Sustainability is at the heart of everything Saturday Swimwear produces and stands for. Owner and designer, Emily Laplume, sews each piece herself in her converted Ram Promaster van as she travels around the USA. Saturday Swimwear’s fabric is made from a regenerated nylon derived from used and discarded fishing nets, fabric scraps and used carpets. This regenerated nylon reduces the impact of nylon production by 80% compared to virgin nylon production. This material is blended with XTRA Life Lycra to achieve superior durability and 50+ UPF sun protection. All Saturday Swimwear packaging is made from 100% biodegradable and compostable materials including recycled paper hang tags with soy based inks. Saturday Swimwear is a women-owned company and all their products are handmade in the United States.
