We strive to create a product that is both ethical & sustainable. Here is a brief look at how we do so.
From March 2019 1% of all orders will be donated to the Healthy Seas initiative. Healthy Seas was established with the aim to remove waste, in particular fishing nets, from the seas for the purpose of creating healthier oceans & recycling marine litter into textile products. They apply a 2 way approach in order to achieve their mission. Namely, recovering ghost fishing nets from our seas & ensuring discarded nets will not end up in marine ecosystems or in landfill. To learn more about what Healthy Seas do & where your 1% donation will be used visit healthyseas.org
We have partnered with a small atelier in Rimini, Italy, who have over 20 years experience producing swim & resort wear. Our choice to produce in Europe is to ensure we can visit regularly and guarantee that all employees are paid under EU guidelines and are provided with safe working conditions.
We can guarantee the safety & job security of those involved creating our garments and are proud of the relationship we have with the team.
In line with our move to Italy we have refined our fabric offering to one supplier. All swim fabric is produced using ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff, tulle etc.
Our clothing, although man made viscose, is vegan and produced using processes that try to minimise environmental impact. This high quality Italian fabric is soft to touch and printed by local suppliers in our exclusive prints and colour ways.
Made in France, we use 24 karat dipped gold hardware. The quality of this product is the highest standard, and the choice to source within Europe is to again, ensure that the makers are paid properly and treated fairly.
As we grow we will strive to maintain our high ethical & sustainable standards. If you would like to learn more about the initiatives our suppliers have created and how they are changing the face of the industry please email email@example.com
