Yes, Merineo is designed and manufactured in Australia! We also use local suppliers wherever possible, taking us pretty much all over Melbourne -
We go to Bayswater for our eco-friendly box packaging, Tullamarine for the printing of our education brochures, Mount Waverley for our gorgeous grosgrain ribbon, Oakleigh for our tissue paper.
To produce our garment, we use beautiful 17.5 micron superfine merino wool - noting more than 90% of the words finest apparel wool is grown in Australia! We source our thread and zippers from an amazing supplier who has been in Richmond since the year dot. We go deep into the northern suburbs of Melbourne to get our binding fabric cut and made into binding.
For our labels, we drive to Hawthorn, and to get our embroidery done for our special wholesale customers, well that is a 50 kilometre drive.
Many of our main photos are taken by local award winning photographer Kiddy Kats Photography from Ferntree Gully.
And there are many more suppliers who we love working with who have helped make Merineo what it is today!
