Ensign Blue Recycled Chito Hi Count Swim and Athletic fabric from KenDor Textiles is antibacterial and moisture wicking. It is made of recycled bottles and for every yard of fabric created, 10 bottles are diverted from the waste stream.
This incredible fabric provides UPF 50 protection and at 8.9 oz/yard is the perfect weight and stretch percentage to provide both comfort and support for swim and athletic wear.
KenDor Textiles consistently produces high quality fabrics while consciously protecting both the mill workers and the environment. This fabric is both Oeko-Tek 100 certified and made with recycled polyester from plastic bottles. You can feel good about adding this fabric to your handmade wardrobe or even just your stash until you find just the right use for it (or get up the nerve if swimsuits still feel as scary to you as they feel to me).
