Becoming More Sustainable
As a young brand, we strive to bring our community quality products that make them look and feel great, while finding the most sustainable and conscious ways to do so along the way. While we can't consider ourselves 100% sustainable after just our first collection, we hope to get there soon by taking the necessary steps as we grow.
We currently work exclusively with the highest caliber of fabrics that offer UPF50+ protection, fast drying technology and water-wicking properties, all of which are tested extensively through salt water, chlorine and light exposure. We aim to have little to no fabric waste with each collection and are constantly finding new ways to repurpose or donate any unused materials.
During our design process, we support local, independent women for pattern-making, modeling and fittings and employ ethically sound & fair-wage factories for the rest of our production needs.
We also avoid using all single-use plastics and ship all our products in eco-friendly, sustainable or compostable packaging and mailers, helping reduce our carbon footprint while our suits travel across the globe into your hands.
Fabrics and Materials
Less ironing, less energy, reused water, uv and biodegradable protection
Biodegradable Lycra The Fluity -(CO2)® is a knitted fabric produced with elastane and microfiber biodegradable nylon, the latter with a Brazilian technology, innovative and pioneering in the world. The polymer of nylon 6.6 has been enhanced to allow clothing made from it quickly decompose after disposal in landfills. The breakdown before took decades to occur in nylon and polyamide generic name; now is already fully decomposed in less than three years. The Fluity -(CO2)® has 50+ UV protection against ultraviolet radiation and is free of toxic chemicals to human skin according to the international standard Oeko-Tex 100 Class I.
Natural Fabrics and Fibers
In many ways, natural fabrics are better for the environment, and generally considered eco friendly alternatives to the chemically-intensive procedures involved in synthetic fabric production. Natural textiles also tend to break down quicker than manufactured fabrics, which is one of the main reasons why we strive to use the best quality materials in our collections.
