On the hunt for the perfect gift? Something that combines style, purpose, and a commitment to a good cause?

Here are 12 reasons to consider a Borne shirt as your gift this Christmas.

  1. You will be supporting local business!

Borne is more than just a clothing brand; it's a homegrown Australian business that thrives on local spirit. By choosing a Borne shirt as a gift, you're not only giving a unique piece of Australian fashion but also supporting a local business that owes itself to the community it was built in. 

  1. It means you can wear your heart on your sleeve!

Borne isn't just about fashion; it's about making a real difference. With half of our profits dedicated to the fight against malaria, your gift becomes a powerful tool in the battle against a devastating disease. It's a gift that not only looks good but also does good, contributing to a cause that saves lives and brings hope to those in need.

  1. It keeps you safe!

Borne's mozzie-free tees are a practical gift that goes beyond fashion. Equipped with mosquito-repellent technology, these shirts ensure you stay protected from itchy bites. Whether you're out and about on a bushwalk or simply enjoying a picnic in the park, you'll be shielded from the frustration of mozzie bites, allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors this summer worry-free.

  1. It doesn’t look too shabby!

Borne's shirts are a little bit different in how they feel (super soft) and how they work (super well), but design is still a key part of their production.

  1. Gifts with purpose:

Social enterprise isn’t just about removing the bad, but adding the good. That’s why we’ve built as much good as we can into every part of our process, from how they’re made to how they’re packed and how they’re shipped. When you gift a Borne shirt, you're providing your loved ones with a gift that’s functional and carefully thought through.

  1. You are supporting ethical manufacturing!

Borne is dedicated to ethical manufacturing practices. By choosing a Borne shirt, you support a brand that sources from a FairWear Foundation approved manufacturer. This means living up to certain standards, and ensuring a fair standard of living for workers. When you buy any product you become part of its supply chain and it’s only fair that you know where it’s coming from. You can read more about our supply chain and about why we put so much value on it here.

  1. Quality Materials!

No matter how good they look, clothes always come down to quality. Our rule is simple – our shirts are all made from 100% organic cotton (some even use recycled scraps!) High quality raw materials mean high quality products, it’s as simple as that. Our shirts are meant to last a long time – we want them to be the shirt you still have in your drawers in 20 years’ time.

  1. Supporting sustainability!

It’s no use trying to benefit people living with malaria if we ruin the world they live in, that’s why we offset our carbon footprint, ship carbon neutrally, and purchase organic cotton. We’re making sustainable purchasing accessible. Gifting a Borne shirt means an investment in a future of ethical manufacture and sourcing.

  1. Australian designed!

Borne's designs are inspired by the bush, the beach, and the streets of Newy. Our aim is to capture the Australian landscape in our designs. When you gift a Borne shirt, you're sharing a piece of our little part of the world.

  1. Community Involvement:

Borne collaborates with Avenue, a social enterprise fulfilment service that empowers people with living disabilities. By choosing Borne, you're contributing to a more inclusive and caring community, and your gift extends its positive impact far beyond the shirt itself, symbolising your commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.

  1. You will be reducing textile waste (at up to 50% OFF!)

Our REBORNE collection is clothing with imperfect printing but perfect repellent. It includes clothing that didn’t meet our quality requirements, but that is still road-worthy. By choosing these shirts as gifts, you're helping to reduce textile waste, ensuring that clothing finds a better home instead of becoming waste.

  1. Perfect for adventures!

Borne shirts are not just for everyday wear; they're made for adventures. Effortlessly styled for hiking, picnics, and walks, these tees are a versatile choice for anyone with a love for outdoor escapades. They're as ready for adventure as you are.
