The Journe story began with three female entrepreneurs who had a desire to create timeless swimwear that made women feel beautiful and empowered, was environmentally friendly and showcased the natural beauty of Australia.
A tall order, but one we have accomplished! Journe swimwear is ethically and sustainably made from luxury Italian fabric woven from ECONYL® here on the sun-kissed shores of Gold Coast, Australia. ECONYL® is 100% regenerated nylon fibre from fishnets and other nylon waste. Discarded plastic is not only an eyesore and a pollutant, but it is harmful to marine life. We are pleased we can do our part in restoring the health of our oceans.
But the story doesn't end there. The Journe team are grateful for the incredible blessings they experience living in Australia. Many women across the globe are not as fortunate and every day brings a struggle to survive. For this reason, Journe is committed to supporting women entrepreneurs in developing countries. 5% of the revenue from every swimwear item sold goes to support Australian charities doing great things overseas.
Currently, we support Opportunity International Australia; a non-profit organisation that tackles global poverty by providing small business loans, savings, insurance and training to more than 14 million people in developing nations working their way out of poverty. 95% of Opportunity International’s loans go to women.
