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 fabrics being GOTS certified for 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.
Our current cotton fabric is knitted in China.
Our sustainable techno-fabric, made of a ECONYL® 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.
Our first swimwear range is manufactured in an ethical grade factory in Guangzhou, China. We had the factory audited by Intertek - auditors for 30,295 factories in apparel worldwide.
Our factory sits at 87% in the green for ethics, sustainability, staff, processes, work hours, operations, emergencies etc. That is, 87% higher standards than the average apparel factory. The factory audit can be provided upon request.
Our packaging consists of a recycled kraft box which is decorated with eco ink with recycled white tissue paper and our eco mailer bags made from 100% recycled poly also decorated with eco ink. The source for all materials can be provided upon request.
Once again, we are not saying this is 100% sustainable as the most sustainable purchase is no purchase at all. Compared to most swimwear brands we use a more eco-friendly option in all our packaging.
