Supporting our local talent is important to us. We have a wealth of passionate creative right here in Australia who are dedicating their craft to a good cause.
Remedy Den promotes inclusivity; we don’t like to leave anyone behind. And many communities in developing countries depend on a Western demand for textiles to substantiate their own livelihood. That’s why we continue to buy from communities in places such as Cambodia and Bangladesh – but we ensure the labourers are getting a fair chance.
We all need to curb our consumption, and second-hand is great … but there are some talented individuals crafting junk into items to treasure. Buying recycled means your purchase will come with a beautiful back story that you get to relay to every person who compliments you on your look.

Organic products are grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides and herbicides. Organic farming protects the health of people and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the soil, air, waterways and food supply – so it’s good for your health and the earth!

Conventional cotton farming is known as the ‘dirtiest crop in the world’ for its horrible environmental and ethical impacts. Production covers only 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land yet consumes 25% of the world’s insecticides and 10% of the world’s pesticides.
Not only is conventional farming harmful to our environment with synthetic pesticides ending up in our soil, air, waterways and food supply crops – but it is also harmful to our own health. The World Health Organisation estimates that 20,000 people a year die in developing countries from pesticide poisons and a further 3 million people suffer from chronic health problems.
