Apricoss was launched in 2016 by Sofia Syu after she worked years in the New York fashion industry. All of the Apricoss suits are made from a densely knit and lightweight nylon and polyester fabric made by an Italian manufacturer that's been producing high-quality knits for more than 50 years. The fabric has UV protection, is stain resistant to oil and sunscreen, and is more chlorine resistant than your average swimsuit, making Apricoss suits last longer. With a strong drive to pursue more sustainable practices, Sofia chose a recycled nylon and polyester for the all black suit that's manufactured from waste such as carpets, clothing, and fishing nets. This Italian fabric is transformed back into virgin raw material with no loss of quality or longevity and all of her knits are made with the latest innovative yarn and knitting technologies so they are not only of the highest quality, but hold their softness and shape over years of wear.
