Concious fashion – Arnhem Clothing launches a sustainable swimwear range
It’s a wild world we live in. We’re in an era where unsustainable mass production is all around us – and it’s hard to avoid. Though, as consumers, we have a choice, and we’re lucky enough that there are heroes like Arnhem Clothing out there that allow us to be more conscious when it comes to fashion. The brand has just launched a sustainable swimwear range and we’re vibing big time.
The brand’s new swimwear range is made from 100% ECONYL nylon, which is regenerated from pre and post-consumer waste, including discarded plastic, fishing nets and fabric scraps. The sustainable pieces are long lasting, durable and more resistant to chlorine, suncreams and oils than other swim fabrics. Plus, in true Arnhem style – they are flattering, colourful and stylish. Oh, and if you purchase online, your order will arrive in a compostable post satchel.
The swimwear range forms part of Arnhem’s environmentally conscious Azalea collection, which also features a range of maxi dresses, skirts and rompers. The new drop has been designed with the planet in mind, using botanical fibres to create pieces that are both soft on your skin and on the environment. Arnhem Clothing started from humble beginnings in Byron Bay at the hands of founder and creative director Arnhem Bickley. Raised completely off the grid for the first 15 years of her life, Arnhem grew up in a tipi in the Byron Bay hinterland, where she developed her inherent talent and passion for design, creativity and colour.
