WE ARE Ocean Guardians.
70% of the planet is embraced by the ocean. It gives us so much life, from the air we breathe, to the pure joy it immerses us in. The ocean is our playground. To us, it’s home.
In the last 40 years, half of all marine life has been lost. By 2050 it is projected that there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.
These facts not only crush our souls but awakens a deep fire in us to be a part of the wave of change. To re-write the future for our divine ocean.
This is why we are committed to creating beautiful wetsuits & swimwear that have the earth in mind. In every decision we make we are conscious of our environmental impact and we make each decision with respect and love for our playground. We craft all our wetsuits & swimwear from eco-conscious materials. Our materials are made from recycled PET bottles to abandoned fishing nets. Read more about our materials here
WE ARE Respectful of our Crafters
We celebrate the hands that bring our suits to life, and the not forgotten art of craftsmanship. The magic that our team creates is truly inspiring, from printing your suit, to hand cutting them, to sewing the finishing touches. Our wetsuits are made in Australia by a beautiful team in a small factory, while our swimwear is made in New Zealand where we call home. Producing ethically made products is at the heart of Gemma Lee.
WE ARE a Passionate Community of Ocean Lover Women
WE ARE a passionate community of ocean-loving women who bond over our salty stories, our sun streaked hair and ocean perfume. Our suits have explored many oceans with our adventure seekers from our birth place of New Zealand. Designer Gemma Lee grew up a passionate water baby spending many hours a day splashing about. Gemma competed in many water sports growing up, and had an obsession for swimwear with a unique point of design. Frustrated there were no wetsuits made for a woman's shape, that were beautifully designed and still had high performance qualities, birthed the Gemma Lee Suits brand. People and the planet is at the heart of everything Gemma does, which is why the Gemma Lee brand has such a big focus on ethics and sustainability.
