Esther Sandler started Togetherness in 2011 as a way of exploring making products for the everyday with a focus on craft techniques, print and pattern.
Each and every piece of this collection is printed, cut and sewn in Melbourne.
The majority of Togetherness products are made in house at our studio, with some sewing outsourced to a local seamstress during times of heavy demand. They utilise locally based providers for the digital fabric printing where possible.
The digital printing they use utilise a low impact process without the need for harmful chemicals and minimising water use, and the small quantities they print ensures low wastage. They also like to use up our fabric scraps by making small batches of scrunchies and cushion covers from time to time.
They've also taken the step of considering environmental footprint beyond the making stage and have implemented sustainable packaging, carbon neutral shipping and recycling or composting of waste products at our studio. They are also excited to be moving to solar power at our studio in 2021!
