SUSTAINABILITY

OUR MATERIALS

We use Italian recycled fabrics made of ECONYL yarn, a 100 % regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste, such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff, tulle, etc. and recycled polyester.

Allsuch materials, once they have reached the end of their useful life,instead of being disposed of in the landfill, are recovered andregenerated to be reused again. That means you can create new products and buy new products without having to use new resources.

OUR MANUFACTURERS

Samudra Swimwear is proud to be manufacturing all products locally which dramatically reduces our emissions for shipping and transporting raw materials.

Our pieces are made in Barcelona by a small atelier. The relationship with our manufacturer is always close and we make sure they comply with the highest standards of workplace ethics and environmental responsibility

We pay our workers fairly and above average, respect extrictly their rights and never call or bother when they are out of the office or during their vacation days.

OUR PACKAGING

We take care of every detail in the process and that of course includes the packaging we use. The materials we use are either recycled or recyclable and we avoid using plastics as much as we can.

Mailers

Our mailers are compostable and have "OK Compost" certification.

Boxes

Made of recycled cardboard and 100 % recyclable. Our supplier plants 1 tree with every order we make to help against reforestation.

FUTURE GOALS

Switch to 100 % recycled nylon.

We want to stop using polyester in our garments and start using only nylon. This is a higher quality material for swimwear, it is more elastic, and hugs your body and your curves softly as it gives you the perfect support (something we love about it!).

Switch to digital printing

Digital printing is a process that, compared to traditional wet printing, reduces water use (since it requires less wash and rinse cycles) and fabric waste (since we can adjust a print to fit a garment). There are also no screens or colorant baths that need cleaning.

Finding more sustainable hygienic liners

Most of the options available for this product are made of plastic and there are little sustainable options which are significantly more expensive and less efficient to protect you. As we grow, we will for sure find an environmentally friendly option for this.
