Every process involved from the sourcing right through to the distribution of collections is done using low impact, ethical practices. Shapes in the Sand is proud of the strong relationships they have built with trusted partners and makers. The production house is operated in Sydney by duo Raymond and Ivy. A small family run business they hold more than 25 years of experience in the industry. All Shapes in the Sand collections are unique and made in small quantities to prevent over consumption.
Shapes in the Sand design values encompass high-quality design, printing and construction with a commitment towards circularity and keeping manufacturing local. Regenerative fibres are used that support circularity through using recycled fibres. Fibres are part of a closed loop system where pre and post consumer materials are fed back into the production cycle to create new life. ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated fibre derived from discarded fishing nets and other pre and post consumer materials is used. Fabrications meet OEKO-TEX® standards and are printed locally in Australia. Express post deliveries are offset with Greenfleet who plant native biodiverse forests in Australia and New Zealand to restore critical ecosystems. Packaging is responsibly sourced, recycled material and non toxic inks are used. Even compostable hygiene liners are used. Furthermore the brand is a Global Commitment signatory - part of the Plastics Economy to help eliminate problematic plastic.
Each Shapes in the Sand collection is designed to align with a local environmental project. The current Hightide collection has been created in partnership with OceanWatch Australia. OceanWatch works with Australia’s seafood industry and coastal communities to ensure our marine environment is healthy, productive, valued and responsibly used. Shapes in the Sand are donating $10 from the sale of every garment sold from Hightide to OceanWatch Australia to help protect essential fish habitat through Tide to Tip 2022.

What our experts say...


I fell in love with The The Oystercatcher Wireless One Piece as soon as I saw it. The unique oyster-inspired print is so beautiful and the one piece cut is so lovely. Once they were on it sealed the deal – hugging me in all the right places.
Shapes in the Sand make beautiful swimwear in a way that values people and the planet throughout the supply chain. I love the theme of supporting the ocean and waterways, while also ensuring garments are made ethically and are of a high quality. This is a wonderful brand with a beautiful product.

Bold print with a lovely connection back to the initiative it’s supporting – oysters for the support of ocean and oyster habitats. Fabric is lined and thick, with a nice feel to it. Some bust support was provided despite a lack of underwire. Love the genuine connection between swimwear and social responsibility of ocean-based initiatives. Great to see recycled ocean plastic used in the manufacture – and local manufacturing too. Love the use of ethical dyes. Beautiful little detail in including a compostable hygiene liner!

This is an exquisite one piece, which gives breast support without padding or an underwire and also holds in my tummy through the firm double lining. An extremely flattering cut and very well made. With a strap across the back, I feel safe that it’ll stay put in the surf and I’m totally in love with the mesmerizing pattern. I really appreciate that each collection is designed to align and give back to a local environmental event. Quality, flattering, sustainable, ethical and responsible. Highly recommended.
