We created this brand with the core thought of solving issues around representation & support. During the ideation process it was clear that we wanted to ensure this brand was sustainable and incorporates conscious practices into the way the collections are designed and manufactured.


With 8 million tons of waste ending up in our seas every single year,

640 thousand tons of fishing nets abandoned at the bottom of the ocean (data sourced from FAO and UNEP), we wanted to help clear the oceans whilst making beautiful swimwear. 


At Swana the Label, we are incredibly honoured to utilise the technology developed at Carvica through their Vita fabrics.  


What is Vita?

Vita by Carvico: our sustainable techno-fabric, made of a ECONYL® regenerated Nylon turns waste problems into fashion. Vita is versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, elegant, stretch, soft and breathable: a unique mix of muscular compression and comfort. Thanks to its innovative construction, it is twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan creams and oils than competitors’ fabrics.

You will find Vita by Carvico used for all swimwear pieces at Swana the Label!
