About Us

Embracing striking colours and funky prints, Olive the Label creates quality, handcrafted fashion, with a quirky aesthetic.

The fashion industry is a leading contributor to pollution so, at Olive the Label, we do everything we can to minimise our footprint, saving the environment one outfit at a time.

Every aspect of Olive the Label, from designing, to cutting, to construction is lovingly done by hand in Brisbane, Australia by Courtney and a small team of seamstresses. Crafted from vintage and dead-stock fabrics, our designs are determined by what we have on hand. Patterns are shaped to fit the fabric and optimise fabric consumption.

We make the most of our fabric, transforming discarded scraps into smaller items and accessories. As firm believers of slow fashion, many of our garments are made on-demand, so we can tailor to your measurements.

At Olive the Label we are all about being transparent with our customers. That’s why we promise to:

·      only source sustainable fabrics (vintage and reclaimed fabrics) and give them a new life without letting them go to waste.

·      support local businesses and brands.

·      minimise the use of plastic in our business.

·      minimise waste by donating fabrics that don't get used and by using left over scraps to make smaller items/accessories.

Thank you for supporting Australian handmade, ethical manufacturing and enjoy wearing garments made with love and care!
