Our promise

To shake up the status quo of the polluting fashion industry.

Where to start? We take sustainability as our starting point. We are continuously thinking of ways to reduce our impact on our land and oceans.

1. Zero-waste

“Waste is only waste when you waste it” 


Our swimwear is made of 100% recycled fabrics called REPREVE™ and Econyl. REPREVE™ fiber is made from recycled nylon & plastic bottles, and Econyl is made of nylon waste and fishing nets that were taken out of the ocean, and recycled into a yarn. The process embeds properties like moisture wicking, compression, adaptive warming and cooling and water repellency.


Our packaging is creatively recycled and reusable. For shipment, we use packaging made from old or broken kites that you can continue to use as a bag after your purchase. Do you have an old kite you want to get rid of? Let us know!

Zero-waste management

Together with our supplier we aim to produce as efficiently as possible. Of any waste material left, we make scrunchies to match your bikini.

Limited stock

We are not a fast fashion company. Our aim is to grow organically and to create fashionable bikinis with endless style. We therefore work with limited quantities and bring out a maximum of two collections per year.

Reuse, recycle, recreate

From the start of our journey we launched a project called Shake off your stuff. With this project we collect old or damaged kites. We will use these items to recycle them or create new thing such as packaging or accessories. 

2. Minimise our impact


As delivery to a pick-up point more environment-friendly, we offer this option for FREE for all orders inside Europe. Shipping costs to your home address depend on the country you are in. Delivery to an address in the Netherlands costs €7.50, for delivery to other countries inside the European Union, delivery costs are €15.


As returns are not environment-friendly, we encourage customers to first consult us when they are in doubt which size to order. In case you want to return something, this is at your own expense and at your own risk.

  1. Send an email to info@shakeyourwave.com including the following information:

    • Invoice of order attached

  2. Send the items back:

    • If you send everything back, use the same packaging in which your order was sent;

    • If you send a portion of the order back, you may use the same packaging or your own. Please consider the environment when doing so;
