Each & every part of our supply chain has been carefully assembled over many years to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

In the words of Kelly Slater, 11 times world champion surfer, “By collecting fishing nets that are used in the production of  ECONYL® regenerated Nylon yarns, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans we love so much”.

Ghosts Nets

Ghost fishing is a term used when fishing gear has been lost, dumped or abandoned.
Once discarded, they catch & kill marine life, attracting more marine life, creating a vicious circle that could last for thousands of years. Nobody knows the actual life of Nylon once discarded in the ocean.

Carvico

Carvico, from Italy, is the world’s largest manufacturer of plain dyed swimwear fabrics. Their recycled range, named Vita & Renew, is produced from Nylon & polyester yarn purchased from ECONYL® in Italy. Xtra Life Lycra is then added, giving the fabrics their stretch & flexibility, offering a soft hand feel with great body-hugging properties.

Almost all of Carvico’s fabrics are available pre-dyed in various plain colours.
Vita PL is the only fabric we used in Bali to print using local sublimation machines.

Chinese Recycled Fabrics

We work with a Chinese manufacturer of recycled yarns, used to produce our Eco Rib & Eco-Flex as well as Reclaim Prime & a new super Luxe Fabric known as Generic Lurex. The fabric’s texture, stretch & hand feel are almost identical to those produced by Carvico.

Note. All of our fabrics offer a UPF 50+ meaning approximately 98% of UVA radiation is blocked & are saltwater resistant.

DYES

All dyes used are Eco-certified supplied by Huntsman in the US, OEKO-TEX® & GOTS Certified, the Global Organic Textile Standard, & Dystar from Germany, protecting the future of our planet. The certification process our standards are based on guarantees maximum consumer safety. The raw materials used to produce the dyes are harvested in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
