We put sustainability at the core of every choice we make. Most swimwear is still made
out of virgin nylon and polyester. That’s plastic…! which is not biodegradable and requires
us to keep drilling for more and more petroleum. As off-shore drilling projects increase, we
have less beautiful oceans to enjoy.
Bain de Minuit has made a different choice, to leave a lighter footprint on the planet.
Nowadays, an estimation of at least 8.8 million tons of plastic is dumped into oceans and
waterways every year. We are not increasing demand for new plastic and instead, source
fabrics made out of discarded fish nets and plastic bottles.
WHAT IS OUR SWIMWEAR MADE OF ?
Since its creation, Bain de Minuit is very proud to only source fabrics made out of 100% recycled materials.
We partner with REPREVE to source our handmade designed printed fabrics. REPREVE collect their own
plastic bottles -from landfills and oceans- to create high-quality fiber.
Our printed bikinis are made out of 100% recycled plastic, how cool is that?! Each swimwear you buy from
us uses approximately 10 recycled plastic bottles.
Our plain fabrics are made using ECONYL® regenerated nylon coming from nylon
waste such as fishing nets from the ocean and aquaculture industry, fabric scraps from
mills, and old carpets destined for landfill.
Did you know that an estimate of 640.000 tons (1.28billion pounds) of fishing gear is left
in the ocean each year? These nets can travel long distances from their points of origin
and can remain in the ocean long after they are discarded, resulting in the entrapment
and death of countless marine mammals, sea birds and fish.
Our ECONYL® fabrics are Italian imported fabrics and they are high luxury, very
stretchy and soft which makes our bikinis not only sustainable but durable.
Bain de Minuit partners only with manufactures who keep their workers safe
and maintain ethical work practices.
We make a commitment to responsible manufacturing standards.
Our shell necklaces are handmade by a local family in Bali.
We have high quality standards and consistently check our production. We
like to work in a friendly and respectful manner with our Balinese team to
create unique designs.
We are committed to producing a limited quantity of pieces for each
collection and will always chose sustainability over fast-fashion.
