OceanWear – Milan Design Week 2020

Last week our researchproject 'OceanWear' was exhibited in digital form at the Milan Design Week.

With 'OceanWear' we have explored the possibilities of circular swimwear that is safe, healthy and 100% made for the ocean. To develop a fully recyclable product we experimented with recyclable yarns and jerseys already on the market in collaboration with Tam-Silk in Finland.

The researchproject aims to provide a holistic and symbolic response to the pollution of one of our most fragile ecosystems, the oceans. Especially as this is one of the current critical issues on the political agenda with regard to climate change, we feel it is our duty to raise awareness and find solutions for the marine environment through fashion. Therefore, innovation along the entire supply chain must be supported and further channelled in cooperation with politics and business.
