A sun protection alternative

Fabric made from fishing nets

Made in Europe

Anti-waste packaging


Canopea created in 2016 by Constance Hartig is an eco-conscious brand that offers UV-resistant swimwear for children.

The brand found out that 10 % of ocean plastic pollution come from fishing nets, at CANOPEA, they chose to use a regenerated super-resistant nylon fiber, called Econyl®, which is made from rescued fishing nets and other post-consumer nylon waste.

These European made swimsuits offer UPF 50+ protection (this is a rating given to clothing to indicate how effectively the fabric blocks ultraviolet radiation) to be effective, a garment should hold the UPF50+ rating in order to filter 98% of harmful UV rays.

The sun protection comes from the tight weaving of the fiber itself, making it an extra eco-friendly choice.
