Where style and natural fibres meet

AOK Clothing’s ethos embraces the intersection of style and sustainability, herein lies the new revolution in fashion  - where natural fibres take centre stage.

From luxurious organic possum fibres to breathable merino wool, these fibres not only exude sophistication but also prioritise the health of our planet. Creating our garments from sustainable natural fibres can be challenging due to the limited availability of sustainable natural fibres compared to conventional fibres like cotton or polyester. 

Keeping true to our ethos—where style and natural fibres meet, we seek and find suppliers of natural fibres from renewable sources that are not only kind to the environment but are also healthy to wear. Natural fibre clothing is generally considered healthier to wear compared to synthetic fabrics.

The majority of our collection is created from 100% NZ Merino Wool. We also stock the beautiful Merino Possum and now the Luxurious Cashmere wool jumpers - these jumpers, vests, jackets,skirts and pants are perfect for our cooler climate in winter. For the summer months, we have other natural fibres, for example, cotton, linen and fine wool which are breathable, hypoallergenic, and gentle on the skin. They allow for better air circulation, reducing the risk of skin irritation, rashes, and allergies.

Additionally, natural fibres are biodegradable and do not contain harmful chemicals or toxins that are often found in synthetic fabrics. Choosing natural fibre clothing not only benefits your own health and comfort but also contributes to a more sustainable and eco-friendly fashion industry.

Overall, stocking sustainable natural fibres at AOK Clothing requires careful planning, collaboration with suppliers, and a commitment to sustainability throughout the supply chain. However, the benefits of offering sustainable clothing options can outweigh the challenges, as consumers are increasingly looking for eco-friendly and ethical clothing options.

Embracing a wardrobe where style and natural fibres meet and making a conscious choice to support ethical fashion and eco-friendly practices ensures a movement towards a more sustainable and stylish future, a future in which your locally owned and operated clothing manufacturer and retailer - AOK Clothing is playing its part in.
