Good-natured minimal waste swimwear

Born to protect the natural world.

The natural world is our playground and helping to protect it is part of who we are as an honest Australian made label. We draw inspiration from the ecosystems that make up our beautiful planet. Born in 2013 we have been creating swimwear from fibres derived from certified circular and recycled materials that would otherwise end up in landfill.

Our signature print stories that burst with spirit are a symbol of nature. Aligned with our environmental conservation values and ethical production, each collection is designed in our Northern Beaches studio and made by our small team of makers to support local environmental projects.

We embrace a minimal impact approach by making small capsule collections and recreating from remnants. Every step involved in the sourcing right through to the distribution of our capsule collections is done using slow processes.

Our Nature Girls inspire us and by sharing stories we can learn from one another and help keep our ecological footprint small.

Hightide

Hightide is a symbol of hope and opportunity under the notion, "Everyday is a new beginning." A resort capsule inspired by our forever changing coastlines and the ecosystems that depend on the tides, this summer we are supporting OceanWatch Australia. 

OceanWatch Australia works with Australia’s seafood industry and coastal communities to ensure our marine environment is healthy, productive, valued and responsibly used.  Shapes in the Sand are donating $10 from the sale of every garment sold from Hightide to OceanWatch Australia to help protect essential fish habitat through Tide to Tip 2022 - A series of oyster farmer led clean-up events in Australian waterways.

We acknowledge the Guringai People, the Traditional Owners of the land and oceans where we design and create. We pay our respects to the Elders past and present.
