Konfidence has teamed up with Lorna Doyle Design, an eco-textile designer who rescues wetsuits and transforms the waste neoprene material into stunning bags and pieces of art.
This latest upcycling programme forms part of Konfidence’s ongoing commitment to reducing its environmental impact, by saving its waste neoprene swimwear products from going to landfill.
Laura Higgins, Konfidence’s Sales & Dispatch Coordinator who has been leading the eco-project, said: “Being based in Cornwall, we are so closely connected to the sea and see first-hand the scale of devastation caused from products that are thrown into landfill. As a business, we therefore make a conscious effort to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, and this latest re-purposing programme with Lorna takes our recycling and upcycling efforts one stage further.”
Based in Cornwall, we are Europe’s leading designer and manufacturer of dedicated safety swimwear for babies and children - and the market leader across 25 countries worldwide. Our multi-award winning Original Konfidence Swim Jacket is our flagship product and every year helps tens of thousands of children learn to swim. In fact, we are proud to say that it's the number one best-selling neoprene swimming buoyancy aid for children aged 1 to 7 years across the UK and Europe and is a firm favourite with parents and swimming teachers all over the world.
