Behind the Brand: Apricoss

Eco-Friendly. Small Scale Production. Vegan.

Classic, beautifully designed swimwear made using carefully chosen sustainable materials. Apricoss began with the idea that good quality, perfect fit and fashion-forward swimwear designs should coexist together. Apricoss take a thoughtful approach to design and construction: production is sustainable and each piece is made to be worn season after season. The collection is built on simplicity, creative thinking and an aesthetic that responds to the way we live.

Sustainability is a key part of the Apricoss story - the all black Apricoss swimsuit is made with ECONYL® - 100% regenerated nylon and polyester fiber from post-consumer materials. The innovative Regenerated System is based on sustainable chemistry. With this process, nylon and polyester contained in waste, such as carpets, clothing and fishing nets, is transformed back into virgin raw material without any loss of quality.

ECONYL® Regeneration System recovers pre and post-consumer waste material and regenerate it giving it a new life and contributing to a cleaner environment. Pre-consumer waste can be production discards, industrial plastic components, and textile scraps. Post-consumer waste, the most challenging waste to get rid off, is waste dumped in landfills or abandoned in nature with big environmental footprint.

The ECONYL® Regeneration system uses a unique chemical process that creates regenerated yarn from waste while keeping the same characteristics of Nylon coming from fossil raw material. The waste material that would otherwise harm the environment is used to save precious fossil raw material that is normally used in the production of Nylon.
