OUR MATERIAL

Swimwear – 100% made from waste that would otherwise pollute the Earth.

ECONYL® regenerated nylony

The Sustainable & Convertible Swimwear line by "We Are Flowergirls" is sewn from recycled nylon yarn from Italy. The nylon is made from nylon waste - such as fishing nets from the oceans and aquaculture, fabric scraps from mills and carpets destined for landfill. This fabric is called ECONYL® and is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified.

Why is ECONYL® sustainable?

Waste nylon is transformed into the regenerated nylon ECONYL®.

ECONYL® yarn is an innovative, sustainable and 100% recycled nylon fibre made from old resources. After many years of development and investment, the Italian company company Aquafil brought the fibre to market in 2011 and received the German German Sustainability Award.

For every 10 tonnes of ECONYL® produced, 70 barrels of crude oil are saved, thus avoiding 57.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Instead of using crude oil as in conventional nylon production, waste is used for the ECONYL® production uses waste.

Parts of it consists of fishing nets from the oceans. Volunteer divers of the "Healthy Seas" initiative collect so-called ghost nets, in which sea creatures otherwise get entangled and die in agony. Since its launch in 2013, the initiative has already collected 453 tonnes of fishing net waste!

Fishing nets currently account for about 10% of marine litter. All collected waste is sorted and recovered into nylon in an innovative technical cleaning and regeneration process - ECONYL® depolymerisation. The end product is high-quality fibres that are in no way inferior to pure nylon. It is not only sustainable and environmentally friendly, but also extremely elastic and tear-resistant. Perfect for our wrap-around swimwear. At the same time, ECONYL® is characterised by high water resistance and fast drying.

Delivery route:

The production of our ECONYL® fabric is in Italy. The supply chain of our swimming costume therefore originates in Italy. The fabric is sent to our tailor shop in Hungary, where the swimwear is sewn, and directly to our "We Are Flowergirls" atelier in Vienna. 100% plastic-free and packaging-free.

Certificate:

Our recycled fabric has the OEKO-TEX Recycled Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX Certificate.

"Recycled nylon is not inferior to nylon made from new resources. So we can create new products without using new resources."

We look forward to seeing you!
