We are a social enterprise "My swimwear" LLC that has created brand SWIMBE. We offer custom-made, personalized, sustainable swimwear for everyone - women, men and kids. We are unique as there are no other company in the world that brings personalization together with sustainable apparel manufacturing. Why our garments are sustainable:
1. we use fabrics made from regenerated plastic waste. Outer fabric is VITA PL made from PET bottles, lining RENEW SOUL is made from old fishing nets, carpets etc. Our partner is Carvico - company in Italy that manufactures these fabrics.
2. we use every bit of cut-offs created in the manufacturing process. We use them to make scrunchies, head bands, small bags fro swimwear etc. Also we donate these cut-offs to NGOs who can use them in their activities, e.g., workshops for people with special needs. For the small part that is left over, we are now looking for solutions to give it for energy/heat production in one building materials’ producer's factory i...

For the small part that is left over, we are now looking for solutions to give it for energy/heat production in one building materials’ producer's factory in Latvia.
3. we collect microplastic. We are the 1st company in Latvia (in the world?) who have given their products for testing on microplastic pollution. Results showed that the largest part - 56% - of microplastic comes out in the 1st washing. So we are washing every garment before giving it to our client using collection bag from Guppy Friend and in the near future we will put outer filter from Planet care to maximize the amount of pollution gathered in the washing process.
4. we make only when client orders. We do not make ready-to-wear collections with tens or hundreds of peaces, without knowing - will anyone buy them. We use raw materials and make product only when client places order. In such manner we are not creating potential waste from peaces that nobody bought.
5. we use sublimation technique - that allows us to buy only white fabric and make each garment 100% according to customer's order. That reduces both raw material waste as we cannot know how many colors will customer order, and we ensure that client will use our swimwear for long time as it is personal, one of a kind. Besides that sublimation is free from water - no pigments go to wastewater systems.
6. we make each garment according to customers measures so swimwear will fir perfectly, just how the clients want's it. That allows us to attend every person regardless of their body peculiarities, e.g., if they are tall or petite, with small or large bust, wide hips, scars etc. We see beauty in everyone.
