Tuhkana Sustainable Swimwear

About Tuhkana 

Tuhkana offers a range of sustainable swimwear made with respect for the planet and its inhabitants. Tuhkana produces in a small, ethically-run factory in Brazil and maintains a small and transparent supply chain. In fact, they specifically chose to manufacture in Brazil because that is where they source the fabrics used for Tuhkana swimwear. By manufacturing close to where the materials are initially produced, Tuhkana is able to limit their CO2 emissions and reduce the environmental cost of its production.  

Innovative, Biodegradeable Fabrics  

Tuhkana uses Amni Soul Eco® technology to create their range of sustainable swimwear. Developed after five years of research, Amni Soul Eco® offers an innovative biodegradable polyamide yarn. This means that Tuhkana swimsuits benefit from the texture, comfort and stretch of traditional plastic-based swimsuits, however are able to biodegrade in a landfill in 3-5 years. This is a huge innovation in the materials sector, and significantly reduces the post-consumer environmental impact of Tuhkana swimwear.
