MATERIAL everything about drying time, color fastness and fit
The bikinis of Isole e Vulcani have been made of jersey cotton with elastane since 1989. You would think "gosh, won't that stay wet for long with all that cotton"? And the answer is fortunately: no :) Precisely because of the use of 7% stretch material you have a "normal" drying time, a perfect fit that does not move when wet (it does not lubber) and the color also stays beautiful longer. Note: chlorine from swimming pools can bleach and fade the color.
The jersey fabric is very soft and thinly knitted, making it feel like a second skin. The fabric has a firm elasticity thanks to the 7% elastane. Nice to know is that the fabric is opaque, even when wet. The bikinis and bathing suits are unlined and dry just as quickly as other swimwear.
DETAILS swimwear without irritating edges and seams
The swimwear from Isole e Vulcani is manufactured as standard without pinching seams, as all edges are seamlessly finished, which ensures fantastic wearing comfort. So you have NO irritating horizontal seams / edges on legs, stomach, breasts, back, etc. Only seams are used where it is really necessary; you will find a small horizontal seam at the bottom of the bottom and 2 minimal vertical seams left and right to bring the front and back of the swimwear together.
Good to know: despite the seamless finish, the fabric does not fray :)
Adjustable button straps:
Thanks to the buttons in the shoulder straps you can make the top higher and lower as desired for more or less support. With the tie straps you can adjust the top or swimsuit completely to your bust and your height.

SUSTAINABILITY about production and materials
As of 2020, Isole e Vulcani only uses organic cotton. All bikinis and bathing suits are still manufactured in Italy and are unlined. The company has chosen NOT to use plastic pantyliners for the pants. This means that we ask you to always keep underwear on when fitting and / or use your own panty liner if necessary.
ABOUT THE BRAND
The bikinis and bathing suits of Isole e vulcani (which literally translates as "islands and volcanoes") are characterized by simple, organic lines, beautiful colors, beautiful fits and natural materials.
Designer Daniela Fadda developed a line of seamless swimwear made of jersey cotton in the late 80s and was inspired by the raw nature and the colors of the Aeolian archipelago in southern Italy. The collection exudes the atmosphere of that place: volcanic rocks, geothermal energy, reptiles, obsidian, ocher and red earth, black beaches.
All Isole e vulcani bikinis and bathing suits are seamless (at the most crucial points!) So that there is no pinching on the thighs, legs and stomach. They are made of very soft organic jersey cotton with a little elastane (93% and 7%). The latter ensures a good fit and stretch, better color fastness and faster drying time.
Since 2020, the collection has been entirely made of organic cotton and everything is still handcrafted in Italy.
