The Metta Melbourne Story


Metta Melbourne is based in Melbourne, Australia and is all about trans-seasonal, easy to wear clothing made from natural fibre fabrics. It's about pieces you want to touch, and pieces you want to wear everyday.

After years in the clothing and textile industry, we wanted to create a beautiful, comfortable, and easy to wear range. The majority of the collection can be worn day and night, summer and winter. This creates a smaller wardrobe that works twice as hard, and is perfect for travel. 

Metta is all about slow fashion that will stay with you year after year; the cuts are classic and they're made to last. It's made up of wardrobe staples that can be layered and combined in a multitude of ways. The resulting look can be whimsical to androgynous, but always effortlessly stylish.




Behind the Clothing

Our soft linen comes all the way from Lithuania, where the fiber is grown, woven into fabric, sewn into clothing, and dyed. 

We make sure that every Metta piece is pre shrunk - for easy wearing and easy care. 
Approximately a quarter of our range is made right here in Melbourne. Our silk and cotton pieces are manufactured in small, privately owned companies in India. Each of these pieces are dyed locally in Melbourne in one of the last remaining dye houses. 
Every single one of our manufacturers have a open door policy, we know them all personally and visit their factories. The prices of Metta reflect each person being paid a proper living wage.
We use our off cuts to make other smaller items like tea towels, napkins and coasters. We also construct each piece using cotton thread; this means that if your piece becomes stained you can re-dye it and give it a second life.
