Salubrious Hour came to life early 2018 when founders Sarah and Billy searched for a platform to display their own hand drawn art. Deep discussion over a few cold cans and a warm campfire one night ignited the brand.
Independently owned and operated from the South Australian coastal town of Robe, all the products are designed by us.
Like most young people of today we are environmentally conscious and constantly strive to improve in this area. With a strong emphasis on our local community and surrounds, Salubrious Hour is a laid back coastal brand with big dreams.
When it comes to bringing the customer unique and fun fashion pieces, Salubrious Apparel is passionate about the finding the best materials and most ethical procedures.
As serious as we are about growing our label and business, we are just as serious about doing this is in a way that leaves little to no negative impact.
To begin with our suppliers are socially responsible, being a proactive member of the Fair Wear Foundation since early 2006. They follow this social responsibility criteria:
● No use of child labour
● No use of forced labour
● Safe and healthy working conditions
● Legal labour contracts
● Payment of living wage
● Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
● No discrimination against employees
● No excessive hours of work
All of our pieces are sourced through sustainable manufacturing, meet the organic textile standards, are tested for harmful substance and printed sustainably. Where some may think these steps are excessive what we see is a product of much higher quality and also a product that respects people and our worth.
Definitely in our eyes and we hope in the eyes of our customers it’s worth it.
