What Makes It Awesome

With Summer House’s swimwear line, you can help clean up the seas! Made from Econyl, their swimsuits are fashioned from discarded fishing nets, lines and gear.

All those videos floating about the Internet have offered us a glimpse into how polluted our seas are. If you want to do your bit to help, we recommend you swing by Summer House on your next swimsuit quest. On the racks is their swimwear line that’s made using Econyl – a sea-friendly fabric that’s made with fishing nets, lines, and swim gear that’s been dumped in oceans. It is reported, that every year over 6,40,000 of fishing lines, nets and ropes flood the seas. The folks at Econyl fish these out, treat the nylon and regenerate it as a polymerised thread before converting it to fabric. With the the Summer House collection, you get three dreamy colours to choose from – blue, black and a happy yellow. And they are available in a single-piece style or as ‘mishap-free’ bikinis. Prices start at INR 3,500.

The styles are simple, two-piece sports bra style bikinis, or one-pieces ones, so pick your favourite. Available in blue-grey, yellow and black, we like that they’re nice and bright. In the bikini options, there are two kinds of tops — one a square neck, broad strap and cross back, the second a more retro style, that almost looks like a crop too. The latter comes with high waisted bottoms for that on-point 60s looks. We’re adding two to cart. You?
