If you’re a fan of ethical and transparent production in all your manufacturing, you'll be a fan of Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA).

To bring you up to speed, the ECA voluntary accreditation program offers practical and affordable assistance to Australian businesses that are manufacturing locally. They ensure that Australian supply chains are fully transparent and legally compliant.

The Textile, Clothing and Footwear Union of Australia (TCFUA) conducts third-party compliance audits, mapping a company’s entire supply chain through the cut, make and trim process, including all value adding processes.

By shopping and supporting accredited brands, you are helping to strengthen the local industry and protect the lives of Australian workers. Featured below, these brands offer high quality products, ensuring their practices are fully transparent and legally compliant in accordance with the ECA.
