How did Farm To Hanger get here?
In 2017 our founder, Anna-Louise started Farm To Hanger in a double garage in inner suburbs of Sydney, Australia. (ECA certified of course!) Borne from one of her collections of her first fashion label, Anna-Louise put a collection together that was made from Australian grown fibres, Australian made fabric and all Australian manufacturing. It was called Farm To Hanger Collection. It embodied everything Anna-Louise wanted to build upon, and after it's success, she decided to create a whole new brand.
Farm To Hanger was created and it's purpose was to establish a net-zero carbon emission, non-polluting fashion business model and to ensure that the garments created are the best environmentally and ethically produced.
Just a few month's later Farm To Hanger had outgrown the space and a tough but purpose driven decision was made, to pause the business and relocate to Victoria. To build an Eco-factory and be surrounded by like minded people who understood, that we not only wanted to achieve huge sustainability goals but also stay 100% Australian Made.
Today, we have succeeded in this purpose.
We have built our eco factory that produces a low impact range of garments, built for longevity, resource efficiency, recyclability and biodegradability. From Australian owned and operated farms, where our beautiful cotton is Australian grown. Fibre manufacturers including ginners, weavers, knitters and dyers of fabrics that are Products of Australia. And with our local garment production, we are 100% Australian Made and if that wasn't enough, we are proudly 100% Australian Owned.
However it doesn't stop there..
Then there are other businesses that we support downstream, the truckies and posties, the Melbourne cardboard box makers, local printers, machinery manufacturers and mechanics. More than 20 businesses and their staff, all Australian people working hard to make everything you see.
There's also something else you don't see when you buy Australian Made, those little things business owners do, giving back to the community, sponsorships, donations, carbon offsets, etc. They all add to support Australian families and local communites.
Thank you for choosing Farm To Hanger and supporting wearable change.
By supporting us you are contributing to the livelihoods of hundreds of people that help make our garments possible.
