Here at OF, we believe that contemporary fashion and sustainable practices go hand in hand. As a small business ourselves, we have chosen to support boutique makers & suppliers, in addition to specifically sourcing local businesses for the production of our OF by Amanda Shadforth collection. By placing focus on Australian made products, we are able to keep our greenhouse gas emissions low and support universal ethical labour standards for employees.
OF T-shirts are designed and made in Australia using organic, sustainable Australian cotton. We proudly pay a premium for talented and highly qualified seamstresses to produce our T-shirts, in addition to using premium quality fabric and processes in our production. When it came to finding a manufacturing partner for our pieces, we set about to find a local business that held quality and ethical practices in as high regard as we do, we are proud to say that we have partnered with a company which has been awarded the below accreditations and produces the OF collection with the upmost care and quality.
- Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA)
- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
- Fair Wear
- Carbon Trust
OF by Amanda Shadforth art prints are personally hand drawn by Amanda and then printed locally by an expert craftsman who specialises in fine art printing. Our printing partner is located within 100 kilometres of the OF studio which allows us to use light vehicle transportation and keep transport emissions as low as possible.
Above all else, the OF by Amanda Shadforth collection has been created with quality and ethical practices as the highest priority. In addition to creating a collection that celebrates Amanda’s art, all styles are produced in small and limited quantities which allow us to reduce our environmental impact, while creating a special experience for our treasured customers. We are by no means perfect, however it is our intention to carry these values forward with every collection, and to continually evaluate our Best Practices in order to consistently improve our supply chain and understand our environmental impact.
We hope you enjoy your OF by Amanda Shadforth artworks and garments as much as we have enjoyed creating them for you.
Amanda Shadforth & Team
