Our regenerated nylon fabric:
It is important that we address energy efficiency and waste, we have made further steps to doing this by using renewable fabric for our new line deco (as well as contributing 20% of profits from this to save the sharks around the world). To make this regenerated nylon existing waste (fishing nets and plastic water bottles) are physically sought and removed from the ocean. There are 640,000 tons of fishing nets that float around the open seas (called ghost nets), causing the capture and needless death to marine mammals such as whales, turtles and birds.
The fishing nets are salvaged from the sea by a charity organisation @healthyseas who find the nets and physically remove them. They are then shredded and made into a regenerated nylon yarn by @econyl (, who also sponsor and hold programmes to raise awareness in fishing villages and communities about ghost nets and the damages that they cause), the yarn is then woven into a fabric by @carvico and this is what we import from Italy to make our swimwear.
Our effect on global warming:
by using this regenerated fabric we reduce waste in it’s production….for every 10,000 tons of of this fabric produced 70,000 barrels of crude oil and 57,000 tonnes of co2 eq. Emission are avoided. It reduces global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared to material from oil.
Where we can we use organic or sustainable options. Our cotton is recycled or 100% organic, we use other more sustainable fabrics like Linen and Bamboo.
Our swing tags and sales tags are made from recycled card and our bags are made from recycled cotton. We do not use single use plastic in our company.
