With summer on the north hemisphere, it is time to take out your swimwear. In honour of International Bikini Day, today we look at some examples of sustainable and innovative bikinis, so you can have an ecological day on the beach!
Coral is an ecological bikini collection that is entirely 3D printed, designed by aRks 3d. The shape is inspired by marine corals. The bikini is made from polylactic acid (PLA), biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester, derived from renewable resources such as corn starch. The bikinis are printed using Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology.
Because of the minimum thickness of the material along with cotton inserts, wearability, adaptability and comfort are ensured. The structures of Coral are based on geometric and organic wefts. Because the bikini is 3D printed, it can easily be adapted to the wearer’s body. The bikinis are available in black and white.
