Our regenerated nylon fabric:
It is important that we address energy efficiency and waste, we now only make swimwear using regenerated fabrics (as well as contributing 20% of profits from this to save the sharks around the world).
Our fabric off-cuts are all donated to IBUIBU, a charity based in Bali who use them to make beautiful handmade dolls and toys, made by mothers who were previously begging or trash picking. This charity helps by empowering impoverished mothers with training and creating incomes and micro business opportunities. They also provide nutrition medical aid and schooling to street kids. They are amazing, check them out https://www.facebook.com/balistreetmums/
We use two different fabrics ECONYL® regenerated Nylon and REPREVE® fabric.
ECONYL® regenerated Nylon is Nylon made by recovering nylon waste - such as fishing nets from the oceans and aquaculture, fabric scraps from mills and carpets destined for landfill – and turning it into virgin quality nylon yarn.
REPREVE® fabric is fabric made from recycled plastic bottles.
Where we can, we use organic or sustainable options. Our cotton is recycled or 100% organic, we also use other more sustainable fabrics like Linen and Bamboo and Tencel.
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.
