You are always smiling. You are happy, honest, kind & caring. You live for friends & family. You love music & may even attain spirituality. But most importantly you love being outdoors, the water, the fresh air & the environment.
WE ARE a vintage-inspired brand with a forever love of music and a time when things, and people, were & lived simply.
Feel happy and carefree in our soft fabrics, floral prints & cheeky to modest cuts that don’t define how others make us feel. Be at peace with yourself & your surroundings. Our pieces are designed with love to make women feel good about themselves. Why do we need to make ‘heads turn’ when deep down, we just want to feel confident, comfortable & good about ourselves?
ELKA SWIM DOING OUR PART FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Our love of the environment & the outdoors is strong. We have cut out the use of plastics within our business, this includes our mailing bags, hangtags & garment bags, all of which are 100% biodegradable. We do zero waste shipping & have made sure our garment bags can be repurposed as a reusable produce bag or a delicate bag. And of course, we are a member of 1% for the planet. For every sale we get, we donate a portion of sales to the environment.
Our Elka women are honest & so are we. We design our bikinis in Australia but have them made overseas.
How are we able to ensure that the people who make our bikinis are empowered to do so & paid a living wage?
We have a very close working relationship with our manufacturers. Our manufacturers have been verified onsite by world-leading inspection company, Bureau Veritas. Bureau Veritas is a global leader in the certification aspects of OHSAS, Quality, Environment and Social Accountability Management System. They ensure companies meet health & safety, environmental protection and social responsibility.
Our manufactures have also been assessed by Intertek as conforming to the requirements of their Workplace Conditions Assessment. Intertek has assessed the practices of our manufacture facility according to the scope of the Workplace Conditions Assessment (the evaluation covered: labour, wages + hours, health & safety, management systems & environment), which resulted in meeting the performance criteria required for the "Achievement Award".
