OUR SUSTAINABLE APPROACH

OUR APPROACH

CLEONIE SWIM since it's beginning has been very focused on supplying SUSTAINABLE and ALL AUSTRALIAN products to the world.

In time and with the realisation of how much damage the fashion Industry is impacting on the world, with mass waste and land fills, fast fashion is far from our beliefs we want to make even more changes.  We believe in SLOW FASHION.  Creating each order from scratch as it is placed, lowering the amount of waste in materials, and any excess stock. We take the time and care to make sure that our products are made with love, understanding and a completeness Independent Labels offer. 

There are so many options and alternatives in this industry to manufacture responsibly and with care.  We will continue to set goals to become more sustainable and ultimately make changes in our manufacturing to design our swimwear, reduce our impact, generate awareness and rally you, our lovely customer, to join us in taking action.

Here are some of the ways we’ve been shifting:

MATERIALS

We are focused on using more eco-conscious and sustainable materials, including:

-ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from fishnets and other nylon waste
-Polyester made from post consumer recycled polymers in order to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills
-H​ang​ t​a​g​s are eco-friendly and made from 80% post-consumer waste/blotter stock

MANUFACTURING

We are committed to responsible manufacturing practices, including:

-Growing our Made in the AUSTRALIA products, which currently includes our entire Swimwear line
-Every single order is 'MADE TO ORDER'.  We will cut and make your swimsuit as soon as the order comes in, which means you have the beauty of changing it if you wish- making it cheekier or bigger in the bust- whatever request you have we can try our best to achieve it for you!!
