METTLE – FAIR TRADE
- METTLE - FAIR TRADE
- Brianna Hallihan
mettle – Fair Trade is the project of Melbourne based fashion designer Brianna Hallihan, who`s worked within the industry for a number of years both locally and abroad in London and Paris for design houses such as Alexander McQueen and Martin Grant.
All items are hand made, fair trade and limited edition using recycled bomb shell metal, Lucite and Eco leather. The entire range is produced in Cambodia and Indonesia within a small, not-for-profit, income generating and skills training project. All pieces are finished to the highest quality standards and aim to combine contemporary styling with ethical consumption.
*With a honed designer Aesthetic reached from a decade within the industry, discarded remnants are given a new life, savings them from landfill.
*All items are made from recycled materials.
*All items are Fair Trade accredited.
*The local Victorian design industry is given further support through training and employment within the mettle HQ in Melbourne.
The project is set up to support small disadvantaged producers, to provide growth and opportunity for them whilst creating a business model for a sustainable future.
This approach has provided us with outstanding growth each financial year and see`s us exporting to the USA, CHINA, ENGLAND, KUWAIT, SAUDI ARABIA, QATAR, SINGAPORE AND PUERTO RICO and of course AUSTRALIA.
