Made from 78% recycled plastic - think plastic bottles, coffee cups and old fish nets - HangZen Clothing takes an entirely eco-friendly approach to empowering beach babes and promoting body confidence. As an avid surfer herself, Emily has designed a swimwear collection for the eco minded and active water woman.
HangZen pioneers both the planet-friendly movement and an active lifestyle, facilitating this with strong branding and a core mission that runs through the heart of each piece, from conception through to completion.
The name HangZen was born from the term 'Hang Ten' aka. a surfing manoeuvre. The word 'Zen' encourages a peaceful, intuition-led lifestyle.
Designed, tried and fully tested in the waves of places like France, Portugal and Spain, each piece is completely surf-proof (say no to nip-slips!) as well as sexy. The HangZen collection is a carefully curated, versatile selection of tried-and-tested bikini tops, flattering bottoms and wearable one pieces.
From top to toe, the brand places great emphasis on comfort, sustainability and practicality.
Say bye to the standard wetsuit and hello to surfwear that is ethical, timeless, wearable, and fully accessible. Vibrant and durable, the collection is made from sustainable techno-fabric. More specifically, nylon yarn that has been up-cycled from ocean plastics and consumer waste.
Understanding the importance of confidence when surfing, Emily created HangZen to inspire women of all ages to feel good and surf well at the same time as reducing plastic waste.
"Our aims are to create awesome surf-proof bikinis and one pieces that empower women in the water, raise awareness about marine litter and help reduce the staggering rate at which we consume single-use plastics"
