how we make our swimwear
FLIPFLOP AND TREACLE
BE A WILD ONE.......join the revolution
8 million tons of waste goes into our ocean every year!
We want to be part of the solution to solving that problem and protecting the ocean and everything in it,
we do this in several different ways:
🌊 Our swimwear fabric is made from regenerated fishing nets salvaged from the sea, and recycled plastic bottles. We only use certified regenerated and recycled fabrics by Econyl and Repreve.
🌊We donate 20,000 rupiah from each sale to underwater. conservation and the protection of sharks.
🌊We are closed loop fashion, meaning we design classic, timeless pieces that are made to last but when they do eventually come to the end of their lives , return them to us and we will up-cycle them, making them truly sustainable and avoiding landfill.
🌊We do not use any plastic packaging. Instead you will receive your order in a handwoven palm box made by local villagers, something that you can use and reuse.
Our swimwear designs are classic cuts, designed to be your essentials, that can me matched with anything and become your "go to" pieces.
We also design intimates, bras, pants and slips made from organic and sustainable fabrics dyed only with plant-based dyes. Fabrics such as Tencel, organic cotton and Linen.
We are a small company that wants to do the right thing. All of our garments are cut and sewn by hand, with a lot of care, by our friend Pak Ajik and his wife in Bali.
We are a slow fashion brand and are strong advocates of ethical practises in all of our endeavours. We have a thrift section in our stores it's important for us to use what is already in existence where we can, our thrift section is a curated collection on pre-loved clothes, we tend to have lots of linen, cotton and muslin pieces, and from every piece sold we donate 20, 000 rupiah to local charities in Bali (supporting disabled children and impoverished people, to share the love 🖤).
