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.
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® yarn, a 100% regenerated fiber made from nylon waste that otherwise pollutes the Earth. Waste such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world. Through regeneration and purifying processes, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same a fossil-based nylon and has the potential to be recycled indefinitely, without ever losing its quality. As well as being a solution to waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is also advanced when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared to material from oil.
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.
