All Fringe Dweller garments are designed with sustainability at the core. This means that garments are manufactured, marketed and used in the most environmentally and socio-economic conscious ways. It is about sustainable patterns of consumption and use.
As a sustainable fashion label, Fringe Dweller only uses natural fabrics which are biodegradable and have a superior comfort level. Linen is used extensively throughout the collection due to its sustainable qualities. Linen comes from the flax plant which has traditionally been grown in Europe and requires little water or pesticides and fertiliser to grow. As a result, we only use high quality linen which has been grown in France or Belgium and is sent to China or Japan to be milled.
Linen is perfect for summer and transeasonal wear and can be layered up with other natural fabrics in the winter. It is breathable and feels good next to the skin. In the past linen was heavily pressed but today is mainly worn unpressed to give a slightly crumpled relaxed look. It is easy to care for and is a long lasting fabric when quality linens are used.
Gina Ermer is the Australian distributor for the Chilean handmade leather shoe brand, Tada.
Every pair of Tada shoes is handmade by shoemakers in Chile using the softest leather for lining and the upper. The leather has certification in the tannery process ensuring safe procedures are used in the production. The soles are made entirely of natural rubber which comes from a Brazilian tree, called Hevea Brasiliensis.
The combination of the soft leather and the rubber sole offers a flexible shoe designed for utmost comfort.
The name Tada, comes from Tadasana, the first pose in yoga, which means 'to stand well'. We incorporate this idea into the design of our shoes to ensure the best possible posture by allowing the weight to be distributed evenly across the foot in the metatarsal and heel which results in healthy and flexible feet.
