- Conventional swimwear fabrics are made out of synthetic fibers (primarily nylon) that take hundreds of years to break down.
- Instead of creating more synthetic fabrics, they upcycle already existing nylon that comes from rescued ghost fishing nets, ocean-bound plastic and textile remnants.
- Rescued nylon goes through a complex regeneration process and is turned into high-quality, soft, sustainable fabrics, out of which their sustainable bikinis are made.
- By recycling already existing nylon, they not only avoid creating more nylon and further filling our landfills, but are also able to clean up the oceans and save natural resources that are required in production of virgin nylon, like water and oil.
- Fun fact:It is estimated that 46% of the 79 thousand tons of ocean plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is made up of fishing nets.
But that’s not all! The brand is ethical, too.
Their bikinis are manufactured in a happy, family-like environment in beautiful Bali. Their seamstresses are paid double the minimum wage, receive free health insurance for themselves and their families, and have free meals at work. Most materials used in production are recycled or sustainably sourced. And did we mention their product and shipping bags are biodegradable and are certified HOME COMPOSTABLE? Also, all their dyes used in production of fabric and packaging are toxin-free and are environmentally friendly. They are water or soy based (not petroleum), and do not emit harmful gases when they break down.
