Ace of Something

Animals: 1/5
Circularty: 1/5

Melbourne-based millinery Ace of Something creates timeless hats using traditional methods and it requires more transparency on its supply chain.

Ace of Something states it is looking for ways to improve its social and environmental impact. The products made are designed to last and their plastic-free packaging is designed to be reused. Materials used for products are mostly wool and vegan leather. While wool is biodegradable, the standard of animal welfare for sheep in Australia is controversial and sheep farming uses methods that harm the environment. Although vegan leather contributes to the cut-down of animal cruelty, it is not a perfect material in terms of environmentalism as it requires plasticisers and toxic chemicals to create the leather-like feel. The brand believes that its workers deserve a safe and fair working environment and they regularly liaise with them, however no certifications are in place and manufacture location is not stated. The website does not list enough supply chain information; origin of textile fabric, textile production, manufacturing, social, environmental and economic impact.
