Our Suppliers: Untouched World
Ethical, sustainable, top quality merino clothing
Untouched world make beautiful, sustainable and ethically sourced natural fibre garments. Their brand ethos is simple; create easy to wear, easy care pieces that will last for years and years. Pieces that not only make you feel good inside and out, but are also easy on the earth. Quality and sustainability are the pillar stones of the brand and they are very adamant they will not compromise on either.
Untouched world are the first and only lifestyle fashion company in the world to be recognised by the United Nations for sustainability.

What does sustainability mean? Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility.
Untouched World was founded by Peri Drysdale, a leading pioneer in the New Zealand wool and knitwear industry. Peri recognised the negative effects the fashion industry was having on the environment and the workers in factories.

“Depending who you talk to, clothing is one of the top two or three dirtiest industries and has some of the most hideous human rights issues going on the planet,” Peri says.

Peri thinks all companies should have a clear understanding of their impact on the environment, and keep a close eye on their supply chain.

“Its important to look at the product life cycle, making sure the people who work on your clothes are being treated well.”
