In order to make ethically made swimwear we choose each material with intention and care. From labels to the fabrics, everything is chosen thoughtfully. When designing we think about what fabric will work best, we always include recycled nylon or recycled polyester in our products, even in our linings.
ECONYL® takes recycled materials to a whole exciting new level by turning waste into a resource. To make ECONYL®, waste such as industrial plastic, waste fabric and fishing nets from the oceans is recycled and regenerated into a new nylon yarn that is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon.
Some of our other fabrics include a high tech totally renawable resource yarn, sourced from Castor Bean, a plant. This yarn has a 25% less impact on climate change compared to a standard polyamide.
For our recently launched Resortwear collection we selected a 100% GOTS certified organic linen from Belgium. From field to fiber, from yarn to fabric, the making of linen is a story of passion and craftsmanship whilst being the most sustainable fabric in the planet. This linen is also Oeko-Tex certified.
COLD IS COOL
Cold water is always the way to go. Not only is it better for the environment but it's definitely better for your swimwear. Washing your clothes in cold water is an easy way to save energy and prevent carbon pollution, while protecting your garment from color fading.
HANG IT UP
Indoors or outdoors, hanging your clothes is a convenient and sustainable alternative to machine drying. Clothes last longer when hung dry because they suffer less wear and tear from the heat of the dryer. This will avoid fiber degradation. Tip: Don’t put dark pieces in bright/direct sunlight or they will fade, dry them in the shade.
When shopping for laundry products, think natural. Natural detergents and stain removers are made from plant and vegetable-based ingredients (rather than petroleum).
Hang your garment in the bathroom while you shower, this will remove the minor wrinkles. The steam created is usually enough to smooth out most fabrics.
Minor damages can easily be repaired at home. If you need a fix contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send us a picture and we will give you a tip for each particular product.
RESELL OR SWAP
There are some great sites that can be used to sell garments you no longer wear, always a great option to give your swimsuit a second life!
We limit the amount of garments we create each season to ensure every collection is unique and that we are not wasting resources. Your garment is truly one of a precious few.
