Palm offers a unique, responsible take on swim and resort wear that celebrates the diverse forms of femininity, and ways of 'being' a woman.
"From playing the muse to musing the play"
Inspired by contemporary women who pursue positive change and empower others, Palm collections combine bold, original design with craftsmanship and a strong commitment to minimising our social and environmental impact.
Palm’s in-house technicians and partners tailor the highest quality fabrics to create unique collections that are designed to last.
"I’m interested in who women have the potential to ‘be’. I want to embrace diverse forms of femininity and explore the different ways that women can express themselves, their agency and their identity. I’m inspired by the many women work at all levels of the fashion industry to introduce more responsible practices and lead positive change."
Kat Furey, Creative Director
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 in 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, built on and kept for many seasons. We aim to influence our customers to make more creative and considered choices in order to minimise energy usage and waste; and reduce our environmental impact by steering away from a throwaway culture of fast fashion.
Our core fabric is made from ECONYL® nylon fibres that have been regenerated from fishing nets and other post-consumer waste including plastic water bottles and thrown-out carpets. An initiative that recovers abandoned nets left on coral reefs and ocean floors to create new materials for repurposing and rejuvenating underwater ecosystems. It works like this: the post-consumer materials like plastic water bottles are collected, sorted, cleaned and shredded into small pieces. The small pieces are then melted into a liquid that is turned into strands of polyester or nylon, which is then woven into fabrics. It all sounds like a lot of work, but you will be pleased to know that it takes less energy to make recycled fibres than it does to make virgin fibres. Recycled fibres has a 75% lower carbon footprint than virgin materials and uses up to 90% less water.
