Peony is an independent and environmentally conscious luxury Australian swimwear label. Built upon the philosophy of effortless feminine style and an elegantly casual Australian attitude, each collection features luxurious fabrications, signature in-house created textile prints, distinctive shapes and delicate details. All pieces are sold separately and designed to mix and match to suit you, allowing you the freedom to choose exactly what you want.
A small, family-run business, and like you, they care deeply for our environment and community. After all, they create garments for you to wear while enjoying the infinite beauty of nature. Each season, Peony swimwear introduces new sustainable processes in order to become more efficient at minimising their impact. They use Econyl, a 100% regenerative nylon made from the abandoned ocean and industrial plastic waste, made in Italy of the highest quality. Further, 100% of fabrications from their Sonnet collection meet Oeko Tex Standard 100, the highest certifiable standard for ensuring responsible use of chemicals during the construction of the fabrications, and from July 2019, over 70% of fabrications used within their collections will be made from recycled and sustainable content.
The brand works to minimise the negative impacts associated with manufacturing and to ensure that all people involved are treated fairly and respectfully along the way. Their swimwear supplier is certified SA8000 approved and what’s more, due to trade regulations, they are required to ship all garments in bags, so they have swapped to compostable and biodegradable packaging and all online orders are mailed using 100% recycled content. The ultimate goal is to become completely sustainable by 2020, and to be fully immersed in the circular economy by 2022.
