Being open, honest and transparent are really important to the Isle of Summer team. Whist we're not perfect, we are trying our best to operate an ethical business that considers the environment and the impact of our operations on people.
Our range is produced in Bali by a well respected and highly skilled factory who pride themselves in treating their staff as family. In addition to a happy and safe workplace, our factory also:
Our factory is the most important part of our business so it is critical we partner with a team who love their jobs, because happy employees create beautiful quality products.
Whilst we would love to manufacture our clothing in Australia, it is currently not possible due to the significantly higher costs to do so. We do however use Australian based pattern makers and fabric print designers, who all happen to be working mums.
Sustainability is important to our brand and we're always researching new fabric technologies that reduce the impact on our plant.
The rayon fabric we use in our range is made from recycled tree pulp which is also locally produced in Indonesia. The fabric has a silk like feel, drapes beautifully, is low wrinkle and breathable. It also uses half the energy to produce than cotton. Reducing our footprint on our planet is important to us.
All of our fabrics are unique to Isle of Summer and are screen printed by hand. We have created a video to show you the screen printing process so you can see how your clothes are made. Watch the video here.
