A quick update on what we have been up to on our 'Apres Surf + Sail Wear' range of Athleisure clothing for Men, Women, and Children. We are working away on the final 'tweaks' to the fit and style of each garment. The range is made of two different fabrics. The first is an EU Eco-certified TENCEL® material.
It’s ‘Eco Chic’ from Wild Atlantique
TENCEL® fibers (sourced from Italy), are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen!
Our fabric has an Ecological and Environmentally friendly production. The unique closed-loop process makes these TENCEL® fibers the fibers of the future, since the solvent used is recycled by 99.5% in a closed loop process. It is made of renewable raw material wood from Eucalyptus trees and is pure cellulose without any impurities. The garments are designed in Ireland and are being Made in Portugal. All Labels, Tags, Hang-tags and accessories are also Made in Portugal of recycled materials. This is a uniquely Irish and European brand of Sustainable and Eco-friendly materials and design. All future orders will ship from our new business location: 'Grey Gate Lodge' in the West of Ireland.
Our Tencel Fabric's Awards and Certifications include:
Panda Award (WWF Austria);
European Award for the Environment;
PEFC Chain of Custody Cert.;
Oekotex standard 100
Finally, this Tencel range offers some amazing benefits:
- 95% Tencel and 5% Elastine
- Temperature Regulating Fabric
- Allergy Barrier
- Anti-bacterial treated
We will offer the following styles:
Men: Short and Long Sleeve T-Shirts, Apres Surf Pant and Short.
Women: 4 Types of Tops, Cargo Pant, and Skirt
Kids: 2 Tops, Apres Surf Pant, and Short
Wild Atlantique is also working with another fabrication sourced from Portugal. An Apres Surf + Sail set of Lounge Pant and Zip-up Hoodie for Women. Made from a 'French Terry' material of Cotton & Modal. It is highly absorbent and incredibly soft. The flattering fabric drapes beautifully and will be cozy and stylish over swimwear, the perfect way to end a day in the sun or for casual wear year round!
We are really excited to introduce all these styles in our preliminary launch this Summer 2019. Keep an eye out for more information in the near future!
