Yes, Merineo is designed and manufactured in Australia! We use Australian superfine merino wool, knitted into fabric in a mill in Italy, or locally in Melbourne.
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.
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 have our binding fabric cut 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.
And there are many more suppliers who we love working with who have helped make Merineo what it is today!
