Behind 5B

About Our Fabric

All of 5B Swim & Sport is made with Carvico Vita and Vita Power Nylon featuring ECONYL® regenerated nylon made from our ocean’s wastes and landfills. 

The process starts by rescuing waste like scraps, industrial plastics, fishing nets from our oceans and landfills to be sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible. Through the regeneration and purification process, the nylon is recycled back to its original purity. This regenerated nylon is then made into yarn for fabric, like your swimwear and sportswear. Infinitely recyclable, without ever losing its quality.

About Our Production

Everything is handmade with love by Lauryn right here in Brooklyn, NY. We are a part of the whole process, start to finish with each product. Scraps and leftover fabric have been made into woven bags, masks and scrunchies.
