LIPÉ materials

All LIPÉ swimwear is made from high quality, imported fabric that we purchase from a local South African company. The fabrics we use are engineered for swimwear and active wear purposes and therefore possess two way stretch, pulling resistance and shape retention characteristics. The material properties include nylon and elastane; giving it that needed stretch whilst maintaining support. 


OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. The MADE IN GREEN label verifies that an article has been tested for harmful substances. This is carried out through certification in accordance with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
