Swimsuit designer Jessica Rey has developed sustainable swimsuit designs. Rey has partnered with Italian fabric company Aquafil to create designs that incorporate Econyl yarn, composed of 100 per cent regenerated nylon waste, such as abandoned fishing nets, production scraps, and carpet fluff. She will be using Econyl in all her swimsuit designs this year.

Rey’s collection, which includes one-piece, two-piece and kids’ swimwear lines, offer popular designs with women’s confidence, comfort, and timeless style in mind. Rey has incorporated Econyl Yarn, groundbreaking recycled materials from the ocean. The waste is transformed into a durable, lightweight, and breathable textile, made new through Aquafil’s cutting-edge regeneration system, a pioneering example of the circular economy in action – offering the same quality and performance as traditional nylon, but with the ability to be regenerated an infinite number of times without any loss in quality.

“I have three small children of my own and I want them (as well as their own children in the future) to be able to grow up enjoying our planet’s natural resources just as our generation did,” said Rey. “It is heartbreaking to see photographs and footage of the tremendous amounts of unnecessary waste that ends up in our oceans and in landfills. Our designs celebrate women’s confidence, and as swimwear, they are of course a tribute to the ocean as well. It made sense that we do our part to help heal our planet in some way. The more waste that can be removed and repurposed, reducing demand for virgin fibers, the better off our oceans will be.” (RR)
