Made From regenerated plastic
All of our swimwear is composed of recycled materials.
These materials are mainly post-consumer plastic and industrial fishing nets that were lost and retrieved from the ocean.
Fishing nets are essentially composed of Nylon, which happens to have the same properties and performance as the Nylon used in competitive sport swimwear.
same performance without the waste
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste are recycled right back to their original purity.
That means that the nylon we use is exactly the same as a virgin nylon.
We therefore guarantee the performance of our swimwear. It is chlorine resistant, UV protective and extra durable.
finding treasure in waste
Our journey starts by rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial plastic from oceans all over the world.
The waste is then sorted and cleaned. Eventually the Nylon is extracted and processed to its purest form.
Our swimwear is exclusively composed of recycled nylon that guarantee the same level of performance as any other high performance swimwear.
Our fabrics are 100% made of material sourced from ocean waste. Fishing net, industrial plastic found in oceans, and fabric scraps.
good for earth
As well as being a solution on waste, the nylon we use reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared to creating the material from oil.
