Melbourne, Australia headquartered ABMT Textiles has launched an in-stock program featuring its well-known wool-based products, as well as its certified organic cotton-based textiles. Revered for its ethical, traceable Merino innovations, ABMT is a vertically integrated manufacturer best known for its wool-based fabrics.

Located in Melbourne and Shanghai, China, ABMT delivers the finest, most innovative natural fibre circular knits, the company explains. Continually inventing new and trending textiles, the company is proud of its record in significantly lowering the environmental impact normally associated with textile manufacturing and also for its use of sustainable products and practices, it adds.

ABMT is a worldwide leader in natural fibres, so it’s no surprise their certified organic cotton products are just as remarkable as their wools.

From research to testing to production to distribution, ABMT implements sustainable and responsible practices at all levels of its operations, the company says. It also brings an equally high level of ecological care with regard to its certified organic cotton products.

“We’re clearly known for creating unrivalled wool and wool blends,” said Julian Collins, Sales Manager at ABMT. “But we’ve also spent years applying our profound understanding of organic materials to generate some of the world’s finest cotton, and we’re proud to say we’ve been doing it all right here in Melbourne. At the end of the day, we want our new and existing customers to feel something they’ve never felt when it comes to this staple fibre.”

To give global customers access to the in-stock program, ABMT is working through its trusted partner Concept III, a textile sourcing firm renowned for its high standards in evaluating mills and manufacturers.

“ABMT is a worldwide leader in natural fibres, so it’s no surprise their certified organic cotton products are just as remarkable as their wools,” said Chris Parkes, President of Concept III. “Having all these organic cotton innovations on hand and in stock is a game changer. I think apparel brands are really going to be blown away by the impressive array of textures and features found in ABMT’s cotton-based products.”

Since 1983, Concept III has been at the forefront of the performance textile industry. Working closely with mills located throughout the world, Concept III sources, develops, and produces new fabric-based solutions for consumer apparel brands. Its partners include innovators such as Dry-Tex, Kingwhale, and ABMT. A company with a global reach, Concept III has offices in North America and Europe.
