In an effort to be as environmentally friendly as possible and eliminate waste, we use REPREVE fabrics, where we can.
REPREVE is the leading, most trusted, branded performance fiber made from recycled materials (including plastic bottles). In our first collection, we have used Reprove fabrics in red and black in the Bantry Bay bikini.
How is REPREVE made?
Source Recycled Waste: Recycled plastic bottles and post-industrial waste are collected worldwide.
Make the Chip: Waste material is chopped, ground, washed, melted and reformulated into high-quality REPREVE chip.
Form the Fiber: Chip is melted into liquid polymer and extruded through tiny openings in a spinneret, creating continuous filaments that form REPREVE fiber.
Process the Yarn: Fiber becomes yarn through spinning and air-jet texturing.
Ship to Customers: Finished yarn goes into fabrics, making everyday products more sustainable.
