At INTACT we’re on a mission to support Australian wool growers and pave the way for a brighter future in fashion. Our commitment to sustainability is not just a goal, it’s weaved within our brand DNA. Our commitment is first and foremost in our name. We believe in a circular future for fashion where responsibility, conscious choices and education lead the way.
INTACT heroes Australian Merino wool, a 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre made with a simple blend of air, water and grass.
Natural fibres are the foundation of our range and for good reason, we can keep our environmental footprint to a minimum and focus on quality materials that can give back to our wearers. By championing this homegrown fibre, we’re not only supporting Australian wool growers but a better fashion future.
We live in a world fueled by hyper-consumption where it’s estimated women only wear 20% of their wardrobe, 80% of the time.
INTACT is built on the foundations of a capsule wardrobe offering a select range of everyday wardrobe staples.
We hero a message of wear more, wash less, buy better and buy less. We’re not here to add to the noise, instead, we want to encourage people to rethink their wardrobe foundations and make informed decision when it comes to fashion choices.
We also work closely with our manufacturers to reduce the need for unnecessary waste throughout the supply chain, such as reducing the amount of single use poly bags and limited production runs with predominately knitted designs which allows us to minimise waste and use yarn efficiently, reducing our environmental impact.
STARTING WITH THE END IN MIND
Our design philosophy centres on creating timeless pieces that stand the test of time. We believe in quality over quantity, ensuring every garment we produce has lasting value.
Merino wool, a 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre, is the foundation of our range, our care and garment labels are made from 100% cotton, and all our packaging is biodegradable.
We are conscious not to add unnecessary embellishments and design features that will either contaminate or hinder a garments ability to be recycled or repurposed at the end of its life. By crafting durable, versatile pieces, we contribute to a circular ecosystem where longevity and style go hand in hand.
We are also committed to offering our customers a viable end-of-life solution for unwanted or damaged garments. That's why we have partnered with Little Forest Compost to test the effects our garments have on the soil. If successful, this will ensure our capsule range has a complete, INTACT circular solution.

INTACT Founder & Creative Director
When it comes to Merino wool clothing, the perks are aplenty. Not only are they naturally stain and odour-resistant, allowing you to wear more and wash less, sometimes getting up to 20 wears before they need a bit of a TLC, when this happens, hand washing is a simple, easy, and time efficient way to care for your Merino wool clothes.
When it comes to maintaining the quality and longevity of our favourite merino wool clothing, proper storage is key. In order for our knitwear to last, we need to give them proper love and attention to protect them and ensure we can continue to wear them for many seasons to come. See our product care page for more.
As winter lands on our doorstep, it's time to start thinking about our winter wardrobe essentials. And if you're looking for a fabric that's not only warm but also comfortable and gentle on the environment, then Merino wool should be at the top of your list.
