Bobtail squid might just be the cutest things in the ocean. Not only are they absolutely stunning but they also have some quirky characteristics. They camouflage themselves by burying into the sand to hide from predators.

Bobtail squid have a variety of threats although they aren’t currently listed as endangered. One threat to all squid is  growing noise pollution in our oceans—from sources such as offshore drilling, ship motors, sonar use and pile driving.

We are so proud to be using recycled plastic fabric in our suits. Our suits are not only ethically made, but are as eco friendly as they can be. Our suits are made from Carvico Vita fabric, which is made up of 78% ECONYL recycled nylon yarn. 

ECONYL is made of 100% recycled plastic and ghost fishing nets. Vita results in a drastically lower carbon footprint without compromising on quality. Our swimwear is stretchy, soft and breathable with factor 50 UV protection.

If you want to know all the fascinating ins and out of the process we have created a blog all about the material itself here. Importantly the fabric is really high quality. It’s soft and a really resilient weave. We have has the most incredible feedback from regular divers who have reported no fade or piling even once work after hundreds of dives. The most sustainable swimwear is the suit which will last you the longest. We hope to see people wearing their suits for years to come!

Handmade in Bali

We are a small company with sustainability and ethics always at the forefront without compromising on quality. Our sustainable swimwear is more than just a special fabric.

Our swimwear is handmade by a local team who all work from the comfort of their homes on their own schedule. This is providing flexible work for many local men and women who may otherwise not have this opportunity.

We minimise waste by using scraps for hair scrunchies (for sale soon) and using printing techniques will minimal chemical waste. Throughout our supply chain no plastic is used for wrapping the suits or in any tags.

Have read here on exactly how we make our swimwear in Bali and please get in touch with any questions.

    I love this body suit more than I can say. I ordered a size 14 but Charlie advised they ran small so I changed my order to 16 and it fits perfectly. I’m a kayaker and it’s the most comfortable and sun safe swim suit I have ever owned. The colors are glorious too.

    I absolutely love my bobtail swimsuit. It fits me perfectly and it is so comfortable. I’ve practically been living in this swimsuit for the past few months while diving and doing my DM course.
