Our Conscious Approach

As a small independent brand, we try our best to be mindful of our carbon footprint and minimize the negative impact that textiles can have to our planet. In a world of fast fashion, we take pride in our slower process that strives to deliver a responsibly made product. We are proud that we have aligned ourselves with local artisans that share our brands passion and pursuit for quality and sustainability.

 

Each piece is handmade from fabric woven in Italy using sustainable materials that are OEK-TEK Certified. Most swimwear is made using ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon derived from pre and post consumer waste, that once they’ve reached the end of their useful life, are recovered and regenerated. This high performance, compact and non-see through material ensures a perfect fit, following the body’s every move. It also allowed us to create a unique sizing model, thanks to its super elastic technology, which helps in reducing over-production of sizes.


Our swimwear is made in New York by a small family-owned and operated facility that practice ethical and fair work environments. Manufacturing in NY supports our local community and allows us to oversee the entire production process.

 

1% For Healthy Seas Initiative

Cleaning the seas of marine litter

Healthy Seas was founded in 2013 to tackle the ghost fishing phenomenon that is responsible for the needless death of marine animals. Through cleanups with volunteer divers and by working with stakeholders of the fishing sector toward marine litter prevention, we collect waste nets and ensure they become a valuable resource.

Their approach contributes toward a solution to ocean pollution, now and for the future.

Nylon fishing nets are regenerated together with other nylon waste by Aquafil into ECONYL® yarn while the other types of plastics are also reused or recycled. Aquafil regenerates the recovered nets – together with other nylon waste – into brand new ECONYL® yarn for the fashion and interior industries.

"Our core mission as a brand is to produce a sustainable and responsibly made product and align ourselves with artisans and organizations who share the same values as we do.  Healthy Seas mission resonated with us and partnering with them was a natural step in doing our part to give back" - Marina Malafis, Founder Series The Label
