Sustainability is the core value of Naayswimwear. All our fabrics are sustainable. We also use eco-friendly hygienic liners, handtags and our swimwear packaging is biodegradable. Our mission is to make effortless designs that celebrates every woman’s body by using the most comfortable and sustainable fabrics that bring our designs to life.
Carvico Vita is a techno-fabric, made of a ECONYL® regenerated Nylon that turns waste problems into fashion. Vita is versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, elegant, stretchy, soft and breathable. It is twice as resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than competitors’ fabrics. Econyl is created by an Italian company, uses synthetic waste like industrial plastic, waste fabric and fishing nets from the ocean. They get recycled and regenerated into a new nylon yarn that is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon. This special fabric does not only reduce the plastic waste in our oceans, but uses less energy and crude oil in the manufacturing process than virgin nylon.
Slow Fashion / Fair trade:
Naay is part of the “slow movement”, supporting manufacturing in respect to people, the environment and minimizing waste. All our products are handmade in small quantities and are made to last. Left – over fabrics get donated to local charity groups for reuse. The employees are paid well over the minimum wage, 13 month’s salary/year. They receive free medical insurance covering doctors’ fees for them and their families. Monthly money gets donated to Street Mums, to the welfare and education of women and children scavenging their living from rubbish dumps. With COVID, situations became more complex with many more children requiring assistance.
We care about our packing as much as we do about our swimline. We researched and sourced the most sustainable materials we could find. We use just enough materials and not more than needed, especially when shipping. Our bags are made in Mexico and are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable. They are made from plants -mostly corn. They are certified to break down within 180 days and not 1000 years like plastic.
