Every year, 12 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans. 90% of this sink to the sea floor. This is our raw material.
There is a huge job to be done and we believe taking small everyday actions can add up to a big difference for the world.
We’re excited to tell we’ve finally found the quality recycled swimwear fabrics made using locally sourced raw material we were looking for. We’ve teamed up with SEAQUAL™ , a Madrid-based company whose mission is to to collect plastic marine waste and upcylcled it into textile fibres.
Every day the 1500 SEAQUAL™ partner fishermen around the Spanish coasts clean over a ton of waste from the Mediterranean Sea, not just PET but also metal, rubber, glass and other materials.
The PET marine waste used for SEAQUAL™ FIBER represents around 10% of the total waste retrieved, therefore for every kilo of SEAQUAL™ FIBER produced 100 kilos of waste is cleaned from the ocean.
These fibers are then transformed into woven by our workshops in Portugal, where we all our products are manufactured.
