At Palm we take a slower approach to fashion by using high-quality, sustainably sourced materials and producing no more than we need. All swim pieces are produced in-house at our Bali studio and are made singularly upon purchase. We adhere to the highest standards of quality and support ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices.

The nylon used in our swimsuits is regenerated from post-consumer waste and fishing nets. Our intent is for our swimsuits to be loved, lived in, and kept for many seasons. We aim to compel our customers to make more creative and considered choices, steering away from a throwaway culture of fast fashion, and in turn reducing our environmental impact.

THE VALUE OF DESIGN

We believe that ethical intentions and sustainable practices, alongside design, should underline a garment's value. We work to integrate core sustainable principles with high-quality materials without compromising on the look, quality and functionality of each piece.

At the drawing board, simplicity and understated elegance that captures a timeless appeal is central to our aesthetic. Our swimwear is designed to last beyond the season, moving away from the practice of fast-fashion that generates enormous waste with huge environmental implications.

We aim to remove the stigma that clothing should only be worn once or twice. Our designs are intended to serve as key standout essentials that can be mixed-and-matched or built upon. We aim to inspire our customers to explore their own personal style through considered design in order to generate a more sustainable future.

RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURING

Here at PALM the design and production of our garments is of the utmost importance. We work daily and directly with our skilled team of in-house artisans, based at our studio space in Bali, Indonesia.

Our collections are all produced here, where we proudly adhere to fair living wages, realistic deadlines and sustainable manufacturing practices. We take a lot of pride in the relationships we have developed with our makers over the last few years. Meet our talented team...coming soon.

MATERIALS & INNOVATION

At PALM we take a slower approach to fashion by using high-quality, sustainably sourced materials and producing no more than we need. We aim to provide considered swimwear to the conscious customer and understand that creating each piece requires the Earth's resources and energy. Our intention is to reduce our environmental impact where possible without compromising on quality or comfort.

Our core fabric is made from ECONYL® nylon fibres, regenerated from fishing nets and other post-consumer waste such as plastic water bottles and thrown-out carpets. This initiative recovers abandoned nets left on coral reefs and ocean floors, repurposing them to create new materials whilst rejuvenating underwater ecosystems. It works like this: post-consumer materials are collected, sorted, cleaned and shredded into small pieces. These pieces are then melted into a liquid that is turned into strands of polyester or nylon, which are then woven into fabrics. It sounds like a lot of work, however the process of making recycled fibres demands less energy than the process of making virgin fibres. Recycled fibres have a 75% lower carbon footprint, and use 90% less water than virgin materials.

Never compromising on quality, our materials have double the lifespan of normal swim fabric alongside added protection from harmful UV rays, rough surfaces and chlorine chemicals, ensuring your pieces to last beyond a season. Our aim is to use 100% recyclable materials as new and exciting innovations advance.
