MADE IN AUSTRALIA
We're proud to announce our latest launch: the Made In Australia Collection, a capsule edit that has been responsibly manufactured In Melbourne. Working with homegrown businesses Is Important to us; a pathway to supporting local craftsmen and women working within the Australian textile Industry, and in alignment with our conscious commitment to sustainability long-term.
The journey to create our Made In Australia collection began In 2019. With the intense impacts of severe drought and bushfires affecting our farmers and communities at the time, the kernel for Made In Australia was the desire to produce on home soil; to support wholesome manufacturing and pour some love back into Australia.
Our Made In Australia edit of T-shirts and tanks, launching today exclusively on pe-nation.com, has been crafted from Australian manufactured fabric. Each piece Is knitted, dyed and finished In Melbourne, In a facility that priorities sustainable manufacturing focused on circular, softer-on-the-planet practices, and fair and safe work environments.
The Made in Australia collection features a colour palette of black, white and rugby tan with signature P.E graphics and detailing.
"Joining P.E Nation on their path to create Australian-made apparel has been a fantastic journey. We're really grateful to work with one of Australia's leading brands and showcase local capability. Having P.E Nation Invest In local manufacturing and recognise our commitment to Innovation, sustainability and responsible manufacturing Is great reward for many years of hard work." - Julian Collins, Global Sales Manager, ABMT Group
The ABMT Group are proud of their Textiles and Apparel facilities. Upgraded skylights, 1400 solar panels housed on their premises and a transition to the latest water treatment processes all go towards providing environmentally conscious processes and bright, safe working conditions. All of this, combined with their commitment to providing fair wages to the men and women who worked to create each garment, aligns with our values and makes the Made In Australia edit a responsibly manufactured and sewn collection - something we couldn't be more proud of.
In every sense, the Made in Australia collection embodies sustainability, strength and support.
