Before we started manufacturing our own Moolk label, we were sourcing wholesale labels and with this, came a butt-load of plastic. Mountains and mountains of plastic poly-bags piled up in our tiny office, as each individual garment was sealed in its own plastic bag.
We are proud to say we recycled every scrap of soft plastic through Red Cycle collection centres, but I knew I could do more.
So now that we're manufacturing, we have more control. Not only over quality, fit and fabrics, but also in the amount of plastic we're generating as a small business.
We have chosen to NOT individually poly bag our garments, instead our lovely factory packs up to 20 garments in 1 poly bag. We don't like sending your garments in poly bags anyway, so they weren't really serving a purpose to us being wrapped individually. So to put it into perspective, for every 100 garments we make, we're only receiving up to 10 plastic poly bags. That's 90 poly bags that aren't being made and aren't going into the environment. YAY!
We only buy and print on 100% recycled paper.
Where possible, we avoid printing out packing slips and invoices to reduce the amount of paper we're consuming. This makes packing orders a little more time consuming, but it's worth the paper we're saving!
By working with a reputable, high quality factory, we reduce the number of 'faulty' garments we receive. You know, the ones we can't sell because we only want you to have the best of the best so they last the test of time.
Usually, those faulty items can't be saved and end up in landfill - eww!
Wherever possible, we get faulty items repaired and then donate them to a local charity called "Be Uplifted". They sell them in their op shop and the profits go towards helping women living with breast cancer.
Buying clothes online can be tricky business, especially when you've just had a baby and your body has changed drastically. I've been there and can totally relate!
We try to offer as much advice on sizing and fit on every product listing, as each style is different and designed to fit a certain way. We're also providing our models detailed bust, waist and hip measurements to help you choose the right size for you.
The Moolk collection is designed specifically for postpartum mums and for this reason alone, we've made our sizing on the 'generous' side for 2 reasons:
As we're now designing and manufacturing all pieces here at Moolk HQ, we now have more control over sizing and consistency across the board - yay! So below is an updated general sizing chart for your quick reference. You'll find your measurements land smack bang in the middle of 2 sizes #annoying! But please keep in mind measurements act as a guide only. I highly recommend you read the sizing tips on each product listing, as they're more detailed and reflect the individual design and fit of the garment and will often say "if you're in between sizes, we recommend sizing up/down for this style".
