We design our swimwear in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. With your needs in mind, so that your journey in the water is light and joyful. Our partners along the value chain share our values and our relationship is based on trust and respect.
Our collections are small and fabric leftovers are now turned into little bags. This reduces production waste and minimizes dead stock and the bags provide a reusable packaging solution.
In 2020 we launched the TRY-AT-HOME box. This concept allows you to try 3 of our swimsuits in the comfort of your home. At the same time, it reduces back and forth shipment due to exchanges. For shipping in Switzerland, we work with the Swiss Post who fully offsets resulting carbon emissions.
We are proud of our PURE collection. It is made in Italy, close to Como, by a family-run manufacture. Their skilled and experienced seamstresses master a wide range of techniques. We visit the site regularly and closely monitor the process from prototyping to final production.
The fabric used for these pieces is made of ECONYL®, 100% regenerated nylon fiber from fishnets and other nylon waste. The waste is recovered from the ocean, landfills and the nylon industry, and is transformed by Aquafil into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. This process contributes to the reduction of plastics landing in the environment and to significantly lower carbon emissions for its production.
The PURE collection fabric is of the highest quality, which will please both swimmers in search of a long-lasting product and women looking for enhanced support and hold.
SUPPORT AND PADDING
Comfort is crucial to us. Some of our swimsuits harbor removable cups for enhanced breast support and coverage. Yet with currently no sustainable solution on the market, we won’t provide removable cups anymore. The double lining of all our suits should provide enough support, still the new suits will let you use your own.
Take-back scheme to give a second-life to your used swimsuits
Inspired by the circular economy, iCEEP is a mobile application that connects brands to their customers allowing them to return their used items and be rewarded for it from the comfort of their homes.
Simply download the App ( App Store or Google Play) and register to become part of the iCEEP community and a “zero waste hero”. In the app, you choose the type of product you would like to return and get rewarded with a 10% reduction on your next purchase per item sent back. iCEEP is taking care of the shipment and storage and together we are looking for solutions to make use of the swimsuits. Be it second-hand or regeneration, we will let you know here of any developments.
SWISS TRIPPLE IMPACT (STI)
We are part of the STI program since Fall 2020. Over 9 to 12 months, we will develop targets that will contribute to the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our progress will be measured and used to assess the contribution of Swiss companies to the realization of the SDGs.
The Swiss Triple Impact (STI) is an engagement program for moving the Swiss ecosystem effectively towards a resilient economy. It is initiated by the non-profit organization B Lab Switzerland. This program, unique at the European level, assists Swiss companies to measure their contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and thus to identify the most important areas for improvement, while at the same time opening up new business opportunities and boosting innovation. The STI program creates a dynamic allowing commitment across the country, with an overall target to engage more than 3,000 companies in a wide range of sizes and sectors.
