WE LOVE, WE CARE
We are determined to redefine the values of fashion through sustainable manufacturing and design, to sustain the places and life we love. Focusing on the impact we can make, we look at our whole value chain, contributing to more transparency.
WE WANT TO BE PART OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE – THIS IS WHAT WE DO
All our swimwear is made using ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon fibre manufactured from synthetic post-consumer waste materials such as abandoned fishing nets, industrial plastic and waste fabric, that otherwise would have landed in landfills or remained in the ocean. Those materials are recycled and regenerated into a new nylon yarn.
If you are a seeker of the sun or love to play in the sea our swimwear is UVP 50+. High quality and double line seamless finish ensures longevity – resistant to sun cream & oil, ultrachlorine and pilling – making sure you feel fresh all summer.

SUSTAINABLE & REUSABLE PACKAGING
We use recyclable, compostable and biodegradable materials in all of our packaging materials. Our love letters are water-based ink.
As a ‘One Tree Planted’ Partner, we are supporting reforestation with every package we send out – planting more trees than used by our products.
RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURING & PRODUCTION
We recently moved our entire production from Bali to Portugal to shorten the transport routes.
Designed in Germany, made in Portugal – both with a whole lot of love and care. Our studio works closely with our makers to ensure ethical and safe working conditions that allow for the production of high quality, sustainable and long lasting swimwear.
Accreditations include OEKO-TEX and GRS certificates that certify we are eliminating &/or reducing the toxic chemicals used in the production of our trims and fabrics. As well as the ethical & environmental working standards.
CARBON IS OFF
Focusing on a holistic sustainable approach, our shipping is climate neutral.
Combining all our ethos, we have decided to not only go carbon neutral, but even go climate positive thereby reducing more CO2 emissions from the atmosphere than used in our entire value chain.
This can only be achieved by supporting climate projects who are certified by the Gold Standard.
CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM
Here at Oceanchild Swim we are focusing on a few pieces per collection to ensure the brand maintains our values and does not overproduce.
To keep a harmonious and balanced relationship with the earth, we integrated a closed loop system to ensure our waste is kept to an absolute minimum.
