Daughters of Summer resort wear brand was created by Kim Deuss with the goal of offering beautifully designed and well-made clothing with environmental and social responsibility at the very core of the business.
Their solid colour swimsuits are made of 78% ECONYL® regenerated nylon and 22% elastane. ECONYL® yarn is made up from rescued materials, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. Through the regeneration and purification process, the nylon material is recycled back to its original purity which is exactly the same as virgin nylon. ECONYL® regenerated nylon has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality.
Their printed swimsuits are made of 78% recycled polyester and 22% elastane. The recycled polyester is made from pre and post-consumer materials, such as plastic bottles. The fabric is then printed using a sublimation process which is waterless, which means there is no chemical or dye run-off during printing. All the materials used in the printing process are recycled, including cardboard, inks and transfer paper.
Manufacturing is located in NYC and their distribution is located in Michigan. By manufacturing and distributing domestically this protects domestic jobs, helps support the economy, protects employees under U.S.A labour laws, and minimises the carbon footprint.
