Our Story

We were founded by Nick Savaidis in Melbourne, Australia, back in 2005. Nick had one wish: to buy apparel and footwear which didn’t involve child labour or underpaid workers, and didn’t wreck the environment. In short, he wanted to buy ethical clothing, but found that no such brand existed.

By creating fair, transparent, environmentally-friendly supply chains, Etiko has directly supported the human rights and labour conditions of countless cotton growers, rubber tappers, apparel workers, shoe manufacturers and sports ball producers living in India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. This has positive flow-on effects for these workers’ families and their communities.

Today, we remain one of Australia’s leading ethical fashion brands. We have certifications from dozens of ethical, environmental and organic certifiers, such as Fairtrade, B Corp and the Global Organic Textile Standard. And we’re proud to do it all with some of the best-looking streetwear you’ll find on the market.
