By using sustainable raw materials and technologies that increase efficiency in water and energy consumption, Paul&Shark honours its commitment to reduce its environmental footprint.
Paul&Shark enthusiastically continues the SAVE THE SEA project, a collection made by using certified recycled polyester filaments, derived from post-consumer plastic bottles that pollute the sea.
The fabric provides thermal insulation, waterproof and windproof performance, comfort and lightweight, minimising the negative impacts on the environment.
Paul&Shark has introduced a new fabric to its collection of garments made from recycled and sustainable materials: ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon yarn created by recycling the fishing nets which are discarded in the oceans all over the world. ECONYL® yarn can be recycled indefinitely, and it is produced through a radical process of regeneration and purification, in order to maintain the properties of the virgin nylon, and ensure extremely high quality and performance of ECONYL® fabrics.
Paul&Shark chose to use ECONYL® to manufacture some iconic pieces of the SS21 collection, such as: shirts, jackets, trousers and swimsuits.
Paul&Shark collaborates with the Shark Trust, an NGO which safeguards the future of sharks through positive change. Shark conservation is a global issue, and thus requires global commitment. Paul&Shark and the Shark Trust are jointly committed to safeguarding the future of sharks through positive change.
With the SS21 collection, Paul&Shark launched its first capsule collection in partnership with the Shark Trust. The capsule features a special logo designed by the Shark Trust, which appears on the iconic Paul&Shark Typhoon jacket and on the matching swimsuit, as well as on several garments made from organic cotton, such as a blue hoodie, a white t-shirt and a red polo shirt. 10% of the sales proceeds will be donated to the Shark Trust.
Paul&Shark employes exclusively organic cotton.
Paul&Shark organic cotton yarns originate from hand picked cotton, grown using methods and products that have a low impact on the environment. Organic cotton farming uses production systems which eliminate the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers that are toxic and remain in the environment and in the cotton itself.

Paul&Shark continues its commitment to sustainability by giving a new life to recycled down, without forsaking high quality standards.

Paul&Shark uses super fine wool from the Beaufront property in Tasmania, famous for its exclusive merino sheep grazing estate, in Australia.
The sprawling farm is characterized by its extremely high levels of animal welfare for wool production. The Beaufront property identifies and incorporates practices that suit the unique environment surrounding it, promoting bio-diversity and grazing.
SECOND LIFE is a new project about garments that do not pass our quality control inspection. Every year about 3% of our total production used to get destroyed because of not passing strict quality tests.
SECOND LIFE is a project which will repair by hand one by one all defected garments and then make them available to our customers as unique pieces.
