How and why the E & M journey began

Eco Wear . Organic, Environmental and totally beautiful like you. That is EDWARDS & MAY·

For about 8 years I have been making sleepwear and one off garments for friends and family, primarily using repurposed vintage fabric. Each garment was a one-off, soft and funky piece that was made to be seen in outside of the bedroom. I have always considered the idea of making for a larger audience however timing and commitments often stood in the way - not to mention a little lack of confidence.
My mindset changed in 2017 when many of my previous PJ wearers declared that they were in need of a new supply and asked if I was still doing “that pyjama thing”. I have always been a big supporter of recycled and organic fashion and often wondered how new garments could be cheaper than many of the wonderful fashion treasures in our Op Shops. I’m very mindful of the issues we have in the world from fast fashion which now accounts for the 2nd most polluting industry in the modern world. From this I vowed to only make clothing from environmental and ethical friendly fabrics.

The concept of Edwards & May is to produce well made ethical organic clothing that will last longer than its fast fashion counter part giving customers the knowledge that their purchase of a ‘Slow Fashion’ garment is a positive step in the war on ‘Fast Fashion’.

All garments are made on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands by a small team of local sewers with more experience than I have years. I am ‘sew’ grateful to be lucky enough to have such talent in our small farming community.

The Edwards & May label is a dream fast becoming a reality. We are passionate about helping our customers feel good about what they buy. The bonus of purchasing an Edwards & May garment is two-fold as not only are your new PJ’s awesome you are taking a step towards a better, more sustainable world tomorrow.
No doubt this story will evolve and change as the ‘Edwards & May’ label grows but one thing that will remain is our commitment to slow fashion. Thank you to all of my friends and supporters who helped with my confidence to launch and mostly to my husband for being there every step of the way xx
