Pura is the Spanish word for `pure´ which is the equivalent for what the label PURA clothing stands for: Sustainable fashion for a pure conscience.
There is still a lot of unethical stuff happening in the fashion industry. Our goal and motivation is not only to create a bikini and sportswear line which is perfect in style and in fit but also to create pieces which are fairly produced and environmentally sustainable. PURA clothing only uses recycled or natural fabric that feels buttery soft on your skin. All our fabric is sourced from Italy and all of the pieces are made by hand in Switzerland and Italy. We have absolutely no air travel involved in any of our processes.
With every purchase you make, we’re donating 1 CHF to a non profit organisation that is fighting global warming!

ABOUT OUR FABRIC SUPPLIER
REASON TO SHOP 1
We only use biobased (made out renewable plant based oils and fats) or recycled fabric made out of old fishing nets, carpet fluff and other plastic waste. Most of the recycled plastic is post consumer waste or industrial waste. All of our swimwear is reversible and the fabric is super soft!
All of our clothing pieces are made out of 100% natural fabric (no plastic involved) such as Tencel and certified organic cotton.
REASON TO SHOP 2
All our pieces are made by hand in Italy and Portugal.
We make sure that everyone working for and with us has a regular income & insurance, and is compensated fairly. All our suppliers pay their employees above minimum wage, insurances and vacations days are also properly covered.
We know all of our factories and workers personally and visit them on a regular basis.
