Hello! We’re By Indeko, an Australian-based social impact business harnessing the power of fashion to drive greater disability representation and inclusion in the arts and mainstream media.
Like you, our founders Chloe and Joelle, are driven by the desire to mobilise positive conversations around disability, celebrate diversity and foster a community that is inclusive. At By Indeko we aim to empower our community of #ChangeMakers to create positive social change and lean into disability advocacy - one fashion item at a time.
By Indeko’s approach to creating a positive social impact reaches far beyond the conversations that our platform creates. Our partnerships with like-minded organisations enables us to support employment opportunities for people with a disability throughout our supply chain. We also donate a portion of all of our online sales to high needs disability support services such as community hubs and independent living and in home support. This allows our community to create a meaningful impact with every purchase.
Since 2019, we have been committed to creating an inclusive future in fashion; one that represents the rich diversity of our community. In order to achieve this we are always listening, learning and evolving to ensure that we respond to issues of inequality or misrepresentation in an authentic and meaningful way.
Together, we are on a journey towards a future that is diverse and inclusive of people with a disability. This is just the beginning.
At By Indeko, our approach to creating a positive social impact extends beyond mobilising positive conversations around disability and celebrating diversity on our platform.
Our meaningful partnerships
Currently, people with a disability experience lower rates of labour force participation and employment compared to those without a disability. These lower rates of employment are often the result of complex barriers to social inclusion and skills development.
We are proud to say that we have partnered with other social enterprises throughout our supply chain to support employment opportunities that empower people with disability every step of the way. From product design and production with the artist at Monte Lupo Art Studio to warehousing and logistics with SendAble, we are committed to enacting social action against labour force participation barriers experienced by people with a disability.
SendAble is a third-party logistics company that is focused on increasing long-term employment opportunities and skills in warehousing and logistics for people with a disability. Through our partnership with Sendable we ensure that each order placed with By Indeko is #packedwithpurpose by one of the SendAble team members. When opening your By Indeko order, take a moment to consider the positive impact and employment opportunities that your order has provided for the team at SendAble.
Monte Lupo provides meaningful employment opportunities to people living with a disability who are interested in a career in the arts. We are proud to say that our handmade collections are made by the artists at Monte Lupo Art Studio. Your support allows us to grow our commitment to supporting additional employment and training opportunities for Monte Lupo's artists.
At By Indeko we believe in giving back, which is why we donate a portion of all online sales to fund high needs disability support services. These services include community hubs and independent living and in-home support which allow people living with a disability to enjoy increased independence while accessing any required support.
Not only are By Indeko orders packed with purpose, they are also consciously filled and shipped with the environment in mind. We have ensured that our custom mailer box and tissue paper is 100% recyclable, with our suppliers using UV and soy-based ink as any eco-alternative to carbon based chemicals.
