OCEAN GEM SWIM is ethically hand made in Australia for the conscious woman.
They are very passionate about the environment and the future of our planet so they ensure to make conscious decisions when it comes to the manufacturing and production of their swimwear.
Their new collection (launching today) is made using an advanced recycled Carvico techno-fabric made in Italy using the below fibres:
78% Recycled Nylon – Consisting of ECONYL® – a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from pre and post-consumer waste such as fishnets and other end of life nylon materials.
22% Xtra Life LYCRA® – This high quality fibre resists fabric breakdown more than 5 times longer than your average chlorine-resistant spandex and has no significant fibre breakage even after 240 hours of exposure.
All of their bikinis are made in Australia by Gemma (owner) or by other talented seamstresses. They take pride in having them made in Australia and to give women the opportunity to express their creativity through sewing. As they produce their swimwear in very small batches or make to order, each piece is carefully cut from the fabric to ensure there are minimal scraps. Any cut offs are then used for smaller things such as straps. This also means that they are not left with a large number of stock that needs to be discarded. They strive to create timeless, high quality pieces that will make their consumer feel great and last them endless seasons.
