SeaMorgens currently use two different fabrics, one is made from recycled polyester and the other one is made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon. As well as being recycled, we are proud to say these fabrics are also safe and respectful of the environment thanks to the manufacturers policies aimed at safeguarding the planet. Water recovery, fumes treatment and independent production of energy are some of the reasons it complies with our sustainable vision.
ECONYL® REGENERATED YARN
The plain side of our swimwear is produced using ECONYL® regenerated yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world.
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as fossil-based nylon and has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing it's quality.
ECONYL® is then made into fabrics which are used to create our swimwear.
PET Plastic Bottles
Our printed fabric is a sustainable polyester made of a 100% regenerated yarn from PET bottles. For every kg of yarn used to produce 4 meters of sustainable fabric 48 bottles are recycled; thus, every kg of yarn from PET bottles used, prevents 1,75 kg of CO2 to be released into the atmosphere. This process of converting PET into recycled polyester actually requires 33-35% less energy than in the case of normal polyester.
Another benefit is that the garments created from recycled polyester can be recycled again and again with no degradation of quality, allowing us to minimize wastage. This means garment manufacture could potentially become a closed loop system, polyester could forever be reused and recycled.
