Zaket and Plover
Founded in 2004 by Chris and Effie, Zaket & Plover fast established itself as a leading Australian luxury knitwear label. With experience, knowledge and a love for fashion and travel, the husband/ wife duo have taken the business from strength to strength.
With strong ties to Italy, Zaket & Plover use only the finest quality yarns in their garments. Zaket & Plover has now imposed itself in the fashion market as a ready-to-wear collections label by adding woven co-ordinates to compliment their knitwear. Zaket & Plover remains to be a family business based in Melbourne and respects its core value of creativity and quality.
BUDDHA WEAR was founded in Bali, Indonesia in 2006. They started out producing yoga wear though it wasn’t long before requests & demands that took them one step further, into everyday wear. They are best known for their winning combination of simple colours & great fitting designs made from materials that are of outstanding quality. BUDDHA WEAR has always been a socially & ethically responsible company. And as a small business boutique we love supporting their ethics. They work hard to counteract the sweatshop mentality that is prevalent in Indonesia, with their own “WEAR FAIR” policy that ensures their staff receive a fair wage, subsidized meals, afterschool child minding and that they and their families receive health benefits. Simple & fair things, often taken for granted in other countries. BUDDHA WEAR only uses materials supplied by companies whose production isn’t directly harmful to the environment. BUDDHA WEAR donates a portion of their profit to charities for the support and care of HIV positive children in Bali.
