Fabric & Print Details

Our Sarong is made using 100% EU Ecolabel certified LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose natural fibres. A soft sustainable alternative to traditional viscose that provides supply chain transparency. 

Inspired by seashells moving with the tides and our forever changing coastlines, the Ripple Effect textile print story is a Shapes in the Sand original. Designed and hand-painted in our coastal studio.

Ripple Effect has been printed using water-based neo pigment inks that are free from heavy metals, formaldehyde and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APE), making them non-hazardous, non-toxic and 100% biodegradable. 

Why EcoVero?

ECOVERO™ is lightweight and gentle against the skin, offering efficient moisture regulation allowing breathability. The fibres are biodegradable and made from 100% certified sustainable organic wood pulp.

Natural Circularity 

LENZING™ products are made from renewable raw materials which are biodegradable and compostable at the end of their use. This enables the material to close the loop and aligns with the biological cycle. 

All SHAPES IN THE SAND pieces and designed and made thoughtfully in Australia in by our small team of makers, using innovative recycled and bio-based fabrications. Our collections are made in limited runs to ensure we sell what we create.

Shapes in the Sand  Washing Instructions

If you prefer washing your swimsuit in the washing machine, please put on a

gentle cycle and ensure the swimsuit is washed inside a Guppyfriend Washing Bag. If you don't have a washing bag please rinse your swimsuit in a bucket. Once you are done, dispose of the water somewhere that is not down the drain. Hang out to dry in the shade.


Our resort collection is made from LENZING™ ECOVERO™ derived from certified wood pulp. We recommend a hand wash or delicate machine wash for your resort garment. Do not tumble dry as this fabric will shrink. Line dry in shade and a gentle iron or steam is preferred. 

How can you minimise microfibre shedding?

Only buy clothing that has been designed with durability in mind, so that they  can not only be recycled after many years of use but to also ensure quality fabric 

Use a laundry bag that is made from a natural/untreated fabric.
Minimise the amount of times you use your washing machine and use a gentle
cycle that won't aggravate the fibres, releasing them from the garment.
Buy less! Only buy what you need. By reducing consumption, we reduce the    amount of waste. and the amount of times we need to wash. Less is more.
