UK-based sustainable swimwear brand F and Wild has unveiled its maiden collection.
What makes the debut noteworthy is that the new collection is made from regenerated plastic waste comprising fishing nets cleaned from oceans.
The new Lamu collection from the swimwear brand, founded by Njoki Muchuki, features a plunging, double-layered Alice swimsuit that’s designed to optimise curves for a sophisticated vintage look and two bikini styles designed to be mixed and matched.
Besides, the Dee is a bandeau with a high-waist bottom, whereas Kami is a gathered tie-back halter neck bikini top with a curve-flattering bottom.
To customers’ delight, each piece comes in midnight blue, terracotta and animal print colour.
Importantly, the F and Wild swimwear use eco-friendly Econyl, a versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, soft and breathable stretch fabric created from regenerated nylon. Additionally, these offer UV protection and are ultra-chlorine resistant.
F and Wild’s commitment to sustainability could also be gauged from the fact that all its products are designed and handmade in Southeast London, where Njoki Muchuki has been ensuring living wages are paid and all ethical working standards are met.
The brand’s one-piece suits are available in sizes from 8-18, and cost 130 pounds. Bikini tops and bottoms cost 50 pounds and 60 pounds, respectively, and are available in sizes 8-14.
