Nu Swim is a California-based label created and designed by New York native, Gina Esposito, and launched in January 2015.
All garments are designed in our studio in California, then manufactured at two small family-owned production facilities in the US - one in California and the other is based in NYC. Our California factory produces 70% of our garments and our NYC factory produces the other 30%.
Fabric + Materials are sourced in the US, Italy and Japan. Starting in 2018, 98% of our swim fabrics are sustainably produced in Italy, derived from recycled fibers and emitting 0% emissions into the atmosphere during its manufacturing process.
Our aim is to create timeless pieces that can be worn globally, in an uncomplicated manner. We don't believe in swimming seasons, and hope our customers createsome sort of adventure in finding a place to swim, no matter the time of year.
We are happy to hear from you! For all inquiries, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
