Junk Republic believes in keeping things local and are therefore Australian made. The brand believes making things in Australia not only supports the local economy, but helps them ensure the integrity of their supply chain. This includes no child labour and fair wages for all.

The brand’s fabric printing is done in Sydney by a company that is ethically certified.
Junk Republic’s fabric is all sustainable/recycled, such as their regenerated nylon made from abandoned fishing nets. The brand is currently designing new products made from their offcuts and ultimately aim to source Australian yarn for their products as they expand their range. Junk republic utilises carbon offset shipping, compostable mailers and recycled tissue paper printed with soy based inks.

With a gorgeous print and legs that stay put and won’t ride up when running or cycling, these shorts are truly flattering. They slim my thighs with slight compression and then have an incredible waistband – first still with compression over my stomach and then with a lovely wide band which comes just above my belly button. There is magically no ridge on my front or sides and I feel suddenly toned and taut. A real confidence booster, I love them.

I’m in love with the fun and vibrant prints of these brilliant eco shorts. I receive SO many compliments when wearing mine (Amazon print)! They fit wonderfully and I love how the grip prevents them from riding up when exercising. I appreciate that the shorts are made from Econyl (regenerated nylon made from abandoned fishing nets) and that the brand supports She’s the First.
