ETHICS AND SUSTAINABILITY
We recognise the profound impact consumer systems and fast fashion have had on the state of the environment and the lives of workers.
Our ethics are at the forefront of our decision making. From design to delivery we aim to leave as little impact as possible.
the design phase
Jus Gudi strives to be exactly that… just GOOD. Ethics and sustainability are at the absolute forefront of our values and in turn inspire our decision making from design to delivery.
Our garments are high quality, genuinely hand crafted and cared for creations that are designed to stand the test of time. By avoiding seasonal collections and using timeless silhouettes that adjust to your body and its changes, our garments are designed to grow with you.
We dedicate a lot of time in the design and development phase to ensuring we have a product that flatters a variety of body types.
We truly believe all clothes should be made with this much love and attention!

Our fabrics are locally sourced high quality, mostly natural fibre deadstock. We have eliminated the use of polyester fabrics that do not decompose and whose microfibers damage both the health of humans and marine life. This also means our fabrics are durable, breathable and biodegradable.
We have recently started working with an ethical manufacturer in India to produce organic cotton and hemp fabrics. These fabrics are hand woven and dyed with GOTS approved non-toxic dyes.
From toiling out of second hand table clothes to creating our hats and scrunchies out of scraps, we work to reduce waste at every step!

Producing locally has a lower carbon footprint and helps enrich the larger Australian community.
All aspects of our production, including design, patternmaking, cutting, screenprinting and construction are hand crafted and considered by co-founders, Jehna and Sophia, right here in Sydney, Australia. When we say handmade… we MEAN IT!
Our printing process uses water based non-PVC inks and our processes reduce water waste and aim to create minimum environmental impact.
Our garments are made to order or made in very small batches in order to avoiding creating excessive amounts of garments, a huge problem within the textile industry.
and into the world!
We aim to make eco choices in ALL areas of our business. All our stickers, swing tags and thankyou cards are printed by us or local printers on recycled paper stock.
Our packaging is COMPOSTABLE! Once you receive your mailer you can put it straight into your compost bin and it will completely biodegrade.
Thankyou for supporting conscious businesses and valuing our beautiful planet! We will continue to do what we can in this toxic industry for people, animals and the planet.
