Discarded plastic bottles and old fishnets are more than trash to designer Katherine Terrell. Through her imagination, they become recycled swimsuits. Jeux De Vagues is a sustainable line of swimwear, created by Terrell, to address the alarming amount of plastic pollution in our oceans. The sassy swimsuits are made from ECONYL, a sustainable alternative to Nylon.
The short film Of the Sea is a beautiful insight into what inspired the brand. It also dives deep into Terrell’s incredible life as an entrepreneur, Vietnam-war refugee, and loving mother. Ultimately, Terrell hopes that these eco-garments can empower women to speak up about climate change—while looking incredibly fierce in the water.
