Boob - Old fishing nets become new swimwear

Old fishing nets become new swimwear at Boob

The Swedish maternity fashion brand Boob helps clean up the oceans and reduce the waste mountain as fishing nets and old carpets are made into swimwear for the spring and summer collection 2016. All garments in the swimwear collection have Boob’s smart double function for pregnancy and nursing and are made from sustainable materials, such as ECONYL® yarn and elastane. The ECONYL® fibre is a recycled polyamide – regenerated from, for example, marine waste.

By swimming in Boob swimwear you contribute to healthier seas and less waste. The swimwear collection is made from ECONYL® yarn - a polyamide made from 100 per cent regenerated waste, such as abandoned fishing nets and used carpets. Boob’s Fast Food Sports Singlet is also made from this sustainable material. The garments are soft, stretchy and fast drying – excellent properties for swimwear and sports fashion.

Ghost fishing nets litter the oceans and harm the marine environment. Through the ECONYL® Regeneration System, organisations such as Healthy Seas collect abandoned fishing nets. The recovered nets, together with other waste, are regenerated into ECONYL® yarn, used to make sustainable textile products, such as Boob swimwear.

In 2015, 83 per cent of Boob’s products were made from sustainable materials and following a conscious decision[M1] , all new products in the spring and summer 2016 collection are made from green materials. All Boob’s products are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and made in Europe. The ECONYL® fibre is made from 100 per cent regenerated consumer and industrial waste.
