Our Fabrics

The Lou Lou St Cruz luxury swimwear brand has teamed up with Aquafil, world leaders of recycled luxury fibre production. Recycled from neglected fishing nets, and other nylon waste, this yarn utilises the ECONYL® Regeneration System Technology to create a closed loop system. Meaning our pieces are also recyclable. A pilot program for collection of produced pieces is currently being carried out, but we don't expect our designer swimsuits will want to be returned any time soon. 

Our collection is made from a duet of eco friendly yarn and fabrics, including the NeoPerformance. Besides being great for our environment, it's stand out feature in a nutshell - It gives good hugs. Almost similar to Neoprene, yet far more superior it's produced with the highest of Eco Sensitive practices in every stage of the yarns production. Produced in Italy. It disguises bumps in the wrong places, and enhances a firm and shapely body. We've created our designs with this fabric in mind to enhance all the good bits that you got. It has incredible stretchability, with retention at the same time, is chlorine resistant and quick drying. Finding this fabric provided the extra boost needed to lock ourselves into creating Lou Lou St Cruz as a luxury swim label. It is truly wonderful to wear.

Both the yarn and the fabric present themselves equally luxurious, and work very well together when combined as a two-piece. Our designs within the collection accommodate for each piece to match wherever possible, for a 'complete' approach to showcasing a collection.

The Recycled componentry of this yarn tells a wonderful tale, and it is one that helped make up our minds initially to begin the Lou Lou St Cruz brand. Its begins with a dedicated and hardworking organisation The Healthy Seas Initiative, a Worldwide ocean waste rescue organisation. These guys trawl for fishing nets from the bottom of our oceans, and assist our precious eco system to live a wonderful and harmonious life, diminishing the wrath of Ghost fishing.  The fishing nets are then thoroughly cleaned, dried and regenerated by Aquafil® together with other nylon waste into the ECONYL® yarn that creates our luxury fabric. To show our respect and encouragement to the Healthy Seas Initiative, we are currently dedicating 100% of our distributable profits to assist in the support they provide our earth. So much purpose in one story.

Both fabrics above feature built-in UPF 50+ sun protection. This does not mean you can refrain from wearing sunscreen. This just gives a boost to know the extra protection is there. We encourage all of our customers to wear sunscreen.

All of our products come with performance specs tags alongside our hangtag, where you can see the approval stamps and guarantees.
