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.

Full Transparency

For every garment, we disclose its supply chain traceability, environmental footprint and cost structure. The more we know, the better decisions we make, the more we cherish what we buy and the longer those items will last.

      With a permanent collection and direct-to-you sales, we don't have wholesale markups, deadstock, sales or discounts. The traditional retail price shows what we'd have to charge if we sold our garments through multi-brand stores (wholesale) - 6x the landed cost. Instead, our markup is between 2.5-4.5x landed cost depending on product and country characteristics. It covers the cost of our garments and a lot more: VAT, cost of sales (shipping, warehousing, payment, web systems etc.), marketing, admin (salaries, rent, product development etc.) and financial costs, while maintaining a slim profit to keep investing in our mission.

      73% Overall traceability

      100% Recycled. Not 100% Sustainable

      We partnered with a Portuguese mill specialized in swimwear to develop a fabric from Seaqual™ (a yarn made from ocean plastics and plastic waste collected by fishermen, non-profits, and volunteers around the French and Spanish coastlines). Our Swim Shorts inherit all the polyester performance and durability standards - fast drying, non-fading, and moisture-wicking - with the lowest possible impact.

      • Body fabric: 130gsm 2/1 fine twill 
      • Mesh: 100% Recycled PET (50% Seaqual™ 50% Recycled PET)
