A line that says: we respect social equality, the environment and traditional practices.

“My reason for being is to improve social design while protecting the environment. To preserve culture and traditional artisan skills. To build global hearts where those that have can help those who do not have. To inspire through awareness of the issues and to empower the ‘pro’sumer with great products to change the world.”
Yvie Scott, Founder
Aware… The Social Design Project
Small impact on the planet, big impact on your conscience
Say goodbye to mass production, and hello to quality over quantity. Every time you shop with us at Aware…The Social Design Project you are making a statement. You care for the empowerment of others and the future of the planet (and you look good doing it!).
The revolution of slow fashion is upon us. Every person can choose to live an ethical, impactful life that liberates the planet from its environmental shackles, and its people from societal ones. Our focus is on promoting social, economic and environmental change by using upcycled materials, eco-dyes and traditional techniques.
WE SUPPORT FAIR TRADE, ARTISAN AND ECO FASHION
We are honoured to collaborate with so many excellent global initiatives supporting sustainable, artisan and fair trade practices.
Our pieces come from everywhere – here in Australia, Peru, Columbia, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Kashmir, Vietnam, Indonesia, Madagascar, Kenya, Ghana, Swaziland, Uganda,
We also produce our own fashion line: Awear…Social Re-design, focused on artisan textiles, upcycling, using environmentally low-impact dyes, and Fair Trade materials.
