Who We Are
Tas Textiles’ wide range of knitwear products are sold Australia wide. They are manufactured using the highest quality Australian wool and wool blends. All Tas Textiles knitwear proudly carries the Australian Made logo and is made with pride by a team of dedicated and caring people. Tas Textiles has attained Quality Assurance with ISO 9001-2015 Certification.
Our family of Envirowoolly® child-safe soft toys is growing constantly. These cute and cuddly animals, representing a range Australian fauna and birds, are soft to touch, comforting, and the best part is they are filled with softly shredded recycled wool from the production of our famous woollen jumpers, which would otherwise end up in landfill.
As a Special Work of the St Vincent de Paul Society, Tas Textiles’ founding purpose was, and continues to be, to provide employment and training for people with intellectual disabilities and to be self-funding through the knitwear place of work. As much a community as a workplace, Tas Textiles endeavours to be like a family to its employees, many of whom have worked for the company for decades. Tas Textiles is an Australian Disability Enterprise.
