Sustainability and Production
Rose Lion was produced with the intention of lessening the environmental impact of our swimsuits. We are committed to eco-responsible, recycled nylon for the suits, repurposed materials for hangtags, and compostable packing bags. Ultimately the company is working toward ethical sustainability in fashionable swimwear.
The swimsuits are derived from 78% recycled polyamide and 22% elastane, made by ECONYL. This company works in partnership with healthyseas.org to use discarded fishing nets pulled from the oceans to make the regenerated yarn in our fabric. The versatile material is soft, durable, breathable and comfortable. For wear and tear, the swimsuits are more resistant to suntan creams and oils, as well as chlorine degradation than fabrics of most competitors. Additionally ECONYL nylon offers UV protection.
We wanted Rose Lion swimwear to be manufactured in the U.S. with openness and transparent ethical practices. After learning of an L.A.–based fashion development and production house specializing in independent and emerging designers, we now have an ongoing working relationship with this wonderful group of skilled artisans.
