Every time you buy an AV swimsuit,
5% goes to cleaning the oceans!
For us, design and sustainability go together. One must not compromise the other. In order to create our Premium Seawear products, we combine high quality and well thought-out design with eco-conscious approaches, innovative materials and limited productions.
We care about the environment and we try to minimise our impact in terms of:
1. Materials and waste
2. Packaging and labelling
3. Production and processes
4. Support of NGOs
MATERIALS & WASTE
The designs utilise luxury Italian and Greek fabrics, partnered with complex construction and considered details.
For our one-colour fabrics we use ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon made from abandoned fishing nets and nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world.
Our printed fabrics are sourced from Greek producers, and they are digitally printed in-house, at our specialised workshop in Athens.
All fabrics are certified under STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
We support recycling; by bringing back to us your used/old AV products, you get a 5% discount on your next purchase!
PRODUCTION & PROCESSES
We embrace the “Slow Fashion” concept; limited pieces, high quality certified textiles and materials, durable products.
We Learn to design for longevity;
High quality fabrics that last.
Classic, Minimal design approach. Style that can be worn throughout the years.
All pieces are handmade and 100% produced in Greece, in a small, specialised factory.
