Consciously created for a slower pace of life.

We are aware the impact the industry has on both our planet & people. Sustainability is a core value but ethical production & supply chain transparency underpin this. In creating every piece of Bower we consider our carbon footprint, the impact on the environment & the safety / wellbeing of those who produce each component that is part of a Bower garment. Through transparency we are trying to give our customers the information to make informed purchases. This means disclosing our factories & suppliers names with links to their contact details, responding to any requests for information about our product honestly & constantly improving on our processes. Every decision we make is grounded in our belief that sustainability can only be truly impactful if ethical production & practices are also applied.

Made with care

We have partnered with a small atelier in Rimini, Italy called GISE SrL, who have over 20 years experience producing swim & resort wear. From October 2020 started working with Marketexteis in Barcelos, Portugal to create our jersey pieces. 

Our choice to produce in Europe is to ensure we can visit regularly and guarantee that all employees are paid under EU guidelines and are provided with safe working conditions.We can guarantee the safety & job security of those involved creating our garments and are proud of the relationship we have with the team.

Healthy Seas

From March 2019 1% of all orders will be donated to the Healthy Seas initiative. Healthy Seas was established with the aim to remove waste, in particular fishing nets, from the seas for the purpose of creating healthier oceans & recycling marine litter into textile products. They apply a 2 way approach in order to achieve their mission. Namely, recovering ghost fishing nets from our seas & ensuring discarded nets will not end up in marine ecosystems or in landfill. To learn more about what Healthy Seas do & where your 1% donation will be used visit healthyseas.org

Packaging

We have sourced suppliers who provide us with sustainable & ethically produced packaging.

Our tissue paper is certified by the Eco Packaging Alliance, this means our supplier plants trees to contribute to global reforestation in areas of need.Swing Tag, Tissue Paper & Sticker- FSC Certified which means the printed tissue is sourced from a forest & supply chain that is managed responsibly & sustainably. It is made from cellulose fibre where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin & sulphur free, meaning these chemicals won't be left behind when decomposing. Finally, the tissue is printed with soy based inks made from soybeans, a renewable resource. Soy inks do not leave behind petroleum based products when decomposing, they also have low levels of VOCs, reducing air pollution during the drying process.Shipping envelopes - our packaging is curb side recyclable & FSC Certified. We have now eliminated all plastic from our products, our poly bags are home compostable & our hygiene liners are made from commercially compostable adhesive & wood pulp.
