About us

Lemon by ACK is an independent, female-founded company established in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We are a sustainable fashion label that is owned and designed by Amelia Clair Kortum, an Australian-born designer who was raised in Malaysia.

Our goal is to create beautiful, timeless apparel and accessories, made with the utmost care for our planet. We do this by up-cycling textiles as much as possible and exploring new avenues of repurposing scrap fabric.

We have made it our mission as a sustainable, slow-fashion company to use ethically sourced products and materials such as 100% organic cotton to help support the structure of our products. This fabric is certified with control union certifications such as GOTS & OCS.

Our products are manufactured at a local sewing facility in Malaysia which aims to foster life-long skills and knowledge to displaced individuals in Malaysia in order for them to better their lives. Our sewing centre is run by a non-profit NGO Life 2 Life El Shaddai that works closely with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). We not only want to produce clothing and accessories with purpose but also to ensure that we have helped someone along the way.

We want our customers to wear their clothes with pride, as Lemon by ACK is always committed to complete transparency and will always hold sustainability, community engagement and ethical production as our core values.
