Upcycled Coconut Boardshorts
UPCYCLING (OCEAN-FRIENDLY BOARDSHORTS)
The process of upcycling converts wastes into want. In making these garments, coconut husks were upcycled into an odor-resistant, fast-drying, Cocotex® yarn. They are then blended with Repreve® recycled polyester yarns to create the perfect performance boardshorts that you can wear and enjoy.
THEY STRETCHThe Cocotex® fabric will flex, twist and contort to meet your every move.
THEY BREATHE. The activated carbon fabric is characterized by open pores. So instead of soaking up water, these boardshorts actually siphon and repel it. You’ll notice that they dry faster than a normal boardshorts, and your legs will notice (and thank you for) the lack of rash.
THEY FIGHT ODORAdsorption is when one material sticks to the surface of another. As a result of Cocotex® adsorptive properties, odor molecules are trapped within the carbon surface. So go ahead and count a quick surf as doing some laundry — these shorts won’t stink.
AND THEY LAST. The refined coconut husk fabric is as durable as any conventional material on the market. So be sure to pick a pair you can grow old with because you’ll be wearing them for quite some time.
