Abysse aims to align women with ideals of sustainable fashion.
We aim to create a garment made out of environmentally conscious materials, reducing our footprint on the planet. As a conscious creator, we celebrate the opportunity to include ideals of Mother Nature, of women, and a sustainable future together.
Sustainability is the fundamental value of Abysse's mindset. We strongly believe that ‘sustainability should not be a marketing tool, it should be a requirement’.
VIEWING THE WORLD THROUGH A CONSCIOUS LENS
Being a conscious manufacturer means to take back power, and support what we stand for, in an ever growing fast-fashion industry. Our goal is to make a difference by reducing our carbon footprint in a world affected by poorly managed value chains.
We define ourselves as a sustainable brand by embodying these aspects: by being a mother-daughter duo, women-owned, locally produced in the USA, using recycled and eco-friendly materials from the beginning to the end of our value chain.
We aim to give our consumers the choice to support a product that has the future of the environment in mind by creating versatile products that can be used many times, for many purposes across their lifespan.
We believe in using fabrics that matter.
Abysse’s swimwear and activewear are made out of 100% recycled fabrics, repurposed from discarded fishing nets. Every year, thousands of fishing nets are thrown in the ocean, and become the invisible killers of our marine life.
We are very proud to collaborate with AQUAFIL since our creation, using their yarn for our entire collection. Nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon, which makes its use amazing for the environment.
With every swimsuit we produce, we up-cycle some marine debris and other nylon waste, as well as reducing our environmental footprint thanks to an ecological production process.
All our fabrics and components are Oekotex® 100 Standard certified, which means that they are free of harmful and toxic chemicals.
Introducing our newest range of ribbed swimwear produced using REPREVE, a polyester fiber made out of 100% recycled plastic, the majority of which is derived from post-consumer plastic bottles. All plastic is recycled into performance fibers.
REPREVE was designed to be sustainable and certifiable. It is the only eco-performance fiber with U TRUST® verification to certify recycled content claims. From any point in the supply chain, using their unique FiberPrint® tracer technology, they can test the fabric to verify REPREVE is in there, and in the right amounts. No false claims. Because ‘sustainable’ means different things to different people, REPREVE has received the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification.
WETSUITS & NEOPRENE BIKINIS
Abysse wetsuits are exclusively made out of premium Yamamoto Japanese eco-neoprene, which replaces petrochemicals with limestone, reducing the environmental impact. Our neoprene has ultra low resistance, superior moldability, enhanced comfort, high heat retention, is light-weight and has longer durability.
We believe that producing locally is the key to a better, simpler and greener supply chain. It continuously ensures a high standard and quality of our products, fairness of work for our employees, a much lower carbon footprint and CO2 emissions due to shipment of fabrics, samples and products.
We are proud to state that all of our swimwear and activewear line is made in California, since day one. Our neoprene is ethically manufactured abroad in Thailand, in a factory that supports our continual development and applies socially acceptable practices in the workplace.
All of our packaging is recycled and recyclable, compostable, and designed with the Planet in mind.
Abysse is a brand with a purpose: to give back to the ocean and its inhabitants. The core of Abysse is determined by its love and respect of the environment. The fight for the conservation and preservation of the ocean is our main drive.
We are very proud to be supporting ‘Moorea Coral Gardeners’, an incredible charity started by two brothers in our native French Polynesia. Their goal and main aim is to regenerate the coral reef around the vast islands of Tahiti. They have been doing amazing work transplanting coral cuttings onto degraded areas of reef. When these coral fragments grow, they help to recreate reef habitats.
This allows other life to return and strengthens the reef against future damage. The Moorea Coral Gardeners are also are very involved in educating the local population and kids about the importance of the coral reefs in our islands, thus bringing to light the global impact of climate change on our oceans.
