Surfwear Company Salt Gypsy Supports Slow Fashion
In light of recent calls to action from Australian consumers, the Australian fashion industry and Australian fashion brands have made their sustainability and ethical practices more transparent so we can look good and feel good. InStyle magazine features some of Australia’s most ethical fashion brands, including New Zealand-owned Salt Gypsy.
“Founded by the New Zealand-born creator of the original bespoke surf legging and founder, Danielle Clayton, Salt Gypsy is a women’s sustainable surfwear company that celebrates female athleticism, diversity and style – all while supporting the slow fashion movement,” Grace Black writes for the magazine.
“The products are made from 100 per cent regenerated nylon yarn ECONYL, which is a longer lasting, more durable recycled nylon lycra with responsible manufacturing in Australia and biodegradable packaging. While the brand may have become known for its ethically made surf gear, as well as bikinis and rashies, their handprinted organic t-shirts have become a staple for those dedicated to ethical clothing.”
Clayton runs Salt Gypsy from Byron Bay in Sydney. The brand began in 2012 as a personal blog.
