Nevertheless, that’s what John Condilis – the co-founder of Ethical Clothing Australia-accredited brand Nobody Denim – decided to do some 20 years ago.
Nobody Denim is an iconic Australian fashion brand that has been celebrated in Australia and around the world for its premium women’s denim since 1999.
The brand says that by manufacturing their garments locally and using their own denim factory and laundry, they keep jobs onshore and help keep the Australian textile, clothing and footwear manufacturing industry alive, employing more than 80 people. This model also allows Nobody Denim to shorten the brand’s supply chain, increase transparency and reduce travel to minimise the carbon footprint of each garment.
Nobody’s team believes that sustainable business is good business, and say that ethical manufacturing is at the heart of what they do. Listen in as I chat to John to find out what that means, and what the brand’s onshore manufacturing set up looks like – from design to dispatch.
