Folpetto swimwear is lovingly made in Italy with outstanding attention to detail.
All garments are manufactured at a small family company where the owners work alongside the 14 locally employed seamstress to make each swimsuit by hand with a lot of passion, heart and skill.


Folpetto is proud to support a sustainable living and creative ideas to regenerate waste into high performing materials by using a sustainable techno yarn for our swimsuits.

Our eco-friendly fabric is made with a 100% recycled polyamide and polyester fiber from post consumer materials like discarded carpets, abandoned fishnets and other plastic waste collected from the sea.

By using recycled polyamide and polyester, we aim to reduce the use of new fibres from non renewable origins and contribute to preserve Earth natural resources.

The yarn used in our swimwear’s fabric can be regenerated for an infinite number of times without any loss in quality, promoting a circular economy.

Our swimwear are designed and made with outstanding quality and care with the intention of having a longer lifespan than the average fast fashion garments, therefore reducing the need for excess production. This means less carbon dioxide, less waste, reduced energy and water consumption.

At Folpetto we strive everyday to be as green as we possibly can and we are committed to using renewable raw materials in all our packaging, from 100% recycled paper swingtags to PET bags made from sugar cane.

Our aim is to limit our impact on the environment, without compromising on quality and comfort for your little rays of sunshine.
