FRENCH TERRY COTTON
For Resort 2021, we introduced our 9oz. 100% French Terry Cotton – a continuation of our commitment to sourcing and working with only premium fabrics. Though most have become familiar with Terry Cloth through its uses in robes, towels and similar bathroom textiles, French Terry differs in that it is knitted and does not feature the recognizable protruding loops; it is softer to the touch and allows for some natural stretch. Its versatility and suppleness have made it the predominant fabric for loungewear, and a great companion for cooler months. To enhance this already cozy fabric, we have finished every piece with a unique sueding process that raises the cotton fibres to maximize its softness. We guarantee that these trouble-free, machine washable pieces will become staples for years to come.
NYLON FOR OUR SOLID SWIM TRUNKS
Our classic Swim Trunk is as timeless as it gets! Since the days of recreational swim, nylon has been the steadfast fabric for beach bums and sun seekers alike. Known as the first synthetic fibre, it first gained notoriety as a utilitarian fabric utilized in the war effort. Some of its features include quick-drying and moisture wicking properties, soft-to-the-touch feel and durability that surpasses similar synthetic fabrics. This dynamic fabric has not only made a name for itself in the swimwear category, but has catapulted itself into being a fundamental fabric that was widely used in apparel once it had become available to the public. This can additionally be attributed to nylon’s susceptibility to receive dye, which has allowed for a magnitude of beautiful colours. This has allowed us to take an artisanal approach to colour creation, bringing you a hand selected assortment of invigorating colours each season.
POLYESTER FOR OUR PATTERNED SWIM TRUNK
Our blockbuster product, known for our homemade patterns and designs, would not be nearly as successful if it was not for polyester. Much like its synthetic compatriot nylon, polyester offers all of the same attributes, and then some. A silky handfeel, dependable durability and lightweight nature, polyester offers a slight competitive advantage in moisture wicking. Consequently, this has enhanced the vibrancy of colours - less water absorption results in richer colours; making polyester the premium fabric of choice when grading colour fastness and the longevity of colour. Hence, we put our most intricate and eye catching designs to ensure longer lasting colours and vibrancy, guaranteeing that your favourite pairs will still look brand new for years to come.
OUR TECHNICAL SURF TRUNK FABRIC
Considered a seminal fabric here at Bather, our Technical Surf Trunk is continuing to pave the way for future fabric development and research. Cultivated through a proprietary process that involves the collection and processing of ocean plastics, this recycled polyester fabric is a true advocate for our oceans. This regenerative fabric is one piece of the puzzle in our efforts to fight ocean pollution, and implement solutions for this wicked problem. Although it is known that every piece of plastic that has ever been made still exists today, this plastic is simply stopping by to say hello to an old friend. Our finishing touches include four-way stretch, a polyester drawstring with brass branded tips, a back pocket and a distinguishable 3M reflective label.
COTTON AND VISCOSE BLEND FOR CAMP SHIRTS
With roots tracing back to traditional Aloha shirts crafted in Hawaii at the turn of the twentieth century from Japanese kimono fabrics, the fascinating Camp Shirt still remains the staple of summer style. The descendants of these shirts, commonly referred to as the bowling shirt, cabin shirt or simply an open-collar shirt, all sport a relaxed silhouette with a straight hem, and the defining spread collar. Much like its predecessor, these shirts are crafted out of lightweight fabrics, commonly cotton, linen, natural plant fibres and a variety of blends of everything in between. These breathable fabrics aid in enhancing the voluminous shape, making it the perfect warm weather sanctuary. Much like the original fabrics, the decoration of prints and patterns is something we continue on in tradition. Our patterns and designs are the final touches to perfect this characteristically lively shirt. Wear yours to beaches, barbecues and banquets alike!
