Folpetto (Venetian for little Octopus) was created with memories of long Italian summers as inspiration. The style of these gorgeous products speak for themselves but there is a fabulous eco friendly story that goes with this stylish swimwear brand!
Folpetto is fiercely passionate about using eco-friendly materials. Plastic production has increased twentyfold since 1964 and it is sadly expected to double again in the next 20 years and almost quadrouple by 2050! Despite the growing demand, just 5% of plastics are recycled effectively, while 40% end up in a landfill and a third in the fragile ecosystems, such as the world's oceans. Folpetto supports a sustainable living approach to regenerate waste e into high performing fabrics for this swimwear collection and strive to use a sustainable techno-fabric made from ECONYL® * for over 80% of their collection.
*ECONYL® IS 100% regenerared polamide fiber from post consumer materials like abandoned fishnets and other plastic waster collected from the sea.
We love knowing our little ones are protected from the sun in gorgeous swimwear made from recycled materials.
