Our swimshorts are made using SEAQUAL® YARN, a high quality 100% post-consumer recycled polyester yarn containing upcycled Marine Plastic from the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE. SEAQUAL® YARN contains approximately 10% Upcycled Marine Plastic (from plastic marine litter), the remaining 90% is post-consumer PET from land sources.
Our knitwear uses Cottonforlife - organic long staple and extra long staple cottons from Egypt to realise the finest organic yarns.
Water and energy is rationed during the cotton processing, using technologies that save resources through careful waste management and waste water control, ensuring no discharge of hazardous and polluting substances into the local environment.
Finally we use dyes and chemicals made without heavy metals or other hazardous substances to finish our knits.
All our jersey is 100% organic cotton.

GOTS goes way beyond organic cotton, and it goes way beyond safe working conditions. GOTS, which has been around since 2006, is universally recognized as a way to confirm that an entire supply chain is socially and environmentally responsible.
