Introducing Ocean Mimic Swimwear: Building an Empowered Community Inspired to Save Our Oceans

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Ocean Mimic is a brand and charity united by one common vision — healthy, plastic-free oceans. Our love for the oceans is at the heart of everything we do.

Ocean Mimic was founded in 2018 by Emma Sparrow and Chelsea Clements who were working together for an eco-conscience dive centre, Orca Nation on Rawa Island in Malaysia. The importance of environmental education was at the forefront of their mind and they saw firsthand how diving how the power to inspire people.

In Bali, the waste issue is extensive and needs a multitude of approaches to solve the problem. We want to be part of a collaborative and creative local solution which is why we work with a variety of local partners.

We are so proud to be using recycled plastic fabric in our suits. Our suits are not only ethically made, but are as eco friendly as they can be. Our suits are made from Carvico Vita fabric, which is made up of 78% ECONYL recycled nylon yarn. 

ECONYL is made of 100% recycled plastic and ghost fishing nets. Vita results in a drastically lower carbon footprint without compromising on quality. Our swimwear is stretchy, soft and breathable with factor 50 UV protection. For each suit you buy, Ocean Mimic will pick up 10 kilos of trash!
