Our Ethics

From the beginning

We’re committed to our social and ethical responsibility to create beautiful swimwear and summer accessories with minimal impact on the environment and the people who bring our designs to life. The necessity to educate ourselves on eco-friendly options and ethical practices stemmed from the very beginning. 

Our approach is not just about what we make our products with. It's about where they come from, how they're made, and what happens to them if you no longer want them.

We think long-term, making adjustments to lower the impact of production for both products and packaging, while considering the full lifecycle of each product. We choose ethics first and foremost, and then we consider materials that are recycled or can be upcycled later on.

Materials & packaging

For all of our products, we use 100% premium cotton or textiles made from recycled ocean waste. We don’t use recycled materials if they weren't ethically sourced in the first place and we don’t work with recycled blends or cheap materials to lower our production costs. We've worked hard to find suppliers and makers that are fair trade certified, which means they meet rigorous environmental, economic and social standards.

Every Isla In Bloom order is shipped to you in 100% recycled Ocean Bound Plastic pollution mailers and poly bags, or recycled kraft boxes. Our swing tags are made from 100% recycled paper.

Repurpose & recycle

A product's lifecycle is as important as its production. Our pieces are designed to be mindfully created from start to finish, so you can feel good about your purchase. Then, if or when you're ready to part ways with your Isla In Bloom product - for whatever reason - just return it to us along with the label (paid by us) and we'll take it to our textile recycling partner so it can be upcycled. Through recycling, our products are kept out of landfill and moved into the circular economy. Closed loop processes contribute to a healthier planet. 

For all end of line swimwear that we’re unable to sell, we’ve partnered with Thread Together, a charity that works with brands to donate clothing to people in need. Clothing is a basic human right and sadly there are more than 3.5 million Australians who do not have access to it, which is where Thread Together come in. They collect only brand new stock from fashion retailers around the country. With the support of volunteers, the clothes are sorted in readiness to be distributed to people in need through their national network of charities and social service agencies.

Our commitment

At Isla In Bloom, we only work with supply partners who we can form genuine relationships with and who share the same values and beliefs towards ethical trade and mindful production. 

Each step of the way is carefully considered by working closely with our production teams. From the creation of our product concepts, to dreaming up our feminine, signature florals and bohemian-inspired prints. All the way through to sourcing materials and making the final product. Our guiding principle is being able to create beautiful, ethically made collections of a premium quality, which gives you the choice to shop with labels like ourselves.
