We are now in the process of rebranding Exotic Swim and will release our first cultural collection in F/W '17.
We put sustainability at the core of everything we do. Fashion is the 3rd largest polluter in the world next to oil, and the 2nd largest consumer of water! Isn't that crazy? Our commitment to a sustainable future is stronger than ever because we know Mother Nature and all of her inhabitants deserve the absolute best. It all starts with us using ECONYL® fiber, which was created by the Italian company Aquafil. What makes this fiber so unique is that it's 100% regenerated from fishing nets and other waste materials that harm the precious ocean creatures and otherwise pollutes our beautiful water. (I can't help but do the moonwalk right now I'm so excited!)
But wait, our commitment goes beyond the usage of ECONYL® fiber; we're a member partner of the Healthy Seas Initiative. So, for every kini you purchase, 1% of sales goes directly to the recovery of those nasty fishing nets from the ocean that Healthy Seas then regenerates into the high-quality yarn we use; ECONYL® fiber!
Lastly, the extra scraps not used in the final bikini piece are recycled and made into bracelets, as opposed to being discarded in the trash or in our oceans. Also, our packaging, tags and labels are all recycled. Can’t you just hear the Earth screaming "Thank you!"
We’re not 100% sustainable as of yet. We need to invest in 100% greenhouse factories and programs that replace what we've spent on CO2 emmisions and water consumption. So, to offset that, we’ve taken the initiative of planting flowers and trees in our local community, helping Mother Nature soak up that CO2. Come with us on this journey, we can't do it without you.
