This year's style is all about Scandinavian simplicity, natural pared-back looks, plant-filtered air and even a bit of boho or minimalism thrown in there too.

But, I want to find products that are not just top notch in looks and style, but are also made with more care, made to last and made more sustainably and ethically too. If I buy sustainable looking textiles, or boho cushions, I want to know it doesn't just look ethical, but make sure it is made ethically too.

So I've had a hunt around and found some of Australia's best.

Even better most of these products are so beautiful on their own you many never even have noticed the amazing things that go on behind the scenes. 

Uniquely, every one of these businesses provides incredible transparency at every step right from the raw materials to the final steps of every, single product. That is what real sustainability and ethics is about. 

Cloth & Co ( @clothandco, @artisansoffashion)

Cloth & Co has one of the most beautiful ranges of interior products - from blankets, to tableware to candles. Cloth & Co support rural communities, in particular female workers in Nepal and India. They trace every product right back to the raw materials it is made from and the founders have spent many, many years working with NGOs within the region to truly understand how trade can effectively support communities. The big difference is, they have taken traditional crafts and redesigned them in the most subtle ways  to create products for the truly luxury market.

Armadillo & Co (@armadilloandco)

You can see Armadillo & Co's rugs in almost any interiors magazine you pick up and for good reason. They have a range of stunning circular rugs in beautiful natural designs and rugs perfect for kids rooms. Every product is handmade from natural, sustainable fibres like hemp, wool or even recycled PET for their outdoor collection. They support communities through fair work conditions and wages, non-toxic processes and ensure no child labour in making their goods. Even further, they fund local schools and community projects too.

It is incredibly rare to find a brand in Australia where everything is grown and made onshore and sustainably too. Seljak stands out in the beautiful look of their whip-stitch blankets, in their support of Tasmanian wool farms and mills, but also in their approach to recycling materials and sustainability. Every product is made from Australian wool but also uses a combination of alpaca, polyester and other fibres from the offcuts on the mill floor. I have visited the mills these blankets come from, in the beautiful hills of Tasmania, and setting is nothing short of as romantic as it sounds!

Aussie products that tick all the bixes

Recently purchased a beautiful merino throw for a wedding present. Was so impressed I bought one for myself.

Great service and gorgeous product.

I ordered sheets from Elkie & Ark, looking for luxury bed linen, locally and ethically produced. They tick all these boxes. In addition, the service was excellent- prompt reply to my questions, delivery notifications. The packaging was gorgeous with a personal little note. The sheets are very very good! So good, I’m snoozing my alarm to spend longer in them. For a premium product, the pricing is excellent. 5 stars from me and I’ll be buying more x

Top Quality

My beautiful white and blush linen shorts arrived. I love everything this small business stands for . Love and life xx

Such attention to detail

I absolutely ADORE my new linen Quilt set! The fabric is gorgeous, so to is the incredibly thoughtful packaging and fantastic linen bag you can store your set in when it’s not on the bed. The order process was straight forward, I received instant confirmation and the tracking once dispatched was timely and up to date. Package arrived within two days of my order being placed. I can to recommend Elkie and Ark highly enough!!

Beautiful products

I can't imagine ever buying bedding anywhere else now! The sheets are lovely and soft, and I can't tell you how excited I am to know the efforts Elkie and Ark have gone to ensure that their products are ethical and sustainable.
