Our sustainable swimwear
Why we love our fabric … and why you will too!
We have teamed up with the Aquafil group who produce sustainable techno-fabric made with ECONYL®.
All NOVMBR bikini’s and one-piece swimsuits are made from this luxurious, high-quality Italian fabric. A 100% regenerated polyamide fibre which is created from post-consumer materials such as fishing nets, industrial plastic waste and other discarded nylons found in our ocean!
Check out the process below…
01 – Rescue The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.
02 – Regenerate Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon.
03 – Remake ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into carpet yarn and textile yarn for the fashion and interior industries.
04 – Reimagine The beauty of ECONYL® regenerated nylon is that it has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. We believe circular design is the future and using ECONYL® is our first step on that journey.
Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans, a total of 12 million tonnes a year! At NOVMBR we want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. Every element of NOVMBR is as sustainable & ethical as possible, from fabrics to packaging and everything in between!
So, every time you choose to purchase & wear a NOVMBR swimwear piece you are contributing to safeguarding our environment.
Thank you for helping to achieve a world that is happier & healthier!
It doesn’t stop there… Our fabric has also been tested to be two times more resistant to chlorine, suntan creams & oils than our competitors’ fabrics.
These amazing results are achieved thanks to its innovative construction and to the presence of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ .
SUSTAINABLE IS IN – PLASTICS ARE OUT
It’s not just our swimwear fabric that is eco-friendly…
All of our packaging is completely plastic free and can be fully recycled! Our eco-friendly boxes are made from recycled materials and can be recycled again once you no longer have a use for it.
Inside our eco boxes, all NOVMBR purchases are packaged in a super-cute re-usable cotton drawstring bag – perfect for storing your NOVMBR swimwear OR re-use to store ‘bits & bobs’ in your beach bag!
