Peony Swimwear and Resortwear Sustainable Fabrics

ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescues from all over the world. Regular nylon is made from non-renewable petroleum oil which is a significant contributor to global warming.  Using ECONYL® regenerated nylon instead of standard nylon reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with material made from oil.

REPREVE®  Made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and plastic waste that would otherwise end up in landfills or the ocean, reduced greenhouse gases and conserves energy and water in the process.

ORGANIC COTTON  Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton. This fabric is soft, durable, natural and biodegradable. Grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilisers, organic cotton uses significantly less water, relying predominantly on rainwater. Organic cotton reduces environmental footprint and promotes safe work and better livelihoods for farmers and their families. GOTS certified organic cotton is considered the leading global standard on sustainable processing for the textile industry.

LINEN  Peony linen is 100% European Flax® Certified and made from French yarn. European Flax® certification guarantees traceability for premium linen fibre. This linen is a natural sustainable fibre, cultivated without irrigation and GMO free. Flax is grown without the need for herbicides and pesticides. There is very little waste in the farming of flax as other parts of the plant such as the seeds can be used for different products. Peony’s linen is biodegradable, long lasting and becomes more beautiful with every wear.

ECOVERO™ viscose fibres are derived from wood pulp sourced from FSC or PEFC certified sustainable sources. This innovative fabric is certified eco-responsible with the internationally recognised EU Ecolabel, a stamp of environmental excellence only awarded to products and services which have a significantly lower environmental impact. Nearly all the chemicals used during the production of ECOVERO™ are recovered and reused, and compared to conventional viscose, the production of ECOVERO™ causes 50 percent less emissions and uses half as much energy and water.

HEMP  The hemp plant is a densely growing plant, meaning it fights off competing plants on it’s own, avoiding the need for harsh chemical herbicides . Hemp naturally reduces pests, so no pesticides are necessary. Incredibly, the hemp plant returns up to 70% of the nutrients taken from the soil. Not only is hemp gentle on the environment, it also requires very little water to grow. Hemp fabric has a hand feel similar to linen and it softens to become more beautiful with every wear.
