Vitamin A:

Vitamin A believes that style and substance can coexist. Since 2000, Vitamin A is at the forefront of swimwear design with signature innovations: chic details, neutral color palettes, the Little Black Bikini™ (LBB), and the iconic California cut. Now, Vitamin A lightens its environmental footprint, one bikini at a time. Vitamin A uses EcoLuxTM, a exclusive new superfine matte jersey swim fabric produced locally in California, using Repreve® recycled nylon fiber to conserve resources and LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber to extend the life of each swimsuit far beyond that of traditional spandex products. Vitamin A also employs water less digital printing technology, incorporate sustainable fibers like Tencel into their après-beach styles, and choose factories that conserve water and energy use.

Odina is highly-functional and fashionable swimwear that is locally made from recycled and reclaimed fabrics. Odina was founded  with the idea of making a suit using Eco-friendly materials that not only complimented a woman’s figure, but also her passions. Odina worked with surfers, not models, to get feedback on fit and function.Through the process the Odina team tested a number of sustainable fabrics and a variety of recycled fibers before finding one that met their demands. The various styles underwent the same testing, with many success stories. The result was a suit that was not only ecologically sensitive but looked great on and rose to any challenge.
