Palytte aspires to create beautiful products that are sustainably produced and ethically manufactured. We call this ethical aesthetics, and we try to make a difference where we can by managing all aspects of our business with the aim of reducing and neutralising our carbon footprint as much as possible.
We envision and encourage a collective that cares more about each other and the environment, and aim to steer away from the sell-more, make-more consumerist framework. We recognise that the clothing and textile industry we are a part of is obligated to do better at offsetting the waste and pollution generated through over-production and over-supply.
We pride ourselves on producing small-scale and timeless collections.
In order to upkeep our promise of sustainability, we focus on curating a classic style with high quality garments, designing pieces with eco-friendly materials that stand the test of time and can be re-worn, re-purposed and re-circulated season after season.
We produce limited quantities in the first-run of our pieces, and only reproduce items that are in high demand and sell-guaranteed, with the aim of counteracting any unnecessary and therefore avoidable wastage.
We only use eco friendly and sustainable packaging.
All of our garment bags are plastic-free and made from 100% compostable bio-based films. These fibres disintegrate organically into the biosphere, leaving zero trace of toxic chemicals in their place.
The tissue paper we use to wrap your order is also 100% compostable, made from entirely recycled materials. Our supplier uses FSC-certified paper that is acid, sulphur and lignin-free, and is printed with soy-based inks only.
The mailing bags we use to post your order are eco-friendly, 100% compostable and made from mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together).
The ethicality of our brand and our products is so important to us, which is why not only how we make Palytte garments but who makes them matters. All of our collections continue to be carefully designed on the Gold Coast, and are then communicated to our talented collaborators offshore for production.
We operate Palytte on the fundamental bases of quality and equality, therefore we are committed to ensuring each dedicated step involved in the manufacturing process of our products — from consulting and sourcing, to sampling and production — is socially and ecologically responsible.
We are highly selective with the factories we work with, both locally and off-shore, only engaging community-minded and independently ethical-verified manufacturers who share our common vision and advocate for sustainability, fair work standards, and supply-chain transparency.
