Discover kaio swimwear, all the women in you
kaio swim is a sustainable swimwear brand based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.
Since 2019, kaio swim’s eye-catching unique designs have drawn women’s attention with conscious consuming habits. kaio swim’s mission is to free women from stereotypes around swimwear, making their journey in the water light and joyful. Thus, the brand offers high-quality, long-lasting items that celebrate women’s bodies and make them feel their best selves.
In order to reduce production waste, their swimwear is produced in small batches, and the leftovers are turned into little bags that serve as a reusable packaging solution.
In 2020, kaio swim launched the Try-at-home box that allows you to try 3 of their swimsuits at home and make a well-thought decision so that you thoroughly enjoy wearing their swimsuits once purchased. At the same time, this concept reduces multiple e-commerce returns and exchanges and unnecessary shipping emissions.
Support and padding: women’s empowerment
Comfort is essential to kaio as their swimwear is designed for women looking for enhanced support and hold. With currently no sustainable solution to replace removable cups for enhanced breast support, kaio came up with a temporary solution of their one-piece swimsuit double lining that provides sufficient support.
Raw materials and production
kaio swim doesn’t follow seasonal trends and keeps their product range small, striving to minimize production waste. The brand uses recycled materials with respect to the environment. Their swimwear is made of ECONYL fiber, a 100% regenerated nylon from the ocean, landfills, and the nylon industry waste to be ethically transformed into a completely new high-quality fiber ready to be reused. This concept is a perfect example of a circular economy based on principles of designing out waste and pollution, leading to the reduction of plastic waste ending up in landfills or the ocean.
kaio swim’s production sites are based in Italy and run by a family-owned business that masters a wide range of techniques. The site is regularly visited and closely monitored by the brand. People involved in their supply chain and manufacturing processes are highly respected and fairly compensated. Their relationship is built on nothing else than commonly shared values such as trust and respect.
kaio swim has been a part of the Swiss Triple Impact (SIT) program since 2020, initiated by the non-profit organization B Lab Switzerland. Its mission is to assist Swiss companies in measuring the company contributions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and helping identify areas of improvement, new opportunities, and innovation.
The brand is committed to keeping working towards sustainable solutions.
