Shiny red leggings with elastic at the waist and printed stars and unicorns. Due to their composition, they can be used both as swimwear and as regular leggings. These leggings have the highest possible UV protection (UPF 50+) and are made of recycled polyamide.
The fabric used to make these fancy leggings 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.
