These sustainable high-waisted bottoms are made from Econyl, a regenerated nylon yarn made from discarded waste plastics, such as fishing nets and plastic bottles collected from our oceans. These bottoms flaunt a high waistline, a snug elastic band to keep the bottoms in place during watersports and a cheeky cut. Combine these bottoms with the matching Cross Back Tri top or for example our Taika Cropped Rashie.
Material 78% recycled polyamide (Econyl), 22% elastane
Love the look of these sustainable high-waisted bikini bottoms? We’ve gathered some useful information below:
We know that swimwear sizing can be tricky! If you need any help, do not hesitate to get in contact.
A lot of sizing is up to individual preference: you can think of whether you like your swimwear to be tight-fitting, which we recommend for water sports, or a bit on the looser side, which on the other hand is perfect for tanning and relaxing. If you prefer a snug fit, shop your usual size – if you prefer a more loose-fitting size or a bit more coverage, choose a size up. If you are in between sizes, you could probably wear both – the smaller one will be snug and the larger one more loose-fitting.
Please also note that swimwear will also always feel snug when worn dry and for the first time. The fabric will always get a tad softer after being worn a couple of times.
The fabric used in this set is Econyl, a nylon yarn regenerated from discarded waste plastics, such as fishing nets and plastic bottles collected from our oceans. These post-consumer waste plastics are given a new life in form of our activewear through a process that involves breaking down the nylon polymer into monomers, then regenerating the nylon into a new yarn. The breakdown process is done with only temperature and steam, without the use of harmful chemical agents, in a renewable energy driven process. Reusing nylon to make Econyl reduces the environmental impact of nylon by 80% compared with the material produced from crude oil. Read more about the process via the fabric manufacturer’s website.
Do not machine wash, tumble dry or iron.
Do not hang your swimwear to dry from the straps to avoid stretching.

Our new sustainable cropped rashies are the perfect tops for any water activities: these shirts protect you from the sun, board wax rash and cuts and scrapes. The fabric used in these rash guards is RPET, a fabric regenerated from recycled plastic bottles. Combine these beauties with our matching booty shorts in the same print or any of our bikini bottoms. This top can be worn without a bikini top under, but we would recommend wearing one in cases where you need more support.
Material 78% recycled polyamide (RPET), 22% elastane

This onepiece can also be worn as a bodysuit with jeans or denim shorts.
Our sustainable Kaamos High-Waisted Leggings are a part of our new activewear collection called North. This collection is inspired by the rough but resistant nature we have here in the north where Lilja the Label is from. We wanted to celebrate the gorgeous autumn hues Northern Europe offers when seasons change. Kaamos, the name we gave the black variation of these leggings, is a Finnish word for polar night. The polar night occurs in the northernmost and southernmost parts of the world, only inside the polar circles, where the night in winter lasts for more than 24 hours. This means that for example in Lapland, the sun does not rise for up to 50 days. The polar night is a time for rest, relaxation, looking inward and stopping for a while.
These leggings are made from recycled plastic waste collected from our oceans (Econyl) - and then recreated into these gorgeous workout leggings! These leggings offer a high waistline for maximal support and coverage, flattering v-cut and full ankle length. Our activewear items are perfect for all indoor and outdoor activities, whether your thing is running, gym, yoga or just lounging! Our supportive 4-way stretchy fabric offers support and compression where needed without sacrificing comfort.

This top is designed for Lilja the Label by Chloé Kian. The sustainable Chloé set is made from plastic waste collected from the oceans - by purchasing the set you are helping to make a difference!
Chloés inspiration behind the design:
This year I wanted to come out with a long lasting design. I checked my bikini collection and had to be really honest with myself: the suit I wore the most in the last five years was a simple black bikini that fit nicely and enhanced my body shape. I felt confident in it, and as clumsy as I am, I wasn’t scared to stain it. I never got tired of it and even repaired it when it once started falling apart. So when I had the opportunity to design a new piece with Lilja The Label this year, my goal was to create a piece that would fit beautifully on any body type and that anyone would feel comfortable and confident wearing regularly. I hope you will take this bikini on many adventures, cherish and wear it until it falls appart. I hope you will love this new design as much as I do and make it your go-to bikini not only this Summer, but also next year and so on!
