Innovation

Their first collection was with Colombian eco-friendly fabrics. Seeing their success, they sought the possibility of continuing to grow in the market with new fabrics that will cause better reception in their consumers. This is why they decided to get an Italian fabric of the Econyl brand, which is made of nylon and the waste found in the sea. They collect waste from the ocean, regenerate it, and make a textile that is colored by sublimation - which means they do not use water or chemicals. The color is impregnated to the fabric utilizing heat, so the whole process that is normally highly polluting to the environment is avoided. In addition, the material used not only does not pollute but absorbs pollution from the environment, thus generating greater impact.

Inspiration

The beauty of nature inspires the designs and the eternal possibilities we have to know and take advantage of. Understanding that it is everyone's responsibility to protect the planet, this brand was created to promote and raise awareness about how easy it is to contribute. For Vici Mare, conquering is taking over the planet through our actions. Thus, we realize that change is in our hands. We live in a world where there is no awareness of the environment and where women are not entirely appreciated for their work. For this reason, through the brand, they want to be an example for young women showing that a positive impact can be generated on a global scale.

Overall impact

This brand's innovation is to show consumers that they are not only buying swimwear; they are also helping the environment and animals survive. Vici Mare is also giving the opportunity to our society to help and create a community with their consumers so everyone becomes more conscious of their acts and the way they can contribute to our world.

Business benefit

This innovation has helped the business have a less negative impact on the environment and build a community with their clients interested in taking care of the world.

Social and environmental benefit

They have given the customers a way to help the environment, and also they are trying to produce with zero negative impact in one of the most polluting industries. They expect to continue to grow to compete.
