Nestled between the beautiful Bellingen River and Dorrigo Mountain, Elves in the Wardrobe has called Bellingen their home town for over 3 years now. We absolutely adore the picturesque, bohemian, quirky & charming little town we call home. It is known for its charm and artistic lifestyle Australia wide.
Anyone who has been to Bellingen, will have visited the historically rich, Hammond and Wheatley Emporium building. This nineteenth century department store houses jewellery and home wares from all over the world. As well as top-class clothing ranges, right in the heart of Bellingen.
Naturally, when the offer came to present our organic cotton range for babies & kids in the Emporium’s little side shop, we couldn’t resist. On Saturday, March 4th 2017 our pop up shop opened its doors to the public. We could not be more delighted to present our range of beautiful & soft clothes from European Eco fashion labels for the next 4 weeks.
Locals as well as tourist have made their way into our shop. Taking advantage of our great sale items from last season as well as our beautiful, brand new range of warmer clothes for the new Autumn/Winter season. We are absolutely loving the extent to which people are appreciating and embracing our fair trade organic cotton clothes.
Our New Range
Our new range of organic cotton/wool clothing from German Eco fashion label loud+proud has been attracting a lot of attention.
It is wonderful for people understand & appreciate the benefits and characteristics of wool fiber:
Natural and renewable – wool is grown not made; every year sheep grow a new fleece. Wool products also use less energy than man-made fibres during manufacturing.
Sun safe – wool has naturally high UV protection.
Flame retardant – wool fibre has a higher ignition threshold than many other fibres and is flame retardant up to 600º C. It also produces less toxic fumes in a fire.
Biodegradable – when disposed of, natural wool fibre takes only a few years to decompose. With a high nitrogen content, wool can even act as a fertilizer.
Breathable – wool’s natural structure allows it to absorb and release water vapour into the atmosphere, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
Non-allergenic – wool is not known to cause allergy and does not promote the growth of bacteria. With microscopic scales, wool fibres can trap dust in the top layers until vacuumed away.
Durable and elastic – wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover and return to its natural shape. Quality wool garments look good for longer.
Easy care – modern wool can be machine-washed; retaining a small amount of natural oil. Wool fibre resists dirt and grease.
Multi-Climatic – wool acclimatizes to its surroundings.
Naturally insulating – wool can insulate the home providing and retaining warmth, and reducing energy costs.
