Ethics All our products are made in a factory in Bulgary, where the employees earn more than a living wage and have a safe and responsible work environment. All the embroidery is added to the items at a factory specialized in embroidery in Italy. Both the factory in Bulgary and Italy are OEKO-TEX® certified, which is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. To secure customer confidence and high product safety.

Imagine having a bikini that will be your go-to bikini’s for the upcoming years, that will keep it’s quality. (Please not that the points above only apply when the items are taken care of properly. Don’t forget to read the Care instruction to keep the quality of the bikini at its best!)
Hand wash in cold or lukewarm water with a gentle swim-wear suitable detergent after each use. ‘Normal detergent’ suitable for washing machines is too strong for swimwear fabric and affects the quality and durability of the piece. Never wash your suit in the washing machine, not even on the delicate/hand-wash cycle.
Dry in the shade.
Do not twist or “wring out” to dry. Instead, lay the item down between two towels and press to absorb the water.
Make sure your suit is completely dry before putting away.
Throwing your bikini in the washing machine and/or dryer may feel like the easiest option, but it would be such a waste if the colour, fit, and surface of the bikini wouldn’t be pretty anymore.
