Surf, Swim, and Namaste

Sharing a love for sacred geometry and drawing inspiration from nature, each fabric pattern is created in-house by Wolven’s designers Kiran Jade and Will Ryan.

Underpinning the Wolven philosophy is this idea of ‘practical and slow.’ They focus on transitional styles, pieces with endless opportunities for styling.

The yoga tops double as crop tops perfect with high-waisted shorts. The swimwear can be work to workout or as bodysuits under your favourite skirt. Come winter, the leggings make for a cosy and comfortable outfit topped off with your warmest knit.

Wolven’s fabrics are OEKO-TEX certified Recycled P.E.T fabric (RPET), a fabric made from recycled plastic water bottles. This certification ensures that their material is free of harmful and toxic chemicals. Over 6.4 million tonnes of plastic trash enters the world’s oceans each year. RPET creates a second life for plastics, helping to keep plastic out of our oceans.
