAL IMPACT

A minimum of 10% of our profits each year are donated to ONE GIRL.
You can read more about our partnership with One Girl HERE, or visit their website.
Souten Clothing Co creates effortless and playful garments in sizes 6 to 18 for wearers of women’s clothing, with a focus on ethical consumerism and transparent manufacturing.
Each item has been thoughtfully designed to be easy to wear, but make a statement with bold prints and bright colours.
Every step of the process is transparent, from how the base fabrics are made, through to manufacturing and shipping. We strive to make each step as sustainable and ethical as possible, from the cotton being grown by a collective of organic cotton farmers in north-eastern India, to the garments arriving at your door in packaging made from recycled materials.
Souten Clothing Co believes that fashion is a feminist issue; 80% of garment workers are women, and 75% of fashion purchases are made by women. The best way to support women the world over is to educate them.  10% to 50% of the profits of each item are donated to One Girl, which provides education for girls in the developing world. Approximately half of our collection is manufactured in India by Saheli Women - a social enterprise that gives women marketable skills and economic independence, and supports all their daughters to complete school.
