Ethos

Abysse aims to align women with ideals of sustainable fashion.
Sustainability is the fundamental value of Abysse’s mindset. We aim to create a garment made out of  environmentally conscious materials, reducing our footprint on our Planet. Our dream is to empower women to reach their highest potential in and out of the water.
As a conscious creator, we celebrate the opportunity to include ideals of Mother Nature, of women, and a sustainable future together. 

Sustainability

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’.
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  women owned family business, locally produced in the USA, using recycled 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.
 

Materials

Abysse’s bikinis and activewear are made out of 100% recycled fabric, repurposed from discarded fishing nets. Every year, thousands of fishing nets are discarded in the ocean, and become the invisible killers of our marine life. We are very proud to be certified by ECONYL® 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.
Abysse wetsuits are exclusively made from premium YAMAMOTO Japanese Limestone Neoprene. Limestone based neoprene is greener and has superior qualities than petroleum based neoprene. Our neoprene has ultra low resistance, superior mold ability and enhanced comfort, high heat retention, lightweight and high durability.

Charities

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 to 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 my 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.
