NATATIO is a high performance sports swimwear brand, fused with contemporary style. We exist to empower and inspire women to live healthy and happy lives.
Our swimsuits are first and foremost designed to perform for both pool-based and open water swimming, providing high freedom of movement, comfort, support and durability swim after swim. We don't include clasps and zips that get in the way of the real purpose; every design element in our swimwear is focused on enabling as many swimming strokes, tumble turns and dives as you can manage.
The majority of the fabric used in our first collection is made from ECONYL® - a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from fishing nets and other nylon waste. An average of 640,000 tonnes of fishing nets are dumped in our oceans every year, representing one of the greatest threats to marine life. It's a simple but important step we can take to help clean up the oceans in which we so love to swim.
We fuse our high quality, high performance sports swimwear designs with stylish, on-trend colours and prints. In the past we've had to choose sports swimsuits in plain navy or garish prints and we wanted to create a product which performed well but was also beautiful.
We use Carvico and ECONYL® fabrics, which, when tested in real life conditions prove to be two times more resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than competitors' fabrics. These amazing results are achieved thanks to innovative construction and to the presence of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™. The fabric feels nothing like our competitors; it is luxuriously silky and many of our customers have marvelled at the lack of chafing over long distance swims. Our fabric provides:
- Ultra resistance to chlorine, sun creams and oils
- 50+ UV protection
- Muscle control
- Shape retention
- Two-way stretch
- Luxurious soft feel
Natatio ('na-tay-shio') is Latin for swimming pool, used to describe the grandiose European baths of a bygone era. It seemed a fitting name for a swimwear brand focused on premium quality and style.
