BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
Most swimsuits are made from oil, which comes from non regenerative fossil fuels. Furthermore, because of irresponsible textile dying, fast fashion is the second biggest polluter of fresh water in the world. Are you kidding us?
We love creating beautiful swimsuits, but didn't want to contribute to any of this unsustainable BS in the first place.
Thus, Londre was born.
Every item is made of post consumer fibres primarily derived from discarded plastic water bottles. We also use a certified eco friendly fibre called chitosante, which is made of crushed shells that are a by product of the shellfish industry. We are all about chitosante because of its anti bacterial and odour resistant properties. The material is a compression fabric, for the smoothest and most controlled fit. We also package using biodegradable and recycled materials.
LONDRE BODYWEAR is a new swimwear concept catering to a generation of mindful consumer who value sustainability and design equally. Since its launch in March 2017, our swimsuits has been seen on tastemakers spanning Australia, North America and Europe and featured in publications such as the Coveteur, BC Business Top 30 under 30, Vita Daily, The Daily Mail, Refinery 29, the Georgia Straight and Monte Cristo Magazine. Londrė is setting out to prove that there is nothing granola about going green.
Londrė was dreamt up on a beach while working on a photoshoot in Sayulita, Mexico, by co founders/best friends Hannah Todd and Ainsley Rose.
Looking to combine their love for sustainability, travel and minimalist design, they founded Londre as the answer to the call for the perfect one piece and two piece.
Now based in Vancouver, BC, we create and produce beautifully designed, deliciously flattering and sustainable one piece swimsuits and bikinis that lead the way in having the lowest possible impact on the planet.
All of our garments are made from recycled fabric that is primarily derived from discarded plastic water bottles and has the highest international eco certification possible.
We use double lined compression material for the most comfortable and controlled shape.
Chitosante is embedded into the textile to make it odour resistant, and quick drying. This makes it an ideal travel swimsuit.
Highly versatile - Londre swimsuits also function as bodysuits and wear equally well in the water and on land.
We believe in keeping your mind dirty and the ocean clean. And that the best life decisions happen after at least one margarita.
