WE ARE SUSTAINABLE

MATERIALS

WE ONLY SOURCE THE SOFTEST, MOST
LUXURIOUS AND ENVIRONMENTALLY
SUSTAINABLE OPTIONS AVAILABLE. LÉ BUNS
AIM TO OFFER YOU EASY, EFFORTLESS AND
MOST OF ALL ECO-FRIENDLY SOLUTIONS TO
THE CLOTHING YOU WEAR CLOSEST TO YOUR
BODY – UNDERWEAR & SWIMWEAR.

YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOUR CLOTHING
KNOWING THAT YOU ARE SUPPORTING AWARENESS & OVERALL DEMAND OF ORGANIC
COTTON AND REGENERATED NYLON COMPARED TO ENVIRONMENTALLY HARMFUL
CONVENTIONAL COTTON AND NON -
RECYCLED NYLON FABRICATIONS.

ORGANIC COTTON

OUR INTIMATES ARE MADE WITH GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC
COTTON. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL COTTON, ORGANIC COTTON
ELIMINATES THE USE OF PESTICIDES, INSECTICIDES, HERBICIDES
AND GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS THAT ARE BEING
GROSSLY EMITTED BY THE CONVENTIONAL COTTON TRADE.
SADLY LESS THAN 1% OF ALL COTTON IS GROWN ORGANIC.

CONVENTIONALLY GROWN COTTON USES MORE INSECTICIDES
THAN ANY OTHER CROP IN THE WORLD. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT
EACH YEAR COTTON PRODUCERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE
USE OF UP TO 25% OF THE WORLD’S INSECTICIDES AND MORE
THAN 10% OF THE WORLD’S PESTICIDES. THESE TOXINS ARE
HARMFUL FOR FARMERS AND WORKERS, US AS CONSUMERS,
AND ENTIRE WILDLIFE ECO-SYSTEMS.

ORGANIC COTTON IS MORE RESISTANT TO SHRINKAGE, FADING
AND GRAYING, THEREBY EXTENDING ITS LIFESPAN. IT IS GREAT
FOR UNDERWEAR BECAUSE IT IS BOTH SUPER SOFT (HAS A SILKY
TOUCH) THAT GIVES THAT LUXURIOUS FEEL THAT WE STRIVE FOR.
IT IS ALSO A FABRIC THAT IS IRRITATION FREE AND NATURALLY
PREVENTS THE GROWTH OF BACTERIA. IT’S COOL TO THE TOUCH
AND SUPER ABSORBENT, MEANING LESS WASTE OF WATER.

NATURAL DYES

BY USING NATURAL DYES, OUR INTIMATES ARE
KINDER TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND TO YOUR
SKIN. USING PLANT DYED ORGANIC COTTON
ELIMINATES THE USE OF TOXIC CHEMICALS
THROUGHOUT OUR PROCESS. IT ALSO MAKES
A CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES AND
HEALTH OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN MAKING
OUR GARMENTS.

WE WORK WITH A TALENTED GROUP OF FABRIC
TECHNICIANS IN BALI & CHINA ON OUR
CHEMICAL FREE DYEING PROCESS. ALL
INGREDIENTS AND MATERIALS THROUGHOUT
THE PROCESS ARE PLANT BASED. THE
TECHNIQUE TO ACHIEVE OUR BEAUTIFUL
NATURAL DYE COLOUR PALETTES ARE KIND TO
THE ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT SACRIFICING
QUALITY OR COLOUR FASTNESS.

REGENERATED NYLON

OUR LUXURIOUS & HIGHLY VERSATILE SWIMWEAR COLLECTIONS
ARE MADE OF A DURABLE REGENERATED NYLON. LE BUNS
SWIMWEAR FABRIC IS SOURCED IN ITALY FROM A MILL THAT HAS
BEEN KNITTING INNOVATIVE FABRICS FOR OVER 50 YEARS. THIS
YARN COMES FROM 100% REGENERATED MATERIALS, HELPING
TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF GLOBAL WASTE BY COLLECTING IT
FROM LANDFILLS AND OCEANS AND FEEDING IT BACK INTO
PRODUCTION CYCLES.

IT IS ESTIMATED 640,000 TONNES OF FISHING GEAR ARE
DUMPED IN OUR OCEANS EACH YEAR. A STUDY OF 870 NETS
RECOVERED IN THE US ALONE CONTAINED MORE THAN 32,000
MARINE ANIMALS. THE WPAS (WORLD ANIMAL PROTECTION
SOCIETY) ESTIMATES THAT ENTANGLEMENT IN GEAR KILLS AT
LEAST 136,00 SEALS, SEA LIONS AND WHALES EVERY YEAR.

EVERY TON OF FISH NET RECOVERED & REGENERATED WILL
PRODUCE ENOUGH YARN FOR 26,000 PAIRS OF BIKINI BOTTOMS!

CONSUMPTION, LÉ BUNS STRIVES TO INSPIRE
