PRODUCTION

Our production is located on the beautiful island of Bali. We wanted to give back to the island that provided us with so much and to make sure every single piece from our collection has the right amount of Bali vibes.

But it’s not just an ordinary production.

All staff are paid above up to three times the standard; they negotiate their own contracts and salaries; and all are provided with comprehensive health insurance. We also provide staff a profit sharing scheme, where 5% of profits are monthly distributed - on top of the annual bonus (double pay in last calendar month).

All external suppliers are all local family-run small businesses within 10 kilometers of the production HQ. This supports the development of the local value chain - which strengthens the local and national economy. It also builds on traditional tailoring skills for which the crafts focused history and culture of Bali is renowned.

Role Foundation

Our Bali production is one of a kind and together we donate 10 cents from every bikini produced to Bali’s ROLE Foundation.

ROLE Foundation run a zero waste facility and environmental development programs in Bali. 

Our swimwear is comprised mainly of discarded fishing nets (ghost nets) recovered from oceans all over the world.

Material

At Copenhagen Cartel we aspire to be a leader in sustainable manufacturing and production practices by only using sustainable fabrics and other sustainable materials.

Our swimwear is comprised mainly of discarded fishing nets (ghost nets) recovered from oceans all over the world. They are recycled, helping to reduce the amount of global waste and feeding it back into production cycles.

We offer a range of mix and match separates made exclusively by using a high performing fiber made from 100% recycled ocean-plastic. A sustainable fiber that is technically and environmentally superior to similar fibers, giving our swimwear some obvious performance benefits like lasting durability and shape retention. 50+ UV protection and its ability for superior resistance to degradation from sunscreens, tanning oils, and chlorine.

Slow Down

This luxurious and progressive material is defiant to the elements, extending the life of your swimwear with up to 40% (compared to traditional nylon) and contributing to promote the principles of slow-fashion.
