Davy J

Davy J

Davy J is a luxury, sustainable swimwear brand. All our suits are manufactured in Britain, designed to survive a dive and built to last. Our debut range, ‘The Waste Collection’ is developed using ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn from waste including spent and ghost fishing nets. An average of 640,000 tons of fishing nets are left in the oceans every year (1/10 of all marine litter). For every ton of waste nets collected there is enough nylon regenerated to create more than 10,000 swimsuits.
