Overview +

Officially an essential since the 1800's, after nude public bathing was prohibited in most of Europe, The Swim Shorts are here to complete your summer wardrobe. Balancing maximum performance with minimal impact, we've sourced and developed every component from scratch to create a swim short made entirely of recovered marine plastics and recycled PET. They're cut from a fast drying, non-fading fabric and equipped with a breezy mesh that hugs in all the right places. The embellishment is subtle with tonal, stitched aglets and a white drawstring for a slight contrast. Pair them with a linen shirt to go full-riviera, or pop over a Grey sweatshirt for that effortlessly clean summer look.

Understanding and appreciating the value of our clothing is fundamental in learning to live with less. The more we know, the better decisions we make, the more we cherish what we have, the longer it’ll last and - as a result - the less we’ll need.

        100% Recycled. Not 100% Sustainable

Since our inception we've been proponents of natural mono-materials, staying away from synthetics and blends as far as possible. The Swim Shorts forced us to challenge that idea and look for a synthetic material that lives up to our standards of performance and durability, with the lowest possible impact. The result: Seaqual: A yarn made of 10% ocean plastics and 90% plastic waste collected by fishermen, non-profits and volunteers around the French and Spanish coastlines. We partnered with a Portuguese mill specialised in swimwear, to developed a fabric from 70% Seaqual and 30% recycled PET, inheriting all the strengths of polyester - fast drying, non-fading and moisture wicking - without extracting any virgin material. Next, we laser cut the fabric, increasing precision and eliminating fraying and partnered with a specialized laundry facility to prewash and filter out as much microplastics as possible before the shorts get into your hands. The result is a swim short that's as clean as it gets. But don't be fooled, you're not saving the planet by buying them (or any other garment for that matter). How you care for them is as important as how and what they're made of. Make sure to check our care guides to prolong their lifetime and control microplastics when washing them. Read more about our thoughts on recycled plastics and the choice of Seaqual for our swim shorts in our blog article "Recycled Plastic Fantastic?".
