Sun Trooper has designed its 2019 eco-friendly UPF50+ certified sun-protection swimwear for kids with fun, stylish fabrics, in keeping with the principles of slow fashion.

Sun Trooper’s mix and match pieces in fashionable colours use soft fabrics made from ECONYL® 100% regenerated nylon, from waste such as fishing nets from the oceans and aquaculture, fabric scraps from mills and old carpets destined for landfills. This yarn, together with the addition of Xtra Life Lycra® is woven in Italy into Sun Trooper’s UPF50+ swimwear fabric. Due to the technical weave it produces a super soft fabric with natural density that is UPF50+ certified by the manufacturer, without the need for any chemical additives and is ultra-chlorine and sun-cream resistant. Sun Trooper’s prints are printed in Spain using digital printing, which is water and power saving, and gives beautiful vibrant colours.

Sun Trooper sources locally, considering the entire impact of all their supply and delivery chain from sourcing all the way through to delivery, using ethical businesses, and manufacturing is local.
