Horizon Athletic and Swimwear brings together fashionable apparel and a love of salty skin. Orginating from Sydney, Australia Horizon is the brainchild of professional athlete Marlena Gabriel in search of the perfect sporting garments.
Australia is surrounded by the Ocean, and population density is focused at the junctions between land and sea. We appreciate our horizon, an engagement with the environment is part of the life of every sport lover who enjoys the outdoors and we hope that we can contribute to improving the declining eco-system.
We have mindfully created Horizon to reflect this love and respect for the environment as a whole and to tackle and raise awareness of the issues facing our planet, one of which is the enormous amount of plastic waste in our Oceans.
‘Leading environmentalists see the end of most sea life happening within the next 6 – 16 years’ (Parley for the Oceans). A shocking statistic demonstrating one of the dramatic effects of pollution.
We source our fabrics according to function alongside sustainability. Our active and swim range is made with Econyl®, a recyled fibre made from abandoned fishing nets and other post consumer waste.
The Econyl® yarn is woven with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ which is up to 5 times more durable when exposed to chlorine, salt water, UV and suncreams than comparable swimwear fabrics. We believe in buying better and reducing over consumption. This is why we make strong products for the purpose of intentive sport that will last over time.
