Lush parks and historic buildings complete the picture, all folded into the elbows of the meandering Brisbane River.

As a leading australian owned brand, Gorman are committed to the social, environmental, and ethical indicators in the measure of their performance. Technically, gorman organic doesn’t only use ‘organic’ materials specifically. this means the use of organic, recycled or sustainable materials. For example, sometimes a recycled synthetic might be more environmentally sound than organic cotton. Back when the gorman organic brand was introduced in 2007, it was simply all about organic cotton, hence the brand name. but as we know, technology and time move super-quickly, and consequently, we have found other great fibres and processes that suitably fit into gorman organic. this may be for their growth, harvest and processing, or for their ethical certification.
