Ethical Sustainability Recycled Fabrics

Sustainable and Eco Conscious Fabric Printing

Here at Mereton, we are proudly Australian owned and are strong supporters of local manufacturing. But that doesn’t make us perfect. We are always looking to adapt and better ourselves regarding ethical and sustainable textile manufacturing that is free from modern slavery and excessive wastage.

We are committed to the environment and have always applied best practices for a more sustainable textiles industry.

It’s our vision that ethical textiles become a significant part of everyday life, not only enhancing people’s lives, but the environment we live in.
