Always looking for another way to incorporate sustainable practises into their garments, Wellington-based label Kowtow are dipping their toes into the swim wear game.

Kowtow Swim

Kowtow's sustainable swimwear is made from ECONYL, a regenerated nylon manufactured in Italy which focusses on recycling and reusing pre and post-consumer nylon waste material such as fishing nets, discarded carpets, plastic components and fabric scraps. Produced with a closed loop, ECONYL can be recycled infinitely without losing its quality. Kowtow swimwear has recycled 120kg of discarded nylon, turning it in to durable, breathable and environmentally friendly swimwear just in time for summer.

“We are always researching opportunities to introduce new products without compromising on our values. Working with an innovative technology to make beautiful and sustainable swimwear has been a new and exciting challenge for us. We’re proud of what we’ve made and we’re looking forward to sharing it with the world.” - Gosia Piatek, Kowtow Creative Director.

To accompany Kowtow swimwear, Kowtow collaborated with Australian watercolour artist and textile designer Lauren Cassar of Mirador. Cassar’s abstract hand painted prints feature on the classic Building Block Boxy Tee.

As an added bonus, the Kowtow crew have organised a coastal clean up this Sunday 4th November. Head along to Owhiro Bay between 4 and 6pm to lend a hand. BYO protective gloves and coffee cup to get fuelled by People’s Coffee as you give our coastline some love.

Drawing upon geometric shapes to form six feminine and inclusive styles, the collection consists of two one-piece designs, as well as bikini tops and bottoms in Marigold, Ivy, Sienna and Midnight so you can mix and match as you please.

Kowtow swimwear will be available in-store and online Thursday 1st November.
