Australian retailer Jeanswest has released its third 'Homespun' collection in a year with the launch of Homespun Vintage.

Encompassing a range of men's t-shirts, each style is designed in Australia made from cotton jersey.

Jeanswest has partnered with local suppliers OCC Apparel based in New South Wales as well as ABMT Textiles and Richmond Laundry, both based in Victoria, to manufacture the range.

Each garment has been individually dyed to achieve a unique wash effect and evoke a vintage character.

The range has also been accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA).

OCC Apparel's Andrew Quinn has applauded Jeanswest for its long term comittment to onshore manufacturing.

“The Jeanswest product team have a great level of understanding around the implications of producing a collection locally and in smaller factories, and they showed a great willingness to adapt business processes for a 100% Australian made outcome.

“Jeanswest have a smart and savvy approach to transparency, and we are delighted to partner with a business as proud of our Australian story as we are.”

Jeanswest GM of product Adam Lloyd said the business will continue to drive transparency in its supply chain.

“To continually improve transparency is at the heart of our long-term business strategy, and regularly delivering capsules that are completely designed and made in Australia is just one example of our ongoing commitment to driving progress and innovation in this area.”

Jeanswest's Homespun Vintage collection will be available across its 230 Australian stores.

T-shirts are priced at $39.99.
