If you add value to any clothing in Australia you can apply for accreditation, but there are some guideline surrounding this.
Any clothing and textiles that are manufactured within Australia, are eligible for accreditation, providing all employees are treated according to the stringent guidelines.
Once you’ve submitted all your information to the ECA (Ethical Clothing Australia) it can take up to a year to assess. Each portion of the supply chain is vigorously checked to ensure it fulfils the obligations of Ethical Clothing Australia
