Leni Swims swimwear is a carefully curated collection of sustainably and ethically made swimwear. With a focus on styles that are made to last, all of our processes, colours, quality and designs have an emphasis on creating a bikini which sustainably and ethically considers all steps in a products lifecycle.
Leni Swims never follows fashion trends, selecting colours and styles which are cult favourites that will last a lifetime, with the perfect combination of basics and exciting colours to suit every girls taste.
Leni Swims proudly makes every piece of swimwear from recycled and sustainable products. As the environment is always at the forefront of our minds we ensure that all fabrics are made from these materials. From our plain fabrics, printed fabrics and even our linings.
Our printed fabrics are made from 83% Recycled Polyester 17% Spandex. All custom swimwear is made from 79% Recycled Nylon 21% Spandex. Finally our ready made swimwear is made from 90% Recycled Nylon 10% Spandex.
Our fabrics are made from regenerated materials from abandoned fishing nets and waste from landfills and oceans around the world.
Making your swimwear
1. Fabric dying: Our fabric dying process ensures that all Leni Swims pieces are made from the highest quality materials. Once our recycled fabrics are dyed they are sent to our production facilities to be sustainably and ethically made.
2. Production: We have two production locations, for both our ready made and custom made swimwear.
To begin with, our custom swimwear is made by our wonderful seamstress Annie, in our Melbourne studio.
Our out of house manufacturing team is always making our swimwear sustainably and ethically. Based in Guangdong, China, we work with a small family run business of 10 people.
Our manufacturer is SA8000 approved. This is the number 1 social certification standard for factories. This certification means that the manufacturer has ethical and fair compliance with health and safety, child labor, forced or compulsory labor, freedom of association and right to collective bargaining, working hours, disciplinary practises, management systems and remuneration.
To start our shipping bags are made from home-compostable materials. They include corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together).
Every Leni Swims piece is packaged in a beautiful, sustainable calico bag. Designed for reusing to store your swimwear, makeup, stationary or anything you like!
