Amber Days is an Aboriginal-owned ethical children’s wear label that is inspired by the Australian bush, desert and sea. Amber Days is made for mindful, adventurous, free-spirited little ones, who are the next generation of change makers.
After doing some research into the fashion industry and the toxins and practices used, founder Corina was pretty terrified. It reinforced the importance of transparency in the fashion industry and buying from designers that use organic fabrics that have been dyed with non-toxic dyes and produced ethically. The fast fashion industry needs to change and we need to support the ones making this change.
For this reason, Amber Days strives to create garments with minimal impact to the environment and also be a positive change in the fashion industry by supporting local and ethical manufacturers and fabric suppliers. Amber Days endeavour to continually improve their processes around sustainability and their environmental impact as well as support women and slow fashion.
