The EY Label is ethically produced – made in our Melbourne studio – and endeavours to engage with and support local businesses. We produce limited runs on a made-to-order basis to ensure each piece is made with care, and use dead stock fabric sourced from local rag traders to minimise textile waste. We are mindful of the footprint we have on the environment and try to have a positive impact on the community through our supply chains.
As we enter a new stage in our business journey we are looking to implement further strategies to improve our environmental impact across our supply chains. We look forward to sharing these updates with you soon.
We recognise that fashion is evolving and that beautiful pieces of clothing aren’t enough, that's why we endeavour to support local businesses by regularly engaging with Mebourne's community of skilled artists and makers.
“I see my garments as stories of their own creation. It takes a community to construct a garment, and I have developed connections with local printers, spinners, textile designers and manufacturers so that these creations can exist. It is important to develop meaningful relationships with other makers to support you when you rely on many elements working together.” – Erik Yvon.
We have been lucky enough to work with a range of people with every collection and endeavour to pay homage to them with every drop.
