The Bare Road ~ Who Made Your Clothes?

Posted by Monique Hughes on

 

 

The Bare Road is designed in Byron Bay, Australia and is  based on quality, texture and long-lasting staples that translate seasonally into the ultimate basics lifestyle brand. 


A relaxed yet refined line of basics and resort wear, from the hearts of two humble creatives with an appreciation for classic, well-made garments, influenced by the Australian ocean paradise we call home.
"Founded and operated from the Northern Rivers coastal town of Byron Bay, The Bare Road is run by a small team of like minded individuals with genuine love for what we do. From a barefoot, sun-drenched heritage, our signature style has been seamlessly rendered into our label, representing an understated elegance for those who are true to themselves, who know their style, and wear it well."

Who Made Your Clothes? 

"We have been working with a group of workers in a small village in Bali, Indonesia for almost a decade now and have formed very close relationships, and consider them to be part of our extended family. Our pieces are hand dyed and hand printed - although we keep dying to a minimum and try to use woven fabrics cottons and linens. Our off-cuts and left over fabrics are donated to the workers to make traditional clothes for themselves and the local village as our initiative to reduce waste and up-cycle. We sea-freight the bulk of our shipment - which has a reduced carbon footprint than air-freight – we believe in doing our best in areas to reduce the impact we have."
The Bare Road is dedicated to small scale production this helps eliminate the environmental impact and makes sure that none of our workers are overworked to meet deadlines. Each Bare Road item is designed in Australia and sourced and produced in Bali and China by using hand made techniques such as hand-dying and hand printing by a local village.
"We regularly visit the manufacturing team and know they are treated fairly and are paid over minimum wages and that all working conditions are fair and safe."
We hope you love this label as much as we do!
