The Australian Fibre Collective is a not for profit Association, formed with the aim of increasing awareness of the Australian Fibre and Textile Industry whilst eliminating some of the confusion in the market place regarding Australian made Fibre and Textile products. Licensees who use our Registered Trade Mark, have been carefully audited by Australian Fibre Collective Inc. representatives, to ensure that the products displaying the Trade Mark are indeed 100% Australian grown, manufactured and or crafted products.
The purposes of the association are—
The promotion of 100% Australian grown and fully Australian manufactured fibre products.
To enable consumers to readily identify authentic 100% Australian grown and Australian manufactured fibre products.
Encourage transparency of supply chain from fleece to finished product.
Encourage the use of sustainable low carbon footprint fibres.
Educate consumers about fibre products; the supply chain.
To be the representative organisation for all people involved in the production of Australian Fibre and textile products irrespective of what stage/s in the supply chain in which they are involved.
Encourage Collective member monitoring of fibre products in order to maintain credibility in our brand.
