Rompus is a trendy Australian owned and designed brand that represents effortless style, authenticity and easy-going living at the heart of its brand philosophy. These positive values shine through at every level, from the experienced tailoring to the made-to-last quality, use of natural materials and responsible production.
Rompus is a label that is surrounded by the idea of creating versatile swimwear for the woman of tomorrow. Our bikinis are made using recycled plastic that would otherwise be polluting our precious land and ocean.
The fabrics we use are made from industrial and post-consumer waste such as fishnets, carpets, plastic bottles and textiles that would otherwise be going to landfill and polluting our lands and oceans. The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world after oil, which is why it’s so incredibly important to buy products that have been created mindfully.
According to Plastic Pollution, in 2018 there will be more than 300 million tonnes of plastic that is produced worldwide. Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans, which is equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline…that’s horrendous!!! With Rompus, we focus on reusing the plastic that is already in the world to make something that is versatile, sustainable, durable and wonderful. Instead of using virgin polyester in our swimwear, we use recycled polyester which means it has a 90% lower carbon footprint.
50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton
90% less carbon footprint than nylon
Using more recycled polyester reduces our dependence on petroleum as the raw material for our fabric needs.
Diverting discarded plastic for this process reduces landfill, and thus less soil contamination, air and water pollution.
Plus, the thing we love the most and want to share with you, is that most of our bikini designs are 4 in one! They are reversible, and mix and match which means that essentially for the price of one bikini you are actually getting four. SAVING $$$ AND THE PLANET, CAN I GET A HELL YEAH?!
