It is imperative that you follow these care instructions to help you get the most life from your Emma Kristina bathers:
- Rinse immediately after use to clean out salt, sand, pool water and perspiration.
- Hand wash in cool/warm water with mild detergent or liquid soap after every wear
- Do not wring, soak or bleach.
- Do not tumble dry - only drip dry in shade.
- Do not leave rolled up wet or store when damp.
- Do not iron or dry clean.
- Avoid contact with rough surfaces (i.e. velcro, rocks or poolside tiles and pavers) as this may cause pulling to swimwear.
- The best dyes available are used, however complete colour fastness on some fashion colours cannot be guaranteed. Be careful not to wear light coloured clothing over wet swimwear as occasionally some dyes may bleed or transfer when wet.
- We recommend that you do not wear your swimsuit in spa baths or public highly chlorinated pools, as it will most likely cause damage to your swimsuit.
- Some sunscreen lotions, tanning oils and fake tanning products may mark, stain or damage swimwear - this is not a fault of the swimsuit - please keep these off your swimsuit.
In 2019, Emma Kristina utilised a revolutionary fabric that supports the removal of marine debris from our oceans. Our sustainable swimwear is made of nylon waste such as recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets that have been recovered from our oceans and recycled. We have partnered with the Aquafil group who produce sustainable techno-fabric made with ECONYL - 100% regenerated polyamide fiber from post-consumer materials. By regenerating waste, we’re not only making it new again but we’re saving boatload of precious, finite resources and energy whilst also reducing carbon emissions.
We are just as proud about the origins of our fabric as we are of it’s superior quality. Our fabric is soft and luxurious; but strong and durable, and holds its shape to last. ECONYL, when tested in real life conditions, proved to be two times more resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than competitors' fabrics.
