Raw Fibre owner Tracy Wright has a passion for natural fibres and a vision for slow fashion.

“I design and make quality women’s garments using predominantly natural fibres,” she said.

“Raw Fibre is an emerging business that manufactures locally.  

“We have a shop in Armidale and also have an online store.”

Tracy said she had the dream of opening her business “in the back of my mind for many years”.

“I am passionate about quality and natural fibres and am a strong advocate for the slow fashion movement,” she said.

Raw Fibre sells high quality Australian-made garments and gives customers the option to have something custom made.

“I love seeing the joy my garments bring to my clients,” Tracy said.

“The business also gives me the opportunity to work with such gorgeous fabrics.”

Working in the textiles industry was challenging and any point of difference offers advantages.

“I have started making a lot of the garments myself,” she said. “I also give my clients the option to either purchase off the rack or to have one of my designs made from other fabrics I have available in store.”

Raw Fibre will be located at site SA/70 and have some amazing AgQuip specials available including half price pure wool garments.

The shop can be found at 165 Beardy St, Armidale, or visit www.rawfibre.com.au.
