From the Sea...to the Sea

Innovation and production can easily blend with eco-sustainability and respect for the environment. Nowadays it is possible to create new products avoiding the use of new resources. The project process we were dreaming of starts exactly from waste to create our products.

Repairing, re-using, giving a new purpose and recycling resources are the key points to increase a circular life cycle for plastic products and many more materials.

 

 

Wat If cannot erase completely the damage thathas been caused to our Earth and Sea in the last decades.

Our ambition is to contribute to an ever increasingly urgent U-turn concerning some of our habits.

Wat If wants to give a second life to plastic, fishing nets and garbage found in the sea.

Recycling is only one of the several strategies we must adopt to invert this tendency.

We decided to start producing swimsuits to deliver our message as clearly as possible and also because we find it kind of romatic that something picked up from the sea can go back to it somehow.

Made in Italy

All the swimsuit models are designed by Federica and Michela. Every Wat If item is produced in Italy and handmade to give them an authentic Italian artisan quality. Moreover, this allows to significantly reduce CO2 emissions that would be caused by moving the production system to foreign countries.

All our business partners are chosen according to the way they work, what role sustainability plays in their manufacturing and whether they are willing to innovate production processes.

ECONYL

Composition: 78% recycled PA - 22% EA

It is a regenerated nylon thread created from what no one uses anymore. Fishing nets and textile production waste, which would be destined for disposal, are recovered and turned into a new thread with the same features as nylon. It has exactly the same characteristics as a thread obtained from a virgin source, but it can be regenerated, recreated and reshaped over and over again.

ECOPOWER

Composition: 80% recycled PA - 20% EA

A recycled polyamide fabric made of Q-Nova®️ yarns. They’re fibres obtained reusing production waste regenerated through a mechanical process that doesn’t require the use of any chemical materials, limits CO2 emissions and water waste.
