Fabric

Our solid color swimsuits are made of 78% ECONYL® regenerated nylon and 22% elastane. ECONYL® yarn is made up from rescued waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. Through the regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled back to its original purity which is exactly the same as virgin nylon. ECONYL® regenerated nylon has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality.

From the ECONYL® yarn that was used for our Spring / Summer 2019 collection, we managed to recover and use 40 lbs. of fishing nets from the ocean.

Our printed swimsuits are made of 78% recycled polyester and 22% elastane. The recycled polyester is made from pre and post-consumer materials, such as plastic bottles. The fabric is then printed using a sublimation process which is waterless, which means there is no chemical or dye run-off during printing. All the materials used in the printing process are recycled, including cardboard, inks and transfer paper.

Trim

Our main labels are made of 70% recycled polyester and our size/care/content labels are made of 100% recycled polyester.

Our hygienic liners in each swimsuit are 100% compostable.

Our packaging and hangtags are made up of 100% recycled Kraft paper, and our thank you cards are made of 100% recycled card stock.

Being a small business means it is hard to meet factory minimums to purchase certain trims that may be more environmentally friendly. We hope that with the growth of our business we may be able to meet those minimums, which includes recycled polyester sewing threads.We continue to source and find the most environmentally friendly options for all our trims.

Quality

Being environmentally friendly means high quality because every time we use a product and we discard it, which includes clothing, it contributes to waste. The very nature of polyester is that it takes a considerable time to break down. By creating products that last longer, we minimize the need to replace the items frequently.

Design

We design our products considering the construction of our styles in paper pattern form and also considering how we design our prints in order to minimize the amount of fabric or material consumption and wastage involved.
