Inspired By Nature


Our sustainable wetsuits, swimsuits and bikinis are designed to sculpt your silhouette and support for an action-packed day in the water, the engineered fit includes contoured panels and flatlock construction for function and durability. Detailed with luxurious finishings and corrosion-free metallic zips from Italy. All of this, whilst dedicated to causing the least possible environmental harm.

Inspired by the clean lines we see in and around the ocean, the wetsuit and bikini collection is aptly named ‘Clean Lines’ and is ethically produced in a small, independently-run factory in Italy.


Zip front and racerback bikini tops and swimsuits are available with different coverage options, as well as surf shorts, full brief bikini bottoms and long-sleeved wetsuits, to suit every activity and every body.


Imagine if by enjoying the ocean, we could help protect it at the same time?


We are SLO active. We are more than oceanwear. We are a cause: to protect the ocean. Plastic Pollution in our oceans is one of the worlds biggest environmental emergencies. Over 20 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans every year.  We’ve made it our purpose to address the issue.

Sustainable Swimwear with Purpose

Guayle plants BW


Sustainability is at our heart. Our garments are ethically made using the most cuttingedge plant based rubber, Yulex Pure, which provides a sustainable alternative to toxic neoprene, which not only is the material non-renewable, but it's derived from petroleum or limestone, therefore a product of mining or drilling.

Slow Fashion

Buy better, not more. Join the movement against fast fashion. Slow fashion encompasses all things ethical and eco in one unified movement. The phrase “Slow Fashion” was first seen quoted by Kate Fletcher, from the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, however, the movement has been gaining momentum for decades now.
