Ethical Sourcing and Standard Code/Policy for Mad House Mums



Mad House Mums is a proudly Australian-owned and operated company based in Queensland, Australia. We are dedicated to creating high-quality clothing while prioritizing ethical sourcing and sustainable practices. Our commitment extends from ensuring fair treatment of workers to minimizing our environmental impact. This code/policy outlines our ethical standards and practices as we strive to make a positive impact on people, communities, and the environment.


The Team at Mad House Mums:

At Mad House Mums, we prioritize ethical fashion and the fair treatment of people throughout our supply chain. Our staff, whether based in our headquarters or working remotely, are valued members of our team. We ensure fair wages, safe working conditions, and respect for all individuals involved in the production process.


Our Workspace:

In our office, we prioritize sustainability by eliminating the use of paper and plastic coffee cups. We've invested in a 'café style' coffee machine to reduce single-use waste and promote eco-friendly practices among our team members.



Since 2021, Mad House Mums has partnered with suppliers and factories in China, with whom we've developed a comprehensive Ethical Code of Practice. This code covers aspects such as fair wages, child labor, overtime, workplace safety, and environmental practices. We maintain strong relationships with our suppliers to ensure quality control and resolve any issues promptly. By nurturing these partnerships, we uphold industry standards and promote ethical manufacturing practices.



At Mad House Mums, we prioritize quality over quantity. We produce smaller runs of high-quality apparel designed to last, reducing the need for excessive consumption. Our approach deviates from the traditional fashion industry model of seasonal releases, instead focusing on consistent stock levels aligned with customer demand. By offering versatile clothing designed to withstand changing trends, we encourage mindful consumption and minimize waste.



While actively researching sustainable packaging alternatives, we currently use paper tissue and compostable, plastic-free labels and packaging. Our commitment to reducing single-use plastic aligns with our goal of minimizing environmental impact throughout our operations.



Ethical and sustainable practices are core values at Mad House Mums, and we recognize that continuous improvement is essential. We invest resources in researching and implementing best practices across our business operations, supply chain, and environmental initiatives. By prioritizing ethical sourcing and sustainable practices, we strive to make a positive difference within our community and beyond.
