Meet Our Makers

Melbourne Textile Knitters (MTK)

Stephen started his career in the textile industry in the late 1970s as a wool buyer for the large Japanese trading company Mitsui & Co.

He then went on to work for a British company designing hand knitting yarns from 1984 onwards. This led into the fine gauge knits he now currently produces from a variety of fibres.

MTK is 90 years old, Stephen has worked within it for 30 years and has owned it for the last 6 years.

Vangaki Pty. Ltd.

Two days before Aki was born his parents started their garment manufacturing company based in Collingwood, Melbourne.

In 1981 he started working with his parents full time and in 1989 he took over the business.

In this time the Economou family have become renowned for making premium quality garments for a variety of prominent Australian brands.

‘What I enjoy most is making beautiful quality garments and seeing people wear them.’

Tencel

Soft Touch

Our underwear is softer than silk and cooler than linen. A premium quality fabric that stands up against any of the worlds most beautiful textiles.

Odour Resistant

TENCEL™ fibres transport moisture directly to the fibre core, keeping the surface of your undies fresh and effectively eliminating body odour.

Non-Allergic

2000x LESS bacteria grows on TENCEL™ compared to synthetic fibres.

Moisture Wicking

TENCEL™ is 17x more absorbent than cotton. It can absorb huge amounts of moisture, without wetting the fibre surface. The moisture is directed into the fibre core, thanks to a network of sub-microscopic channels called nanofibrils.

Biodegradable in 12 Weeks

Note how our elastic waistband DOESN'T biodegrade?

Something our R&D is currently working on :)
