FABRICS

Here at TWO DAUGHTERS, we're more than a fashion brand. As the creator of TWO DAUGHTERS I personally make sure we stick to substantial ethical standards. 

I believe that as consumers, we have a moral obligation to make mindful purchases: who made my clothes? All of TWO DAUGHTERS garments are created here in NEW ZEALAND in my home based workroom, the fabrics I choose are locally milled here in New Zealand. The textile company we use is an ISO 9001:2008 registered company. Yarn handling is in compliance with MAF bio security requirements. The company adheres to Workplace Safety Management Practices to provide a safe environment for all staff.
