Small changes make a big impact. That's why we've partnered with the Aquafil Group who produce sustainable fabric made with Econyl™ a 100% nylon fibre recycled from post-consumer materials, which prove to be two times more resistant to chlorine, sunscreen and oil than competitors fabrics.
Our collection is made from a thoughtfully selected range of eco friendly yarn and fabrics.
The Recycled fabric. This is the standard weight component of the duet, it is beautiful to handle, has great stretch, powerful retention (remains tight) and tells a wonderful tale. It begins with a dedicated and hardworking organisation called 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 together with other nylon waste by Aquafil® 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 for everyone in this one story.
The Compression fabric. Besides being great for our environment, it's stand out feature in a nutshell - It gives good hugs. Almost similar to Neoprene (328gsm), yet far more superior, it is produced in Italy with the highest of Eco Sensitive practices in every stage of the yarns' production. To wear it disguises bumps, and enhances a firm and shapely body. We've created our designs with this fabric in mind to enhance all of your best assets. It has incredible stretchability, with retention at the same time, is chlorine resistant and quick drying.
Both fabrics above feature built-in UPF 50+ sun protection, but still we encourage you to wear sunscreen.
Our collection has been thoughtfully assembled for each individual design to co-exist and look stylish with any other piece in the collection.
