We are excited to introduce a continuation of the #WeWearAustralian Initiative powered by payment provider Klarna in partnership with Showroom X. Klarna has joined forces with #WeWearAustralian to unite the national fashion industry and help support local designers. By #workingtogether and buying Australian, we can all do our part to help our homegrown fashion retailers survive and thrive.
As an Australian owned and designed label, we are so proud to be taking part in the #WeWearAustralian initiative presented by Showroom X to raise awareness for those in the Australian fashion industry who have been deeply impacted by the global situation at hand.
Our local fashion industry employs hundreds of thousands of Australians every day and like so many industries right now it is under real threat. By buying Australian brands first you are supporting our fashion industry right now when it needs you, and in turn, ensuring we still have a thriving industry once these challenging times are behind us.
OUR FACTORY IN CHINA
Papinelle has proudly worked continuously and closely with our main supplier in China for over 15 years. Long-lasting supplier relationships are as important to the company as the sourcing of sustainably produced natural fabrics for our sleepwear designs. We have personally visited and inspected our main factory and they have also been inspected independently by BSCI (an independent auditor initiated by the Foreign Trade Association).
#WeWearAustralian participating brands will make a donation to help those in need by way of conducted partnerships with Dress for Success & Thread Together. For the month of April, we will be donating one or more Papinelle pieces for every five garments sold through this initiative to Thread Together, our ongoing and wonderful partners who deliver quality, new clothing to those that need it most.
