What is your brand's philosophy?
It is our mission to protect Mother Nature and her oceans by crafting swimwear from materials that would have otherwise ended in landfill.
Where do you get inspiration?
Anywhere- Especially places with colour. I look to architecture, art, street and vintage fashions but I find that nature has always been the most beautiful place to seek inspiration.
Tell us about yourself and your team! (how many people are on the team, how does that breakdown by race and gender, what is the base pay, what benefits are offered, and anything else you'd like to include)
As a female startup we are women led from the top down but as our team continues to grow and evolve we find ourselves working with more beautiful female souls in most areas of the business. From marketing to sales, and our inhouse team of seamstresses all refer to themselves as female but our courier and dispatch are male. There is a mix of Australians, South African, Brazilian race. As our team grows we always look for the skillset above gender or race.

Where are your final products made? (Include as many details as possible about the factory/workshop/supplier. i.e. name, website, contact information, address, number of workers, etc.)

What certifications do you have, if any?
What are you most proud of as a brand?
We continue to push boundaries to be a better company. If there is a sustainable solution; we apply it. We want to better the planet so by working with recycled materials, using eco cards for swing tags and tissue, making to order and sending any scrap materials to be made into socks is only the beginning for our journey.
What is your vision for the fashion/homeware/art industry in the future?
That we all strive to do better! That the consumer uses their purchase power to shop wisely. That change happens from the top down; where money is not the pinnacle but people's livelihoods is what is most important. That bigger companies can work towards a tighter circle and not over produce. That we all make small changes today that will impact the future.
