The cotton industry is notorious for leaching dangerous toxins into the eco system. While Australians are consuming and discarding textiles more rapidly than ever with 6000kg of clothing being sent to landfill every 10 minutes. Unfortunately, the majority of mainstream products available to us are a likely part of the problem.
LE BUNS is an independent, eco-conscious Australian intimates and swimwear label challenging the market to consider how they can reduce their clothing and textile footprint. With a focus on sustainable innovation and green manufacturing, all collections are exclusively designed with innovative regenerated nylon and low impact natural organic fabrications.
LE BUNS intimates are made with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton that offer significantly reduced manufacturing waste & toxin free alternatives to conventional cotton more commonly found in the market. LE BUNS swim collection is produced with the use of reconstructed recycled fibres such as discarded fishing nets, that would otherwise be polluting oceans and endangering wildlife.
In a market plagued with excess consumption LE BUNS strives to inspire consumers to choose well and buy less. The eco conscious collections of intimates and swim are designed with longevity of wear in mind to ensure no item is not easily disposed. Every piece in the swim collection is convertible and versatile able to be transformed to be worm in a multitude of ways, therefore transcending the category of just swimwear as a key staple that can be diversely integrated in one’s daily wardrobe essentials.
