ARKET’s swimwear collection for women, men and children is crafted from ECONYL, an innovative nylon yarn produced from 100% recycled materials, which considerably reduces the environmental impact of textile production. All pieces are UV-protective with UPF50+.
In the water, it's easy for fishes, turtles, and other marine animals to get stuck in ghost nets.
The @healthyseas' divers recover these deadly traps that we then regenerate – together with other nylon waste – into the ECONYL yarn ready to be used for brand new garments.
These divers made your fiber, in a way!

The waste of today is a garment of tomorrow.
Paolo works in our plant in Slovenia and prepares the fishing nets for the regeneration.
By using waste to produce the ECONYL fiber there is the double advantage of:
using discarded nylons that would otherwise be dumped into landfills or nature;
avoiding the use of oil as a raw material.
Mirjana, Jozica, Ruzica made your fiber!
They produce the ECONYL yarn that can be used for your next swimwear, leggings, socks or jacket.
As a consumer, you have the power to make the change.
Fashion Revolution starts with you.

How is it possible that you might be wearing an item also made by these men in wetsuits?

From waste to wear.
The magic happens also thanks to Zijad, Jan, Zikret. They work in our plant in Slovenia where we regenerate discarded nylons into ECONYL yarn.
Together we can change fashion.
