Fourth Element's OceanPositive active swimwear range is now available.
This radical collection is manufactured from abandoned ghost fishing nets that have been harvested from the seabed by dive teams in Europe and North America.
Fourth Element combined the recycled spun nylon yarn with Lycra, and delivered a 'Grave to Cradle' solution that Dr Sylvia Earle enthusiastically inspected at last year's DEMA Show. “This is a fantastic idea, [one which] demonstrates what we can, and should, do for the oceans.”
Fourth Element's swimwear collection includes two costumes and four bikinis in a range of six sizes (8, 10, 12, 14 and 16) for ladies, whilst men have the choice of swimming trunks or shorts in fives sizes (small, medium, large, extra large and XXL).
One of the concepts of the OceanPositive swimwear range is that it should look good whilst being practical. Pretty much every diver wears swimwear under their wet suit, therefore fastenings have been considered to ensure that the swimwear not only look stylish, but is comfortable to wear beneath a wetsuit.
