Ethical Creations


Ethical Creations is an Australasian not for profit distributor of the Choclo Project clothing range – ethically made quality clothing from Peru with a personal touch that reaches out and supports the community.

Choclo believes that there is nothing more important for a child than being creative. The major goal is to provide children with the opportunity and an environment in which to express themselves. Each garment in the Choclo range has a personal touch, inspired by the creative hand of one of the children in the program. The purchase of any Choclo product results in 5% of sales going directly to the children. This concept not only gives the children a feeling of freedom as they tap into their imagination, but also gives the children a positive way to make a living and change their lives.
