Product

What materials do you use?

We always use sustainable, chlorine-resistant swimwear fabric to make our swimsuits. Our fabrics are created from recycled waste such as fishing nets, fabric scraps & industrial plastic.

How is your fabric sustainable?

Our ECONYL® fabric is created from regenerated ocean plastic, such as abandoned fishing nets and industrial plastic. Not only does this help to remove waste from the oceans, but it also reduces the amount of new materials produced. Our recycled fabric reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with the material from oil.

How should I wash my swimwear?

Wash by hand or separately on a cold cycle, and air dry in the shade. Do not tumble dry or iron.

What's the difference between your endurance pieces and everything else?

Products labelled 'Endurance' are longer lasting in chlorinated water. These items are specially designed to hold their colour and shape after 100s of hours in chlorine. All other pieces are also chlorine-resistant, but slightly softer and stretchier, designed for comfort.
