SoSo Swim was created with the hope to combat not only the climate crisis but to push for companies to do more. By investing in a piece from SoSo Swim you are supporting healthier seas, carbon neutrality at each production step, ethical pay and working conditions, and an independent female run small business.
Our fabric - Each of our swimsuits are made from ECONYL® fibre, this is a regenerated nylon that is made of pre and post consumer waste. Also this is twice as resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils. This means our pieces will last you longer.
Eco elastic - We use eco elastic in all of our swimsuits, this is manufactured in Spain with an OEKO TEX 'Made in Green' standard, meaning it is made sustainably and ethical. It is certified a 100% natural rubber.
Compostable mailer bags - ready to go back to the earth.
Tags - Our swing tags are printed on handmade eco friendly paper that is made with germination so that once you receive your swimsuit, you can remove the tag, put it in a pot and watch as your flower grows.
Our swimsuits are all hand made in the UK. This is one of the reasons our swimsuits costs more than a conventional high street swimsuit. Wages in the UK are considerably higher than in Europe and the Far East, for good reason. There are regulations to keep workers safe and with a minimum wage.
1% to healthy seas.
We also give 1% to healthy seas, the organisation that rescuers and sends abandoned fishing nets to be regenerated, together with other nylon waste, into ECONYL® nylon.
