WHO ARE WE

We are passionate about our label. Whats the story behind us?

Meet the creator

Hi,
Lovely to meet you all. I am Sonja Vähäsaari and I am the designer and the creator of Savari Swimwear. I grew up in Finland, where sustainability and recycling are taken seriously and they are part of our every day lives - as they should be for all of us. My mother taught me in early age that you should never litter the nature - you should preserve it. I left Finland to travel the world when I was 18, and I was shocked how bad a lot of countries are in recycling and offering sustainable options. Currently I live in Australia and I really want to change the way people think about recycling and sustainability in here.
I've been passionate about creating and designing my entire life and I have always dreamed of my label. I wanted to combine my passion for fashion and recycling, and I am beyond stoked to finally have my own sustainable brand.
I have a lovely, small team in Bali, who manufacture Savari and bring my designs alive. They are also passionate about recycling and the environment, so they make sure they do their part in the manufacturing process.
The main goal of Savari Swimwear is to raise the awareness of the plastic pollution and environmental issues we have on this planet, whilst having fun and enjoying the life. I'm glad to have you on board. Together we can do this.
Love,
Sonja @sonjq

So where does your money go?

The main goal of Savari Swimwear is to spread the awareness of plastic pollution and get everyone to reduce their single-use plastic usage, make people more conscious and cosume more ethically. And look good and feel good while doing it. We donate monthly to charities who help cleaning plastic out of our beautiful oceans and other organisations who do our planet good. Savari Swimwear's designs are inspired by the beauty of Australia combined with Finnish design.

By buying a piece of SAVARI you are:

Supporting an organisation that plants a tree with every order we make with them,
Support ocean cleaning as our swimwear is made of recycled ocean plastic waste,
Support different organisations as we donate monthly to organisations that do our planet good (take3forthesea, 4ocean, bushfires etc.)
Support a small family business in Bali who manufactures our swimwear.

We mail our swimwear in a compostable mailing bag, our invoice label is biogradeable and the paper work inside can be thrown in the recycling bin.

We are grateful for being able to do what we do which is why we want to give back as much as possible.
