Nurturing genuine, long-term focussed and mutually beneficial relationships with our suppliers is a cornerstone of our sustainability vision. Our swimwear and resortwear suppliers hold internationally recognised certifications BSCI, S8000 and Oekotex. We are currently working with our core suppliers to achieve full supply chain tracebility, of all elements within our garments, from start to end. We look forward to sharing more on this with you shortly.

All peony printed fabrics are digitally printed, as opposed to screen printed. This method avoids the need for plastic screens which are often disposed of after a single print run and colourant baths which require chemical cleaning. Digital printing allows shorter fabric runs and therefore reduced fabric waste, as well as reduced water consumption as the finished fabric requires less washes. Each season we complete AZO testing of our fabrics to ensure they are free from harmful chemicals and are REACH compliant.

We use compostable and biodegradable packaging throughout our supply chain. Our garment bags are made using plant-based materials such as cornstarch and wheat, replacing synthetic materials such as petroleum. These bags break down easily and can be placed in your compost bin. We believe all the little things make a big difference over time. Our swimwear hygiene liners are made from FSC certified wood-based bioplastic, making them compostable and biodegradable. Our swing tags are made from recycled and FSC certified wood. The mini bags (that carry removable straps for our bikini tops) are made from compostable and biodegradable materials.

Our garments are made from innovative sustainable fabrics and require advanced technical manufacturing. We are always researching new advancements, however at this time, Australia does not have the capability to turn raw nylon fibre into yarn, and therefore we are unable to produce our fabrics locally. We work closely alongside the leading fabric mills in Italy and China that are at the forefront of this technology. By manufacturing in China, in close proximity to our fabric mills, we are able to keep our supply chains as short as possible. This minimises our carbon footprint which we quantify and offset as a certified Carbon Neutral organisation. Wherever we can, we work with local suppliers, such as our sample room seamstress and eco-printers.
