Mona swim apparel is made with Seatex™ Fabric, a high-performance recycled textile. While it’s extremely strong and chlorine resistant, it’s also lightweight, soft, fast drying and breathable. These characteristics provide a perfect balance comfort and durability.
Where does it come from?
The nylon used in Mona Seatex™ Fabric is 100% regenerated, and is derived from post consumer waste reclaimed from the ocean and other environmental sources. This includes fishing nets recovered from the ocean, and other discarded plastics. Mona Seatex™ Fabric is highly resistant to oil and sunscreen absorption, which helps keep these harmful pollutants out of our delicate ocean ecosystems.

Seatex fabric is used in Mona bikini bottoms, bikini tops, rash guards, swim shorts, swim bottoms, long sleeve suit swimsuits, one piece swimsuits and swim leggings.
The ECONYL® regenerative process is used to create fresh yarns for Mona Seatex Fabric. Through a state of the art system, the recovered materials are cleaned, broken down and restored to their original purity. That means you can buy new products without using new resources. Best of all, once they are no longer needed they are 100% recyclable again.
Why is ECONYL® essential to MONA?
Each year, Mona repurposes thousands of pounds of fishing nets, saves thousands of barrels of crude oil and preventes many tons of CO2 emissions from entering our environment by using Econyl in our swim apparel. This approach to reducing waste, water usage, and pollution is a vital first step in driving the apparel industry towards a more sustainable future.
