Fabrics- Since 2020, our swimwear has been produced using ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon fiber made from pre and post-consumer waste, like fishing nets, industrial plastic waste and fabric scraps. Using ECONYL® nylon instead of sourcing new nylon reduces the GWP up to 90%. This Italian fabric made out of ECONYL® fibres is versatile, having stretch, UV protection, breathability, softness, and compression. It is also twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan creams than competitors’ fabric. Our shift into sustainable nylon has not compromised our luxurious fabric quality from our previous seasons.
Other materials — We use recycled poly bags instead of conventional non-recycled plastic to minimize the negative impacts associated with using standard plastic. These 100% recycled material bags can be further recycled at grocery drop offs or where #4 flexible plastic is accepted.
Our hang tags are FSC-Certified and made from 100% post consumer recycled fiber. FSC' stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organization that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. The Forest Stewardship Council sets standards for forest products, independently certifies that these standards have been met, and bestows labels upon the products that qualify. Forest Stewardship Council certification gives customers the option to choose forest products like paper and wood that have been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. Our hang tag strings are made of 100% cotton which are biodegradable and our garment labels are woven from recycled plastic bottle yarn.
