BIODEGRADABLE KNITTED

DYNAMICALLY KNITTED SWIMWEAR MADE FROM BIODEGRADABLE POLYMER YARNS THAT DO NOT HARM THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT

The project

OCEAN WEAR proposes a new concept by creating the first swimwear product in the world, 100% made for the ocean. Dynamically knitted swimwear will be developed using circular design using biodegradable polymer yarns, which will not affect the aquatic environment. The biodegradable swimwear collection will help raise our awareness of the ocean and aquatic needs benefiting from an outstanding concept of quality, innovation and beauty.
