Sustainability

Towards Sustainability.

Whilst no fashion is 100% sustainable, we strives towards sustainability, using a range of eco friendly fabrics including:

We limit waste and recycle wherever possible as well as manufacturing locally.

 

Transparency.

Allerton is passionate about ethical and environmentally aware production. So much so, that we want to take you through the production process and show you the true cost of our pieces.

 

 

Fabrics.

We use advanced Recycled techno-fabric which is 100% regenerated nylon fiber from pre- and post-consumer materials which is extremely chlorine resistant and offers UPF 50+ sun protection. Recycled fabric means that no new waste or resources were generated through the production of the fabric. The fabric is made of materials rescued from oceans and landfills such as fishing nets, carpets and fabrics.

We also use reclaimed fabrics which are tested and saved from waste or landfill where possible.

We limit waste and recycle wherever possible as well as manufacturing locally.

         

 

Printing Process.

Our eco fabrics are printed locally in St Peter’s, NSW using the highest quality digital printing methods with industry best practice waste and chemical management. Prints are exclusive to Allerton and are developed in house or by local textile artists.

    

 

Cutting.

After grading, we cut our garments in house, or with a local cutter. Our Patterns are digitized for accuracy and efficiency. Any waste and offcuts from cutting are repurposed into products such a boxing bags.

           

Sewing.

Made locally in Sydney, each Allerton piece is hand made ethically and environmentally consciously. Because of our close relationship with makers, we are able to provide custom alterations and repairs, should anything happen to your pieces. Everything is considered down to very last thread (our thread provider practices transparency and uphold the modern slavery act).

       

Shipping.

Each piece is packed in eco friendly packaging and shipped to you from our Sydney Studio.

 

Design.

Our pieces are designed and pattern made in house. We go through rigorous testing, fitting and wear-testing to ensure each piece is comfortable and made to the highest standard.

 

Ethical Responsibility.

Allerton Swimwear is committed to improving conditions in the garment industry and we feel we have a responsibility to continuously improve our supply chain, promote and support ethical manufacturing and encourage positive body image and empower, not just our customers, but all women.

The Allerton Woman is an aspiration muse, she is Strong, Sexy, Healthy and Independent. We are passionate about promoting these values in every area of design, manufacturer, and partnerships.

This concept also extends to the manufacturing of Allerton pieces. The manufacturing methods Allerton uses, both in Australia and Bali, promotes independence and opportunities for women (most garment workers are female) and we believe it’s our responsibility to choose to work with factories and suppliers which have the best working conditions and environmental awareness, promoting, empowering and supporting women. We are motivated to raise awareness of ethical manufacturing, and believe it is everybody’s responsibility to do the same.

Allerton donates a percentage of profits from its Bali manufactured products to local charities supporting women and children.

Acknowledgment.

Allerton Swimwear acknowledges the Bidjigal and Gadigal people, who traditionally occupied the Sydney Coast and we acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders both past and present.
