Our aim in our manufacturing, production, delivery and recycling of our products is to do so in a manner that considers the effects on the environment and what we can do to minimise this.
This is why in our fabric, packaging, manufacturing, post-use and community contributions we have considered the alternative to what other organisations do.
We are committing to all future apparel and swimwear collections and Australian made.
But, at the end of the day, no purchase is the best purchase.
All our apparel is all made from natural 100% cotton in an Ethical Accredited Australia factory in Melbourne, Australia or in Geelong, Australia.
Our Hayley + Laz collection is made from REPREVE created using recycled PET bottles.
Our 2019 swim collection was made from ECONYL®, which uses regenerated Nylon consisting of 78% recycled polyamide (from plastics and fishing nets) and 22% elastane. All fabric is manufactured in Italy.
Thanks to its innovative construction, our fabric is twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan creams and oils than competitors’ fabrics.
All upcoming swimwear ranges including the Hayley Carey
+ Laz swimwear range is 100% made in Sydney, Australia.
Our 2019 swimwear collection was manufactured in an ethical grade factory in Guangzhou, China. We had the factory audited by Intertek - auditors for 30,295 factories in apparel worldwide. We are almost completely sold out of this collection and have not/will not use any factory outside of Australia since this collection.
Our packaging consists of a recycled kraft box or bag which is decorated with eco ink with recycled white tissue paper and our eco mailer bags made from biodegradable cornstarch. We use recycled kraft tags and cotton string on all our garments.
