Our Story - Recycled Fabrics

We are the leading importer to Bali of sustainable recycled Eco-friendly Swim & Sportswear fabrics. The Nylon we use is made from salvaged fishing nets (ECONYL) & other post-consumer waste with the Polyester made from discarded & repurposed plastic bottles (Carvico VITA PL). We import our fabrics via weekly flights from Italy & the US. As well as purchasing fabrics from known suppliers, we also blend our own fabrics using American (REPREVE) Taiwan & Korea yarns. These fabrics are then sold under license to brands such as Victoria’s Secret, Carbon 38 & PE Nation. All fabrics offer some or all of the following attributes. Body enhancing, UV & Chlorine resistance, perfect compression, moisture wicking. All fabrics have a super soft hand feel.

ECONYL

“By collecting the fishing nets that are used to produce ECONYL® regenerated nylon products, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans we love so much”

Kelly Slater

Fashion-forward brands and designers use ECONYL® regenerated nylon to create beautiful products that also drive the industry towards a sustainable future. ECONYL® regenerated nylon performs exactly the same as brand new nylon but gives you a sustainable edge, turning trash into treasure. ECONYL® regenerated nylon opens up endless possibilities for those who make & wear apparel.

ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon is the leading, most trusted, branded performance fiber made recycled fishing nets & other post-consumer materials.

Ghost Nets

‘Ghost Fishing’ is what is referred to when fishing gear has been lost, dumped or abandoned, catching & killing fish & sea mammals.
Whether nets, long lines or fish traps, once discarded they catch fish & marine organisms that die & on turn attract other marine life, which then get caught, creating a vicious circle.

Nylon, being virtually indestructible once discarded, some estimate could entangle fish for up to 5,000 years.
It’s estimated that over a million mammals are killed every year in these way Inc. dolphins, whales, sea lions & the like.
