Swimsuits that take care of the Planet
Ocealah's designs are extremely fine, with beautiful colors and carefully crafted silhouettes for a modern woman. Founded by two friends from Barcelona who shared the vision of giving life to a contemporary and environmentally conscious brand. Ocealah is a brand of swimsuits whose production is carried out locally in Barcelona with recycled materials, of high quality and with social responsibility.
The swimsuits are made from the finest Italian lycra with a sophisticated shimmering effect. All parts are made from reclaimed nylon (Econyl) created from industrial waste such as fishing nets, plastic bottles, fabric scraps, etc. The recycled lycra is of the highest quality, it is super resistant, light and ultra soft, all its materials are also Oeko-Tex certified. As simple as this, suddenly by wearing your swimsuits, you have a positive impact on the environment and on the Planet.
In addition, as we told you, its collections are 100% locally produced, supporting professional manufacturers in Barcelona. Local production thus helps them to make quick decisions, to be part of the whole process and to reduce unnecessary emissions associated with transport. As a small and ethical brand, they also decided to produce only when necessary, not seasonally. In this way, they avoid overstocking and overproduction.
Brand for environmental conservation
Volett is a sustainable fashion project that has quality and responsibility as flag. Born in Bilbao, produced between Spain and Indonesia and taking advantage of the quality of Italian and Portuguese fabrics, this brand tries to eliminate borders and collaborate directly with the conservation of the environment in a globalized way. At VOLETT they believe that a social and industrial world that is more respectful of our planet is possible, urgent and necessary. What do you think?
This is the reason why they decide to use organic and recycled materials in all their products. They believe that in order to preserve the world we live in and for future generations to continue to enjoy it, we must all contribute with our small actions. At VELVET BCN we strongly agree with them and we also believe that we must take care of the environment and the Planet.
Their garments are made with regenerated nylon fabric, which makes them twice as resistant to the sun, chlorine and tanning creams and oils than other fabrics. This fabric allows the swimsuit to be more sustainable and made with materials with a positive impact on the Earth. In addition, the patterns of designs are very cool to give joy and color to the summer
