Ethos

Who we are

Arcadia Collection is a curated boutique stocking local Australian brands that create with their heart. With a focus on what is better for the planet and the people who have created your chosen piece, we have collected items which have a modern sensibility and a classic Australian laid-back attitude.

Our focus is longevity and quality over trend and price and our brands are dedicated to crafting pieces that are timeless. We are committed to subverting the contemporary model of fast fashion while offering high quality, beautifully made pieces.

We partner with brands whose values align with ours and have taken some of the guesswork out of ethical shopping. We offer customers a simple visual guide for shopping mindfully.

We are a platform for brands who are advocates and pioneers for the sustainable movement in fashion, homewares and beauty.

Community and Responsibility 

Arcadia Collection partners with the Carbon Neutral Plant-A-Tree program. Check out https://carbonneutral.com.au/ for details on their current projects.

Each month, we will donate to the Women's Earth Alliance which has a focus on supporting the role of women in environmental harmony. 

Our courier partner of choice is Sendle, who run a carbon neutral shipping service.

All of our parcel packaging is plastic free. We are a member of the NO ISSUE eco packaging alliance who provide our stickers and tape. We use HERO compostable mailers and PEFC and FSC accredited cardboard mailers through INKE.

Considered Materials and Manufacturing

Our brands use a mix of high quality dead stock fabrics, which have historically been deemed as waste and often ended up in landfill.

OEKO-TEX certified fabrics, which means that the fabric mills have meet high standards and use non-harmful chemicals in their fabric production. 

Our brands are either made locally in their in house studios, ethically accredited factories or small run factories in Indonesia and China.
