About the Brand

Carlie Ballard is an incredibly-transparent Australian fashion brand advocating for ethical and sustainable practices, and quality, independent design. Carlie, based in New South Wales, is a founding director of the Clean Cut Fashion Association, Australia’s ethical and sustainable fashion association. 

Carlie’s collections are trans-seasonal, easy to wear, and exceptionally tailored. Each garment is made using individually dyed yarns and traditional wooden hand looms, powered by master artisans in Southern India. You can feel and see the love and artistry in each piece.

Garments are sewn in a small NGO workshop in Lucknow India, which provides training, excellent working conditions and fair pay to the women it employs.

Carlie Ballard is also a low-waste brand. She avoids the use of unnecessary hardware, uses all biodegradable packaging and orders small quantities of fabric at a time, minimising fabric waste and often making to order (for businesses like us!).
