Founders Andrew Quinn & Nick Barclay struggled to find ethical, sweatshop free manufacturers in Australia that produced quality t-shirts so they started their own factory in 2007.
With a small team of 20 employees, Andrew & Nick are at the forefront of quality cut & sew knit development, production & quality control, making some of the best bespoke t-shirts in the world. They are proudly accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia.
They are tireless supporters of many environmental groups & sustainable clothing brands. They also offer guidance & experience to small start up brands, like modetische! www.occapparel.com.au
