At Navy Ray, we're committed to making a positive impact on the environment. That's why we use 78% Econyl® regenerated nylon. This innovative fiber is made from a blend of pre and post-consumer waste, such as discarded fishing nets, fabric scraps, and carpet fluff. By using recycled materials, we're doing our part to reduce the amount of new plastic being produced and slow down the impact of the fashion industry on the environment.
All of our Econyl® yarns have been certified by Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® and have been awarded class I, the highest safety standard for products intended for babies. This certification gives our customers the confidence that they're wearing products that are not only environmentally conscious but also safe for their skin.
In addition to our commitment to sustainability, Navy Ray is also proud to incorporate hand crocheted details into our swimwear designs. Each crocheted detail is carefully crafted by skilled artisans, adding a unique and personal touch to our pieces.
We believe that the incorporation of hand crocheted details not only adds to the aesthetic appeal of our swimwear, but also helps to support traditional craftsmanship and artisanal communities. By including these intricate details, we're able to create pieces that are not only stylish and eco-friendly, but also have a story and a soul behind them.
Our swimwear with hand crocheted details is perfect for the conscious consumer who values both sustainability and traditional craftsmanship. We hope that our customers will feel as proud to wear these pieces as we are to create them.
We believe in supporting our local community and minimizing our carbon footprint. That's why all of our swimwear pieces are designed and manufactured locally in Toronto, Canada. By keeping our production process close to home, we can closely monitor every step of the manufacturing process, from design to delivery.
By working with local workers, we ensure that our products are ethically made, and we're able to maintain a high level of quality control. We're also able to reduce waste in our production process by using only the necessary materials, as we have direct control over the entire process.
By choosing locally-made products, you're not only supporting a small business, but you're also contributing to a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry. Thank you for choosing Navy Ray, and we hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoyed making them.
For the Oceans
At Navy Ray, we understand that our oceans are precious and in need of protection. That's why we don't just aim to reduce our environmental impact; we also use our voice to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our oceans.
To make a positive impact, we donate 3% of our profits to "Parley for the Oceans," an environmental organization and global collaboration network dedicated to protecting and preserving our oceans. Visit www.parley.tv to learn more about their work and how you can get involved.
By choosing Navy Ray, you're not only choosing high-quality, sustainable swimwear, but you're also supporting our commitment to protecting the oceans. Thank you for supporting our brand and for being a part of the movement towards a more sustainable future.
We use home compostable materials as an alternative to traditional poly bags. Our packaging is certified home compostable, which means it can safely biodegrade in a backyard compost within 180 days. Just put the bag in with your food and garden waste, and it will break down naturally.
We're also proud to use fully biodegradable mailing satchels that are partly made from plants. By using these sustainable materials, we're able to reduce our impact on the environment while ensuring that your bikini arrives safely and in good condition.
