We are always looking to expand our knowledge of sustainable and ethical practices. Our fabrics are made from regenerated plastics. We use eco-friendly fabric dyes. Our hygiene stickers are safe for home-compost disposal.
Liandra Swim is a sustainable ode to Indigenous Australian culture and people. We use swimwear fashion to showcase our rich culture, through our signature prints.
All our pieces are limited edition. Our pieces are unique in every sense of the word.
We highlight the achievements of Indigenous women through our swimwear. Each of our pieces is named after a different ground-breaking Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander woman.
Our purpose goes beyond the visual aesthetic and we want to help empower through education, connection and fashion!
What the LS Community are saying....
"Blown away! I love that this is sustainable, ethical, recycled material, beautifully designed and local. I'm so impressed with how many amazing facets you've incorporated into the cossies. I got the brooke bottoms (cute and cheeky) and the Rarriwuy top. I love that it's reversible and that the top can be worn in so many ways, I can get so many looks with the one top. Look forward to buying more in the future and congrats on such an awesome business!"
"Could not recommend more highly! Delivery was so quick, the team was so helpful, and above everything the quality of the swimwear is incredible! Can’t wait to get more"
