Sustainability is at the heart of everything Saturday Swimwear produces and stands for. Owner and designer Emily Laplume started out sewing each piece of eco friendly swimwear at her home in Oregon. They have grown to ethically produce their pieces in small batches with a small sew studio in Portland, OR. Saturday Swimwear uses fabric made from 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. Saturday Swimwear blends this material with XTRA Life Lycra to achieve superior durability and 50+ UPF sun protection. They also use recycled and curbside recyclable paper mailers and recycled paper hang tags with soy-based inks.
