Sustainability

Quality timeless design
We believe in products that withstand the test of time. Knowing that fashion is the second most polluting industry after mining, we work hard to create timeless, versatile staples that are made to outlast fashion trends. Our swimwear is designed by experts for a superior, flattering fit. 

Fabric quality and sustainability
Our soft yet strong Hākinakina fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. It’s manufacture also emits fewer greenhouse gases than traditional fabric, uses waterless printing and is powered purely by green solar energy.

With a UPF 50+ sun protection rating, meaning that it blocks out 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, you’re free to play all day without the need for additional sunscreen or worrying about what the sun is doing to your skin.

Conscious packaging 
At Hākinakina all our packaging is plastic free and 100% recyclable or compostable, inclusive of swing tags, satchels and hygiene labels

Minimal waste
We're unique in that we make all of our pieces to order so we can be sure that every piece we make goes to a happy home rather than landfill.  We will reduce waste by releasing small collections a couple of times a year. We aim to produce to demand and hold as little stock as is commercially viable.

Plus, when your piece does eventually wear out, send it back to us for recycling and we will give you an exclusive discount to use on your next Hākinakina purchase.

Made in NZ by women
Because of our commitment to ethics, sustainability and quality, every garment is made locally here in NZ by a team of expert kiwi sewists.

Giving back
As part of my commitment to giving back to the cancer community, every time you make a purchase $1 goes to the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research for Cancer research.
