A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to You
We are two sisters, Áine and Sally Anne, who grew up swimming competitively in North West Donegal, Ireland. We have always had a great love of water and swimming, whether that is in a swimming pool or the sea. Áine works as a professional swim coach and is often found swimming in the Wild Atlantic.
Donegal is a stunning place, with a rugged coastline and enchanting landscape. It was named "coolest place on the planet" by the National Geographic Traveller and we want to keep it that way. As Donegal’s popularity as a tourist destination increased, it really heightened our desire to protect what we have, be eco-aware and a desire to live more sustainably. We searched the Irish market for sustainable, recycled Swimwear but could not find any Irish brands.
From our many years of swimming, we know a lot about Swimwear. We wanted something that looks and feels good and does not fade after a few swims. We identified a beautiful Italian regenerated nylon called Econyl®. It is strong, durable and flexible. It makes us feel good, while doing our bit to protect the planet we live in. We brought Econyl® to Donegal and designed Swimwear that ticks all of the boxes for us. So began Kahm Sustainable Swimwear......
We are committed to Sustainability throughout our processes. Our core values are authenticity and freedom. We practice what we preach.
We hope you love Kahm Sustainable Swimwear as much as we do.
Áine & Sally Anne
