Who are we and what do we do?
Why hello there! Thanks for dropping by.
Here at iland co. HQ (pronounced 'island co') based on the sunny Central Coast of NSW, Australia we love to feel like we are on vacation all year round.
So much so we created an online women's fashion store specialising in resort wear and weekend casual wear.
Our speciality is one-size-fits-most kimonos, capes, shrugs, kaftans and boleros as well as casual beach dresses, blouses and bohemian-inspired styles.
Shop with peace of mind with 30-day returns and take a look at our hundreds of 5-star customer reviews. Everything you see on our online store ships from Sydney, Australia.

How iland co. came to be...
Let me introduce myself. I'm Jodie, the founder and designer of iland co.
iland co. was founded back in early 2014 when I was living in Dubai, U.A.E with my husband and 2 young children. My youngest was actually born in Dubai - now THAT is an interesting story for another time!
The concept of iland co. came to me when I was on a family holiday in Sri Lanka. You see, I love wearing comfortable but feminine floaty clothes without having to think too much about putting an outfit together.
I loved the effortless ease that travel wear offered, but I wanted to create something different to the usual embellished kaftans that seemed to dominate all things ‘resort wear’.
I wanted to bring those holiday feels to everyday life. Pieces that you could wear all year round, that made you feel like you were on vacation.
My signature design and best selling piece is my kimono (or kaftan as some people call them). These are one-size-fits-most and come in 3 different lengths. They are actually a fusion between the Middle Eastern Abaya or Bisht, and a Western take on the modern day kimono. I was living in the Middle East as an Australian expat when iland co. was born. I was exposed to lots of different cultures, and many beautiful fabrics which is where I drew my inspiration from and carry with me to this day.
Since launching the online store in April 2015, the iland co. brand has shifted its headquarters back to Sydney, Australia, however we still manufacture many of our garments there.
In fact we now proudly work with a team of international tailors, dressmakers and designers across the globe, to bring you everything you see online today.
iland co. brings you unique, handmade, beach, vacation, weekend and island style clothing, swimwear and accessories. The iland co. team are most comfortable in feminine, floaty, comfortable women's wear with a little edginess thrown in for good measure. These principles are always in our mind when we design our kimonos, kaftans, beach dresses, maxi skirts, swimsuit cover ups and maxi dresses.
