hautenature top 5: eco friendly swimwear companies
Gearing up for summer weather, here is an inspirational post for some eco chic beachwear:
#1 Topping the list here at HauteNature is Jungle Gurl swimwear. Leave it to a former model Natalie Golonka to create a line of super sexy bikinis that are designed to work for women who love their bodies. Created out of vintage fabrics that the designer collected while globe-trotting around the world.
#2 The eco friendly line Niksters are made from soy, organic cotton and bamboo and Niksters donates a portion of sales to worthwhile causes, such as saving sea turtles.
#3 Two new designers at the San Lorenzo company, Jhonatan Figueroa and Megan Spurlock, are adding their own flavor to the Brazilian cut bikini brand.
They have come up with a line of eco-friendly, organic cotton bikinis. The fabric they use is popular with eco friendly designers and is 95 percent cotton with 5 percent spandex for stretch.
#4 Becca swimwear is made from soy fabric is so soft and silky that designers often call it “vegetable cashmere.” Grown from soybeans, this renewable resource is durable yet biodegradable. BECCA designer Rebecca Virtue says, “We all know how important it is to be conscious of our environment. Soy fabric brings a whole new level of comfort and luxury to my swimwear.”
#5 Emobi swimwear is made in Sydney Australia with water-based, nontoxic inks. All prints are original and designed in-house, using a range of environmentally friendly water based dye, that minimise the impact on the beaches & waterways combined with premium breathable UPF 50+ fabric.
