Launching our debut collection in 2021, here is a bit about the story behind how Arlo & Olive came to be.
ABOUT ARLO & OLIVE
We’re reminiscent of whimsical 70s-esque silhouettes and retrofied prints, yet grounded in wearability.
This is where your on-duty wardrobe meets your off-duty hiatus wear, for a wardrobe kept streamlined but ready for any occasion. Keep in close reach at home, or top-of-suitcase for spontaneous one-nighters and weekend beach jaunts.
Arlo & Olive is imagined in Melbourne, but crafted in Indonesia by a small and Aussie-owned factory. We’re unwaveringly dedicated to supporting Indonesia’s standards of business ethics, and lessening our impact on the earth, one garment at a time.
The accessible price point of our offsite manufacturing means purchasing your favourite Arlo & Olive piece won’t cost you last week’s payslip.
MEET SHAINA, OUR FOUNDER AND DESIGNER
Welcome to Arlo & Olive, where fashion meets sustainability. A&O was born out of my deep passion for fashion and love for our planet. Since I was a little girl, I dreamt of having my own fashion label and after receiving my first sewing machine at the age of 10, I have been hooked ever since!
At Arlo & Olive, we place a strong emphasis on sustainability, which is reflected in every aspect of our brand, right down to the stickers we use to pack our orders. I believe in crafting pieces that not only look good, but also make a positive impact on the environment.
Our garments are handcrafted in Indonesia by a beautiful Aussie-run factory, ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions for all involved. We release small drops of our collections to reduce waste and provide you with an exclusive range of clothing to wear and cherish.
We can't wait to see you in our clothing and we are confident that you'll look amazing in our sustainably made pieces. Shop our collections now and join us on our journey towards a more sustainable future!
