FINALLY, THE ECO HAS LANDED: MEET THE WORKWEAR BRAND TRANSFORMING THE APPAREL & UNIFORM INDUSTRY WITH 100% RECYCLED MATERIALS
Beau Tex has launched as the first wholly sustainable and ethical textile, workwear and uniform manufacturer and design house. Australian designed and owned, Beau Tex is an industry leader in creating a more sustainable future, with waste minimisation, transparency, re-use and ethical trade practises at the forefront of all operations.
The brainchild of Brisbane-based entrepreneur and designer Brooke Jones who, after successfully launching sustainable salon clothing label Beautique Designs, realised her environmental design philosophy could extend beyond the salon walls. Beau Tex was born. An intelligent, versatile, unisex and environmentally sustainable workwear brand suitable for a variety of occupations and trades, made from 100% recycled materials.
Beau Tex will launch with signature designs expertly created from high performance, engineered and heavy-duty textiles for the street, salon, restaurant, construction or mining site and more. The business also offers custom products, designing and manufacturing branded protective and specialist workwear for a range of industries.
“Our products are crafted from high quality, intelligent fabrics that are made to last and not end up in land-fill,” said Brooke Jones, Beau Tex Founder and Director.
Saying no to landfill and yes to re-use, the Beau Tex fabrications are made from 100% recycled materials in addition to being anti-fade, bleach and hair resistant, anti-crease and anti-waste. The product range includes a stylish range of shoes, bags, trade accessories and apparel, all of which conform to the Beau Tex standards.
Working with suppliers to harness the potential of waste products, giving them a second life, the Beau Tex environmental process includes:
- Shoes and Boots: all footwear designs use a fabric made 12x 500mL recycled plastic water bottles, keeping discarded plastic out of the ocean and landfill. Beau Tex shoes are also water repellent, bleach resistant and made from 100% recycled materials with soles made from recycled rubber
Brooke said transparency is key in everything Beau Tex does, which means its supplier partners follow internationally recognised standards for fair employment, safe working conditions and clean production techniques as much as we can and will keep improving these methods of manufacturing as we grow.
“It’s my passion to never stand still in the quest to be better. We are constantly exploring, innovating, educating and incorporating ways in which every element of our product is ethically produced; from cut and sew, packaging to buttons and zippers… and everything in between,” she said.
“I am tremendously proud to be a helping hand in creating a more sustainable future for Australia.”
