WITJUTI

You’ve never worn anything quite like bamboo clothing from Witjuti 

It’s softer than silk, more breathable than cotton, and eco-conscious to boot – bamboo clothing from Witjuti is eco fashion like no other. Witjuti’s bamboo clothing can be worn for any occasion and can be mixed and matched in styles that are timeless and classic. Bamboo clothing from Witjuti for Women and Men is the ideal travel wear, yoga wear, maternity wear and simply stylish everyday wear..

OUR NAME

Witjuti (pronounced “wicheddy”) is the Indigenous spelling of the Australian Larvae – Witchetty Grub, which lives in the roots of some acacia trees and particularly in the roots of the Witchetty Bush, found in Central Australia. As it is symbolic of natural Australia, it only seems natural for an Australian clothing label to be called Witjuti.

We design with a strong emphasis on celebrating and respecting Indigenous Australia, and by naming each product using traditional Australian languages, Witjuti embraces the enduring spiritual connection to the land.

WHY BAMBOO?

Well to name just a few of the environmental benefits, Bamboo is biodegradable, has an extremely fast regenerative rate, and requires significantly less water for growth than most fabrics. In addition, Bamboo is antibacterial, naturally moisture-wicking to reduce wetness and odour, and is one of the softest, most luxuriously comfortable fabrics on the planet.

Witjuti fabrics are knitted in batches to our specifications in an OEKO-TEX -100 certified facility, and our colours are special blends. That’s why our Black is so strong and deep, and our Charcoal is as beautiful as a stormy sea.  Our vivid Coral and Magenta just vibrate with energy. 

ETHICS

At Witjuti we strive to produce as little waste as possible, and we examine our environmental footprint every step of the way, always seeking new ways to improve our sustainability. We also embrace the human side of ethical business policies, believing strongly in fair wages and ethical treatment of workers. 

That’s why all Witjuti clothing is made in an IMO certified factory, which means all employees are treated respectfully, and never overworked or underpaid.

Sustainability meets style– it’s a simple motto, and it’s one that Witjuti vows to stand by.
