BLEK.BASIC began as a movement to simplify the modern wardrobe, founded in pursuit of crafting sustainable organic clothing without compromising the health of our workers, or the environment.
We care about where your clothes come from, so you don't have to.
In support of fair local trade and slow fashion, we made the decision to manufacture within an hour of our home so we could oversee every stage of production. We’ve teamed up with the best local artisans in Melbourne to provide you with ethically made and thoughtfully considered garments with purpose.
Transparency in production is what we strive for, to bring you the quality of garments we’re proud of, and the peace of mind that you deserve.
LOCAL IS BETTER.
We strongly believe in the power of locally made goods. Transparency in our production not only provides our consumers with peace of mind, but it demonstrates the possibilities of sustainable and ethically made clothing in Australia.
All of our garments are cut and sewn locally in Melbourne, using the finest and most sustainable fabrics available to us. This not only minimises the carbon footprint of your clothes travelling around the world, but it allows us to meet the expectations and ethical values we deeply value.
ONLY THE BEST.
100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC
Organic and ethically made, but crucially, manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power. Our organic cotton is grown, spun and knitted in Tirippur, India, at their carbon neutral Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified facility.
Incredibly soft, naturally breathable and hypoallergenic, our 155 GSM Organic Cotton is the perfect recipe for a longer lasting, harder wearing, everyday tee.
Unlike many fashion brands out there, we pre-wash all of our fabrics before cutting to understand just how much it will shrink.
We then calculate this shrinkage into our patterns for each and every colour, as every roll of fabric is unique. This means our tees are dryer-safe and will never twist or shrink at home.
It’s these crucial little details we fuss about, to ensure the longest lasting fit with minimal stretch.
FROM THE GROUND UP.
Noissue continually strives to be a leader in design, innovation, and sustainability. All their ink is soy-based and their tissue is completely acid free and FSC Certified, providing us with a premium packaging solution without harming the environment.
Being environmentally conscious is one of our core values and as such we hold ourselves accountable. It is 2019. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Fortune 500 company, or a boutique shop owner, we should all be striving to be more eco-friendly.
