U&I Label

First launched in 2014 by Australian Fashion Designer Jodie Hayes and Swedish Designer and Photographer Emma Bäcklund, U&I is an ethical swimwear label designed in Torquay, made in Melbourne. Dreamt up in between sets while surfing at Bells Beach, every stitch is inspired by the power of the ocean and designed to fill the gap between the uninspiring triangle and forgotten function. In 2018, U&I made the switch to using 100% regenerated nylon fiber from pre and post consumer waste such as fishnet and other end of life nylon materials, which is just as long-lasting and durable as conventional lycra.

U&I aims to raise awareness and needed funds to help protect the Australian reefs and sea animals. 5% will be donated to not-for-profit organisations from every piece purchased from their Coexist t-shirt collection.
