SIXTYNINETY

The best cut swimwear made in an eco-friendly and sustainable way

The Brand Bio

Founders:
Aline Lima and Daniela Trece
Established:
2017
Headquarters:
London, UK
Country of Manufacture:
Brazil

The idea for SixtyNinety was born during the Burning Man Festival - a great place for new projects to take shape - and the company was founded by best friends Aline Lima and Daniela Trece.

Aline and Daniela had the desire to develop a brand in line with sustainable practices from textile to packaging. While the brand creates beachwear, their work is really done in sourcing textiles and producing using new technologies. The brand is always in tune with the latest developments, discovering yarns and ways of production that will not have a negative impact on the environment. Sixtyninety designs are 100% produced in a small factory in Brazil, ran by women. When you buy SixtyNinety apparel, you know who makes your clothes.

Sexy and sustainable come together in SixtyNinety, which has the EU Ecolabel and Amni Soul eco label. The brand has taken away all unnecessary elastic bands, and designs their pieces tailored to the female body - seamless, extra soft and sexy.
