Description

WHALE SHARK
Gentle, docile and actually the largest fish in the ocean. These friendly giants are solitary creatures and have a lifespan of up to 100 to 150 years. They are beautifully marked with their own unique patterns of white spots and like all sharks they are not to be feared but respected. The majestic whale shark has no natural predators, except for humans.
Threats
Humans kill 3 sharks every single second. These gentle giants are killed for their fins to fulfil a demand within Chinese medicine, regardless of insufficient scientific evidence to support such beliefs. Whale Sharks are also subject to the negative impacts of ecotourism and the implications these practices have on their behaviour, they are in decline, vulnerable and confirmed endangered.

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.
