Kampos' Recycled Polymer Fabric Based Swimwear Collection - Sustainable Textiles Launchpad @E2expo
Kampos has launched a socially-responsible, environmentally friendly line of luxury clothing which is made of recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets that celebrates the history and beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. All products are made of recycled plastic bottles, abandoned “ghost” fishing nets, or other recycled nylon and/or organic fabrics. Every product and accessory detail has been designed to be sustainable. The products are recyclable after use.
The men's and women's swimwear collection uses Newlife and Econyl Fabrics respectively.
Newlife™ it’s a unique, complete and certified system of recycled polyester filament yarns coming 100% from postconsumer bottles made by the Sinterama Group.
Kampos uses the fabric to designs its signature mean's swimwear collection. Each product is 100% sustainable and can be recycled again, infinitely.
Econyl is proprietary of Aquafil and is obtained through the recycling and purification process of plastic waste collected from oceans, fishing nets, and textile fibre waste.
The Kampos team is comprised of friends who have a deep affection for the Mediterranean Sea and its associated lifestyle. The team came together inspired by a desire to maintain the pristine image of the Mediterranean and a common goal to preserve its cleanliness, sustain the marine that brings it to life and ensure its vibrancy for generations to come. A bevy of high fashion clothing and accessories made from recycled materials like plastic bottles and abandoned or “ghost” fishing nets, as well as other 100% organic fabrics, many of which are threatening the future of those who live in countries surrounding the Mediterranean and the marine life that live within it.
