Tide Swimwear was established in 2018 by Lydia Dobson, with sustainability at the forefront of her mind. Creating ethically produced, beautiful swimwear is something Tide will continually strive for. By being 100% Australian made, we are able to control our working conditions and wages that go into producing our pieces, and making made-to-order means that pieces aren't over produced and ending up in landfill.
Even the fabric that goes into Tide Swimwear is made from regenerated nylon or polyester fibre. The solid colour fabrics we use in Tide Swimwear pieces are made from a regenerated nylon fibre from post-consumer materials. The print fabrics are made from 78% recycled fibres. Both fabrics, as well as being sustainable, are of an exceptional quality. The fabrics are smooth and soft, yet extra strong, and will not stretch out of shape. They are 4.5 times more resistant to chlorine than your average swimwear fabric, and have a sun protection rating of UPF 50+.
The core of Tide Swimwear is our long sleeve one pieces and bikinis. It is important to us that people who want a bit more coverage, and something to withstand the powerful Australian summer sun, can still have beautiful and sustainable swimwear.
