Burgundy-colored swimsuit with frills at the waist and digitally printed flowers in red and blue. The swimsuit has adjustable shoulder straps and protects against the sun’s UV rays with the highest ultraviolet protection factor, UPF 50+.
The fabric used to make this swimsuit is made of 78 % recycled polyamide, which has been manufactured by using mostly residual fishnets, old carpets and production waste. Over 600 000 metric tons of fishnets end up in the world’s oceans each year and everything from dolphins to seals and smaller fish get caught in these abandoned nets. The nets drift with the strong currents and scrape the bottom surface, destroying the coral reefs of the oceans. These reefs are essential to the survival and the health of both the world’s oceans and human beings.
This sustainable swimsuit is therefore part of the process that helps clean up the world’s oceans.
