CAVES COLLECT is an independently owned Australian label that has built a worldwide community of people who appreciate the CAVES ethos of building a considered wardrobe of classics made from beautiful natural fabrics. 

Since its inception in 2014, the label has worked with a small network of Australian makers to craft ready to wear clothing and leather goods. The CAVES aesthetic is characterised by a relaxed approach to tailoring, celebrating the unparalleled qualities of natural fabrics and Vegetable Tanned leather which the label sources from historic mills and tanneries in Australia, Italy and Japan. 

Founded in 2014 by Johanna Ryle-Howe and Sarah Russell. The label is now owned and run by Johanna after Sarah left the business to pursue other creative endeavours in 2022.

"Today we have built a network of relationships with amazing craftspeople in Melbourne and we proudly produce 100% of Caves Collect clothing, knitwear and leather goods right here in Melbourne. It is important to us to have personal relationships with the people who make our designs and to have the peace of mind that they are being paid a fair and living wage and working in safe working conditions in line with Australian labour standards." - Johanna Ryle-Howe
