At bond-eye, our values are stitched firmly into the fabric of our eco swimwear + represent our passion + commitment to the ocean + the beautiful Australian landscape. Just like you—each piece in our Seasonal Eco collection is unique, limited edition + beautifully hand made in Australia. Crafted from regenerated nylon + manufactured in our Italian mill using environmental processes, so you can make a bold statement with the Earth in mind.
In 2018 we began our sustainability journey by taking honest + transformative steps towards a more responsible future by developing eco-friendly swimwear + recycled swimwear collections.
Every piece in our bond-eye swim collection is curated for a truly seasonal limited edition offer + handmade in Sydney, Australia, + we are proud to be working with female-led communities in our factory, dye-house + fabric mill. We’ve also zeroed in on every link in our production chain: learning, reinventing + making conscious efforts to minimise our impact on the environment.
Our artisans utilise solar energy where possible to power the hand-dye process + this collaborative approach allows us to experiment with new techniques + colours that complement each collection + keep bond-eye swim at the forefront of sustainable design.
By creating unsized swimwear, we’re also cutting down on excessive stock + reusing fabric off-cuts, with 80% of our range shaped from regenerated nylon derived from pre-consumer raw materials that would ordinarily go to waste. This recycled yarn is manufactured exclusively by a premium Italian mill using leading environmental processes which include reduced carbon dioxide emissions, 100% renewable energy + less water consumption, creating covetable + unique sustainable swimwear.
We are equally committed to our sustainable packaging, with all bond-eye tags, labels + trims are made from recycled materials., + our garment bags are produced from plant-based materials that can be composted in home waste, + without leaching harmful chemicals into the soil.
We have also partnered with UPPAREL, a company that reimagines the life of unwanted textiles + turns them into useful products. Last year, we prevented 4,750.6 kg of textiles from being sent to landfill. This has also resulted in the prevention of 16,627.1 kgs of greenhouse gases from polluting our atmosphere.
Since 2018, we have also partnered with i=Change, donating over $25,000, with $1 from every sale to three charities focused on environmental issues, women’s well-being + child welfare.
