A common question we get from curious swimmers is "How do you make it (sPARKA)?"
We source our fabrics from a Canadian textile supplier that is committed to sustainability. They strive to ensure that partner mills adhere to global standards of environmental and social compliance.
It's important to research and test everything before investing a ton of resources. This includes testing our raw materials, and trying out different suppliers and contractors.
To produce a high-quality long-lasting swim parka, we work with a local manufacturing partner right here in Vancouver, BC. They have 25 years of experience in apparel manufacturing. They're professional and socially responsible. The working environment is safe. The workers are paid a living wage.
After the garments are made, we check every one of them before shipping them to our customer.
