We are 2 designers, Tracey and Loren, who have a background in fashion and retail and a love for all things related to Mother Nature. All our products are designed by ourselves, hand cut and manufactured by ourselves meaning we get to keep a strict eye on important factors which make us zero – waste and we make sure all products are ethically produced.
Poly swimwear is created using the highest quality luxe Italian fabric made with Econyl - 100% regenerated nylon/Polyester constructed from post consumer materials which include ghost fishing nets collected from the ocean floor. After combining our love for the ocean with fashion and choosing the sustainable route we dove into designing a range of swimwear to celebrate a womans creativity through vibrant, bold and colourful prints used in practical, mostly reversible and adjustable styles.
Poly loungewear is made of 100% African cotton, and every link in the value – chain can be tracked & traced to be of true African origin. All processes, from seed to finished product happen right in our back yard ( Africa ) and the fabrics are manufactured in a 100% carbon neutral factory in Cape Town. HELL YES !
Poly t-shirts are made from a polyester/cotton blend. This fabric is made by PROPET, a Polyester fibre manufacturer who produce fibre from recycled plastic bottles collected all over South Africa.
