Salty was founded in 2014 due to my obsession with Bikini's, Sunshine & Salt water. It has been inspired by my nieces & my best friend’s babies
Originally Salty Swimwear began as a children's swimwear label. Working as a nanny & swimming instructor in Sydney I noticed there wasn't a great variety for stylish yet practical children's swimwear so I decided to start Salty Swimwear. Although I was at uni studying to be a Teacher, this would be my side gig for now.
I had a few samples made up for my nieces and we did a little photoshoot and that when I decided that this is what I had to do & I turned my first mini collection around in under 1 week.
When I got back to Aus I hustled hard, I’m talking 430am wake ups to drive 3 hours for markets up and down the east coast. Setting up by myself, working all day and then packing up and driving back another 3 hours.
I am proud to say that all of our printed pieces are made out of recycled plastic bottles by REPREVE®. Unifi, which makes REPREVE, has recycled over 14 billion plastic bottles already.
We also use comPOST Packs by the better packaging co as well as their comPOLY bags which are made from corn starch and can be composted in the home.
Everything you buy is handmade with love in Indonesia.
