Why buy sustainable or Australian swimwear brands?

With a big focus of the slow fashion industry highlighting the 'clothing' market, some people can neglect their swimwear.

We typically only wear swimwear for a few months of the year, so the right choice can last you for a long time! Make a sustainable choice for your next purchase and rock your new bikini for many Summers to come.

Supporting local brands not only reduces the carbon miles of your product, but it also supports Australian business and employees. Why can't Australia one day become the world-leader in sustainable swimwear?
