The Botanical Beach Babes Resort 2020 Collection is more than a swimwear release, it is our favorite to date and it embodies everything we stand for. Sustainable and complete luxury this collection will leave you wanting more.
We live and breathe our messages of sustainability, environmentally friendly and ethical practices and aim to support like-minded businesses and places. So, naturally, to shoot our 2020 Resort Release we headed to one of the most sustainable, stunning and just all-out breathtaking places this world has to offer; Tulum, Mexico.
Emma Rose and Maja Malnar helped us capture this premium destination and all it stands for. Staying at Azulik - a premium destination and slice of paradise. This sanctuary helped us reconnect with nature and bought the beauty of the Mayan Jungle and the Caribbean Sea together.
We could not think of somewhere more beautiful and in line with Botanical Beach Babes than Tulum, Mexico to begin our 2020 Resort Tour.
We then headed home to Botanical Beach Babes HQ to continue to capture the beauty. We are fortunate enough work from one of the most beautiful places and why not showcase where Botanical Beach Babes was firstborn.
Heading out to sea on a stunning yacht, we were witness to many of natures beauties. From dolphins putting on a show, a breathtaking sunset and of course our beautiful girls in our beautiful resort wear.
We hope you love this collection as much as we do.Continue reading
Here at Botanical Beach Babes not only do we care about looking and feeling our best, we care about living a sustainable and mindful life. Part of this is focusing our efforts on sustainable and eco-friendly designs and working with those who share our vision.
Cantik (pronounced ‘chan-tick’ meaning ‘beautiful’ in Bahasa Indonesia) Swimwear is just that - founded in 2013 on the shores of Sydney Australia by Catherine Heenan and made on the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia. This bold and strong brand believes in acting mindfully and responsibly with ethical consciousness at the heart of the label. Through the use of ECONYL VITA fabric, (which is an environmentally innovative 100% regenerable & recycled nylon yarn made from post consumer materials, such as fishing nets recovered from the oceans, plastic bottles etc), Cantik is able to make a positive impact on that current state of environment and global supply chain. Well over half of the Cantik design team, including their suppliers, have been with the company for over 10 years. They are paid at least twice the minimum wage and double salary at holiday times. All employees & families carry a company insurance against any medical emergencies, doctors fees & prescription medicine. The factory has been thriving & the design, sampling team have done several trips to the US & Australia to meet with their brands. It’s truly a wonderful manufacturer!
Cantik promises to continue to implement positive changes both large & small, with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral and gaining B Corp Certification by 2022. Founder/Designer Catherine Heenan has a degree in Environmental Humanities and Development and focused her studies specifically on the rights and autonomy of workers in Indonesia. Catherine holds a strong interest in humanitarianism, being an active member of Amnesty International and a company partner of I=Change.
Regular visits to the Cantik factory ensure transparency, good wages, and working condition, with the best possible treatment for all workers.
Cantik proudly works to empower its manufacturers and employees to create swimwear that its customers comfortably wear satisfactorily knowing their origins. Awareness and influence are beautiful.
Cantik swimwear designs are inspired by classic vintage styles and contemporary fashion silhouettes. With minimal coverage to feature the female form in all of its variations. The highest quality fabrication, refined femininity, quality detailing, daring cuts and unique in-house designed prints encompass the label’s signature aesthetic.
On Saturday night we glamorously swapped our amazing swimwear for some stunning evening wear style to showcase for the Oceana Seachange Summer Gala event. As if putting on a elegant, jaw-droppingly beautiful Walter Mendez gown, having our hair and makeup perfectly designed by some of the best creative talent in the world, eating delicious sustainable food and spending the night mingling with some of the most inspiring people we have ever met isn’t enough — we’re doing it all for a good cause!
Oceana is the world’s largest Ocean Conservation group who’s mission is to protect and restore our beautiful Oceans. By the year 2050 there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish. Who wants to live in a world where the most beautiful of places and the most majestic of creatures are getting destroyed by humans?
It is our responsibility, as humans, to protect those who can’t protect themselves, dolphins, turtles, fish — all of our sea-life are dying as a result of our actions. We must stand up, we must be heard and we must do our bit to keep this world as beautiful as possible.
So please, join us. Choose a sustainable life, make conscious eco-friendly decisions. It is by our small everyday actions of using re-usable cups, using paper bags, avoiding one-use plastic and supporting sustainable brands that we, as ordinary people can make a huge impact.
