Eco Sustainable Swimwear from Indonesia

Can a bikini really change the world, can swimming trunks save our seas? The answer very simply is yes! If you haven’t heard about the huge movement of sustainable (Slow) fashion then let us introduce you to our favourite Indonesian sustainable swimwear brands perfect for a trip to our earth friendly resort!


What is Slow Fashion?

“Slow fashion  is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.” Good On You 


Here are the top five Indonesian brands making big waves with their eco-swimwear collections – and don’t worry they all offer international shipping!


1) Undersea Wear X Maja

Maja 3

Although Undersea Wear has been around for a while they recently launched a new collaboration with Maja (influencers Mariefe and Jake Snow) called the Dreamsea collection.

It is a match made in heaven when it comes to the environment as both brands share the same
mission around helping to clear polluted oceans and reducing the negative impact that
plastic is having on the environment. The most amazing thing - this range is made from
recycled fishnets!

Why we love: For each sale they plant a coral.https://www.underseawear.com/collections/retro-wave


2) Rimmba

Rimmba

Based in Bali, Rimmba offers a good selection of simple swimwear in lots of different colours all made from ECONYL, a regenerated nylon made entirely from ocean and landfill waste. As they say “Join us as we try to do better for the women we dress, and the planet we love.”

Why we love: They use a traditional Indonesian natural dye technique
thereby preserving Indonesia’s cultural heritage.

3) Halla Halla

Halla Halla

Fun and funky, this brand offers a wide range of prints, colours and styles for every body type. Another label that is using fabric that starts its journey as fishing nets, and discarded ocean waste then recycled into regenerated nylon. Halla Halla also ensures their sewing staff have good working conditions and are well paid as part of their ethical practices.

Why we love: The mix and match tops and bottoms and also the matching mums
and kids suits.

4) Thaikila

Thaikila

Celebrating masterful craftsmanship and fashion technology the Thaikila collection offers a variety of embellished and creative styles to suit even the most discerning fashionista. The fabrics in this beautiful range are made from discarded plastic bottles that are transformed, they even have an ultra-soft vegan faux suede! The designs are full of detail and you can really see how beauty, innovation and sustainability are at the core of this brand.

Why We love: Each purchase comes with a reusable pouch, hand-made in
their factory, to avoid plastic packaging.

5) Salt and Coco

Salt and Coco

In their words “Saving the world one bikini at a time.” True to this mission, this brand is focused on zero waste products, respecting their workers and caring for the planet, all while creating their flirty swim collection.

Why We love: Their rainbow of bikini options and the stylish men’s range.

Bonus Brands for the Gents - We didn’t want to gentleman to feel left out so we have included a couple of options for sustainable men’s swimwear. While these two companies are not
based in Indonesia they both use recycled ocean waste to make their collection of swim trunks for men.
