DYES:

We receive all of our garments from our manufacturer in the raw colour, we then mordant them in soy milk (this helps the dye stick) which takes just over two weeks. Dye is created using organic plant matter or food waste (like avo skins and seeds from your fave brunch cafe) and rainwater run off from the roof of our own home. That’s the entire list of our dye ingredients: soy milk, plants and water. Our dye process takes just over a week for a totally cured garment and our by-products (plant matter, soy milk and water) are composted or used to water the garden.

The dye process is very organic and the results can be variable in tone and consistency, it is all a part of the magic - your dyed piece will be 100% unique and like no other.

GARMENT MAKING:

We work with an Australian - Thai based company that manufacture garments in Northern Thailand. They have strict fair working and living conditions and are regularly audited by external body, Li & Fung.

LABELS:

Our woven labels are printed by our friend Vincent in China, they are screen printed on organic cotton and Vincent is a legend.

PACKAGING:

Every order is packaged in a 100% upcycled fabric produce bag that you can reuse in your grocery shop (we’re serious about this no plastic thing).

Our swing tags are made by the incredible crew at ‘The Environmental Printing Co’ in Western Australia, we use deadstock jute string to tie your tags.

Currently, we use post consumer recycled paper postal bags but we’re thinking about changing to compostable bags, would love to hear your thought on this move so DM us on insta, facebook or email us your opinions.

LIFESPAN:

Hemp is an extremely durable fabric, if cared for correctly the lifespan of your garment could well be as long as yours. If you wear it as much as we do (yeah, pretty much every day) maybe your garment wears out a little quicker than you, but not to worry, we have carefully curated every aspect of our garments down to the buttons and tags so that it is fully compostable at the end of its life, just cut it up into small pieces and put it into your compost so the garment can join the plant kingdom all over again.

We 100% support, endorse and embody the slow fashion movement, our ideal is that our garments are purchased, loved and worn for a very long time. We do not do seasonal drops and random sales as we believe this condones the ‘never enough’ mentality. We are comfortable with lead times as a six week wait for something that will stay with you for a lifetime shouldn’t impact your buying decision. We are okay with doing a presale if it means there is less deadstock in the world. Anyway, you get it, we like slow, conscious choices.

One last thing, if for some reason you feel it doesn’t work for you anymore, please pass it onto a friend or family member who will adore it and continue its life.

Folktribe is an Earth inspired clothing label with a small footprint; plastic free, minimal waste, fairtrade and timeless design. It is the brainchild of Environmentalist sisters, Kellie and Emma who, along with their passion for design, saw a need to change the environmental impacts of the fashion industry.
The duo create hand drawn patterns and fabric design which is then printed in Sydney and Bali and fairly sewn in Bali. Their newly released 100% hemp range is fairly sewn in Chiang Mai, Thailand and botanically hand dyed by them right here in Australia. The design philosophy is not trend based but timeless; reflected in garments of quality that will last, resulting in less wasted resources.
'We are not only passionate about designing a beautiful garment that is versatile enough to go from work to the beach and then onto dinner but we work hard to minimise our environmental impact, from design ideas right through to delivery to your door.'
