Hello and welcome to The Moose Hub!
We are an eco lifestyle store based in Bowral in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW. We showcase ethical & eco friendly clothing, gift and homewares, providing a main street hub for sustainable living, thinking, giving and inspiring. We also run events in the Highlands promoting eco and ethical fashion, books and people.
Our online store extends our love of sustainable living across Australia and the world.
We aim for style and substance - carefully selecting pieces that we know will make you look great and look after our earth at the same time. We specialise in trans-seasonal, comfortable and affordable pieces in natural fibres, fun and thoughtful gifts and quality and long-lasting homewares.
Our aim is that all our products will reflect our values:
- We care about the people & communities that make our products and aim to make a positive difference in their lives
- We value the natural environment in everything we do
- We love recycling, upcycling and re-using
