Liandra Gaykamangu

Portrait shot of Liandra Gaykamangu

Liandra Swim is a fusion of sun, surf and culture. It is a label born from all the elements I am most passionate about; my culture, education and sustainability. Our signature prints share deep and meaningful stories that allow our community of wearers to learn about Aboriginal culture in an authentic and contemporary way. Each of our pieces are named after inspirational Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. This is done to create positive dialogue around the achievements Indigenous women are making in community, across our nation and around the globe.

We are an ethical and eco-conscious brand. Our speciliased fabrics are made from recycled plastics and recycled elastane. The dyes that we use to bring our prints to life are also specialised and an environmentally-friendly option. Our packaging is plant-based and is home-compostable; as are our hygiene stickers and mailer bags.

I grew up surfing and spending my free time by the ocean. Creating a swimwear label was a natural way for me to express my love of culture and the world around me. As a Yolngu woman, from North-East Arnhem Land, the ocean is an integral part of who I am; both culturally and in my day-to-day life.
