OUR SWIMWEAR MATERIAL
At the start of our brand launch in 2019, THE DAYS SWIMWEAR had a clear objective in mind : To utilize a revolutionary fabric that supports the removal of marine debris from our oceans. We manufacture sustainable swimwear made of nylon waste such as recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets that have been recovered from our lands and oceans. By regenerating waste, we’re not only making it new again but we’re saving an abundance of precious, finite resources and energy while simultaneously reducing carbon emissions.
We stand behind the luxurious hand feel of our regenerated Nylon courtesy of ECONYL brand, as it is of superior quality. What is ECONYL? ECONYL, created by Italian firm Aquafil, uses synthetic waste such as industrial plastic, waste fabric and fishing nets from oceans, recycles and regenerates them into a new nylon yarn that is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon.
Not only does it look great, but the durability speaks for itself - you will be able to love your purchase and wear it confidently as it [Slow Fashion] is meant to last!
Non-Toxic Printing Process
Everyone loves a cute beach tank or tee! Here at The Days Swimwear, we wanted to create fashionable tops to pair with your swimwear - made ethically and sustainably of course!
Our Shirt Material : We chose to partner with Bella&Canvas products, because we like the way they do business here in the USA. Read more about their LA based, ethical manufacturing process here.
Our Screenprinting Process : Our NJ based partner is doing it right! We print all of our designs with non-toxic, water based ink. Prints are smooth to the touch, and easy on the environment - unlike plastic-based apparel inks. All of our shirt designs are made to order, thus avoiding wasted time, labor, energy & resources. If you love a design on the site, tell us! You will receive your shirt upon ordering within 1-2 weeks time.
*And of course, all packaging used for swimwear is used for our apparel as well. All screenprinting and shirts are made in the USA!
Trusted, Ethical Partners
We work with some of the greatest factories in the NY garment industry and Tri State area to bring you the highest quality and most ethically created clothing. As we all know, overseas production has taken its toll on American manufacturing, jobs, and preserving our history! Which is why there was no hesitation on our end to produce a sustainable brand proudly made in the USA!
We personally visit our factories multiple times during every season to ensure that the factory is a clean, safe, and respectful work environment. The owners of the factories are amazing, and the garment workers are incredibly talented and, of course, paid well and treated absolutely ethically!
On top of that, our factories provide full transparency in the manufacturing process - we have insight each step of the way on a "digitized" grid, leaving no room for guess work from sample stage through to production.
