A true leader in the field of ethical lifestyle fashion, Untouched World™ is a sustainable lifestyle brand that celebrates living in harmony with nature. Established in the late 90s, the brand revolutionised the fashion industry by setting out to do right by people and the planet from day one. And as of 2021, Untouched World became a B Corp; a certification that verifies they’re meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability to use business as a force for good.  

Focusing on quality over quantity, they use regenerative natural fibres (such as merino, organic cotton and linen), water-based prints and earth friendly dyes, while minimising water use and maximising recycling. Not to mention their adorable kid’s collection, which, where possible, is zero-waste, crafted from ends and offcuts. And that’s not all. 

Extending their reach beyond fashion, their ProjectU™ capsule collection channels its profits to the Untouched World Foundation™ (UWF), which delivers ground-breaking programmes for students across New Zealand focused on leadership toward a sustainable future.  

Untouched Word™ is always searching for new innovations, such as shirting made from soybean and knits made from eucalyptus trees. They believe being good to the planet does not mean having to give up style and luxury. Untouched World’s beautiful garments are wardrobe staples that look great and will last for years to come. Its flagship store in Burnside showcases the full collection, much of which is made right there, within its four walls. 

Plenty to admire here in every aspect and once you’ve found that perfect addition to your wardrobe, retreat to Untouched World Kitchen to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch or coffee and a delicious morsel from the cabinet. Dine inside or alfresco in the native garden oasis. Complete with a water feature, it offers a similar sense of calm that the shop and all its being encompasses.
