Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) is thrilled to announce the recent accreditation of Wilderness Wear Australia Pty Ltd. Wilderness Wear manufacture premium quality socks and clothing engineered to perform in harsh climates. All of the Wilderness Wear products are manufactured in Australia.

For Phil Endersbee, Wilderness Wear Founder and Director, producing locally and responsibly has been at the heart of his business since the beginning. Becoming accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia was for him a logical step to take. 

“In an environment where many in Textile and Apparel Manufacturing are closing down and moving to Asia, we at Wilderness Wear continue to manufacture in Australia. In fact, we are investing in plant, systems and staff training as part of our culture of continuous improvement” he says.

With Ethical Clothing Australia accreditation, customers can be sure when they purchase a product from Wilderness Wear that all the persons involved in the production have received fair wages and good working conditions.

For Simon McRae, Wilderness Wear is an example of accountability in a very competitive market: “While more and more well-known Australian outdoor clothing brands are produced off shore Wilderness Wear continues to produce high quality products in Australia. We’re proud they are accredited.”

Producing ethically for Wilderness Wear is also about environment. They use fibre and materials that are environmentally friendly and traceable, such as musled-free wool. As they are their own manufacturer, they monitor everything they produce, to packaging from 100% post-consumer waste boards and papers. “We enjoy the outdoors and we believe Wilderness Wear should do its best to protect the very resources that make this possible” Phil says.

Wilderness Wear Australia Pty Ltd has been created over 20 years ago and successfully develop in Australia and abroad. Wilderness Wear equip the Australian Antarctic Division, Victoria Police, Victorian Ambulance Service, Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife, Telstra and the Australian Defence Forces. They also supply specialist outdoor retail stores, industrial suppliers and export to Europe, Japan and both North and South America.

Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) is an accreditation organisation for the Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Industry governed by a management committee of made up of TCF employer organisations, individual TCF business and trade unions.
