Fashion Month has wrapped up for 2018 and this year we again saw a growing movement that is fundamentally changing the industry: sustainable fashion.

The past decade has seen a significant rise in the sustainably minded consumer, one who thinks about both quality and circumstance – where the product has come from and under what conditions it was made. And an Australian brand favourite, Suro is helping lead the charge in sustainable and ethical jewellery creation.

Established in 2017 by Hannah Roche and L.D Malone, Suro is range of high end, ethically made jewellery and homewares. Informed by a background in experimental art practice, fashion and moral philosophy, the dynamic duo behind the brand are both trained in traditional silver smithing and fine woodwork and produce items from ethically sourced, raw and sustainable materials wherever possible.

Founder Hannah Roche spoke to A Conscious Collection about the mindful ethos behind the brand, “our jewellery insists on the value of human life: we are first and foremost the producer & consumer of our own products because we believe that jewellery should not only be an investment worthy of a consumer’s attention but also made to be versatile, functional, beautiful and moral. For us, this means everything is handmade in Sydney by a small team of diverse individuals with backgrounds in fashion, philosophy, design and gold smithing.”

It is this transparency from the creator’s of the brand that is having a real effect on consumers. As we all become more conscious of where our belongings come from, a more direct and open approach is the key to sustainable development.

Made exclusively from traditional methods including lost wax casting, soldering, gliding and hand polishing, Suro is something incredibly special. To ensure quality, the pair also make their products exclusively from precious metals, while the pearls are recycled from Roche’s personal collection adding a heartfelt touch. Not only is recycling and repurposing beneficial to our environment, but we love the personality these pearls add to the Suro brand – what could be better than your very own piece of Roche’s collection?

“Our jewellery insists on the value of human life: we are first and foremost the producer & consumer of our own products because we believe that jewellery should not only be an investment worthy of a consumer’s attention but also made to be versatile, functional, beautiful and moral. For us, this means everything is handmade in Sydney by a small team of diverse individuals with backgrounds in fashion, philosophy, design and gold smithing.”

Sourced from Australian suppliers only, Suro is a local business at heart with a global appeal embracing the need for striking pieces that can be passed through generations.
The minimalist, paired back designs consider every detail to create the perfect capsule piece for your collection.

Hannah Roche says, “if the lesson of modern manufacturing has taught us that objects exist to improve our lives, why don’t we care equally about how an object is made?”

This brand is the perfect antithesis to fast fashion, and we adore it.
