Pre consumer

What happens before you get your pieces?

The swimwear we make not only incorporates recycled materials but also follows a comprehensive and responsible production process, from its yarn origins to its recycling initiatives.

1.  From raw materials to yarn (Slovenia & Northern Ireland).

ECONYL® regenerated nylon: The process begins with the collection of pre and post consumer waste. This waste is meticulously sorted, cleaned, and regenerated through a pioneering process. The reclaimed nylon undergoes a process to create a high-quality yarn, ready to be woven into fabrics. This is done in Slovenia.
Elastane yarn renowned for its quality and durability, made in Northern Ireland. 

2. From yarn to final fabrics (Italy)

Our fabrics undergo the transformative journey from yarn to final form within the skilled hands of artisans in Italy, where meticulous craftsmanship meets unrivaled expertise in dyeing. Italy's renowned textile heritage contributes to the creation of fabrics that seamlessly marry quality, sustainability, and timeless elegance. 

3. From fabrics to garments (Indonesia)

The transition from fabrics to garments is a seamless fusion of creativity and precision. Each piece of swimwear is expertly cut and sewn. Marking the transformation of recycled fabrics into stylish, high-quality swimwear. 

We're currently working on an alternative to manufacture closer to home, to reduce the cycle's transportation needs. In the meantime you can read about why Bali (Indonesia) is the best choice for us.

4. Ready to wear, packaging (France)

Once we have our finished products, we store them safely. Upon ordering we add all relevant hang tags, hygiene liners, stickers and make sure it's packaged properly for you. Based on your specific location, it will reach you by road or air transportation.
