ALICIA SWIM swimwear fabric is made in Italy using Econyl, a high-quality technical yarn created from regenerated nylon. Most of the sources for Econyl raw materials are fishing nets intercepted in coastal areas, which otherwise would end up in landfill or would endanger marine animals. Every 10,000 tons of Econyl saves 70,000 barrels of crude oil and 57,000 tons of CO2 emissions that would have been used in the production of new fabric.
When you make a purchase with ALICIA SWIM, you automatically contribute to sustaining marine life in the delicate eco-system of the Indian Ocean. A portion of the company’s profits are donated to the Mauritius Marine Conservation Society (MMCS). MMCS is a non-governmental, non-profit organization dedicated to providing education and conservation of the marine environment in and around the island.
