The textile industry has major effects on the environment. No one can deny this, and certainly not us.
In our drive to create more sustainable ways of producing and creating, we have opted to use recycled materials. We produce less—but better.
A nature-loving process
ECO FROM FABRICS TO HARDWARE
Fabrics. Our swimsuits are entirely made using light and comfortable material made from recycled plastic bottles (the lining included!).
Zippers. The zippers are made from recycled materials, and are then recycled.
Labels. Even the labels are made of organic cotton.
Swingtags. For boutiques, Aima Dora eco swimwear provides the labels using recycled cardboard.
Packaging. The packaging sleeves are made in the same material as your bathing suit to avoid the use of plastic.
Aima Dora eco swimwear continues to seek the most eco-friendly solutions to produce the swimwear, the supply of sustainable raw materials and the shipment.
DID YOU KNOW?
About 30% of the purchased material isn’t actually used during the production process. In fact, it ends up in landfills during the cutting phase. Aima Dora eco swimwear don't discard the material.
Instead, they recycle it by working in collaboration with a number of organisations in Madagascar. The waste is then transformed into pillows, rugs and even fabric pet toys… All intended for the local population to use.
Our dream is for our swimsuits to have more than one life… You give new life to your swimsuit when you wear it beyond the beach, but also when you decide to part with it.
Asking you to return it to us would only rack up the item’s carbon footprint, particularly as it gets shipped.
We strongly encourage you to drop them off at your nearest textile collection bank so they can be recycled.
