Bio Beachwear

United Colors of Benetton presents Bio Beachwear, a new line of women’s swimwear made of organic yarn, using hi-tech nylon of vegetable origin.

Obtained from castor seeds, this yarn has no impact on the food chain and its processing involves a considerable saving of water and a 25 per cent reduction in C02 emissions compared to conventional polyamide. The Bio Beachwear line is just one of the latest sustainability initiatives of Benetton Group, which in 2017 joined the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), the largest alliance for sustainable production.

Characterized by clean lines, modern cuts and a ribbed effect material, the new swimwear line will be on sale starting May 22 in Undercolors stores and in selected United Colors of Benetton stores in Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal and Russia, as well as on benetton.com.
