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.
In addition, the fabrics we use are chlorine resistant, UPF 50 plus and are categorised as OEKO-TEX certified, meaning the materials used are made in an eco conscious environment that minimises wastes, employs from the local communities and does not use harsh chemicals or toxins during the manufacturing process.
Our colour palette has been curated specifically to allow for the entire LIPÉ collection to be 'colour synced'. Meaning, individual pieces can be matched with any colour within the collection.
