Ricepaper The Label believes in mindful consumption and minimising waste by creating long-lasting pieces. Ethically produced by a small community of women in Bali, Indonesia, Ricepaper The Label ensures their employees are paid above award wages, work in safe conditions, receive health insurance for themselves and their families, and are paid annual leave and sick leave. Designed in Ascot Vale, Victoria, Australia, Ricepaper creates elegant garments that are timeless, versatile and enduring to inspire self-confidence.
Each Ricepaper The Label collection consists of 3-5 pieces as they believe in only releasing wardrobe staples for each season. What makes Ricepaper unique is that they don't follow trends or the 'stuff' that you see in the big stores. Rather, each garment is considered and designed to be a lifetime staple.
Ricepaper The Label's factory is regularly visited, ensuring that all working standards are met. They do not engage in slave labour, overtime or poor working conditions. All workers are paid correct wages, sick pay and annual leave. The team try our best to use ethical and mindful fabrics but are hoping to make some styles in Melbourne in the coming months, which will expand their sustainable approach to production, something we are heavily committed too.
