The Ark receives ethical clothing tag
Jan '13
Melbourne based women’s boutique fashion label, The Ark, has been accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia. The Ark offers a contemporary range of women’s designer clothing, with a bit of attitude, great fit and fabrics, warm colors and trans-seasonal basic items.

“At The Ark, we love the simplicity of our garments being designed and made in Australia using fabrics sourced from around the world” Christine Metcalfe says.

“Being Australian made allows us to design and manufacture ethically smaller runs of unique styles to create individual pieces and an honest design process with each garment” she adds.

Ethical Clothing Australia welcomes the accreditation of The Ark. For Simon McRae, “The Ark is already committed to supporting locally designed and made clothing in Australia. Through their accreditation with ECA they are demonstrating their commitment to their customers and their workers that all their clothing is produced ethically.”
