Okay, this is going to be a very different summer and we don’t know exactly when we are going to go to the beach, or in what conditions, but what is for sure is that wherever we go we are going to need a swimsuit to put on (except for those who practice nudism).
That’s why today we want to bring you a list of brands of swimsuits and bikinis made in a sustainable way, so that we can take care of the environment also when we go to the beach.
Founded in 2020, Samudra Swimwear is a woman-led premium sustainable brand based in Spain, created to break the rules of eco-friendly swimwear.
They want to offer clothes with a young and fun style, avoiding muted colors and simple designs that are often associated with sustainable fashion. They want to break that standard, and with that idea in mind, Samudra Swimwear was born.
Their purpose is to make sustainable fashion fun, colorful and empowering, while still offering the fairest prices on the market.

In general, we see that there are more brands of swimwear and bikinis dedicated to women, as is the case with Cabuya. Their swimsuits are made of 78% Econyl® (a material 100% recycled from plastic waste), and the rest with Lycra® Xtra Life™. For their production, they work with small workshops located in the north of Portugal and Cáceres (Spain). Their packaging is very curious and unique, as it is made of jute.
