Protective, eco-friendly children’s swimwear oozing Italian seaside chic
FOLPETTO Swim is a UK-based brand with an Italian heart and soul offering elegant yet practical, eco-conscious UPF50+ children's swimwear for boys and girls aged 1 to 8 years old.

The range includes bikinis, swimsuits, shorts and long and short-sleeved rash vests. Each item features all the style you’d expect from an Italian-designed collection as well as all the functionality you’d wish for. Choose between sophisticated monochrome tones and fun prints in lovely colours, between classic, simple shapes and playful frills. All are perfect for children yet keep a sense of sophistication, reminiscent of the playful style of the Italian seaside.

Alongside a love of design, you’ll find a focus on sustainability and respect for the environment top of mind here. Folpetto use a unique, eco-friendly fabric made from reclaimed fishnet salvaged from the sea for more than 80% of their swimwear.

Folpetto is the creation of Camilla and Dunia, two friends and mamas who dreamt of offering children the same magical experience they themselves had growing up. Being free, outdoors, all day, everyday… Being Italian mamas they wanted them to look good too – but most of all – they knew the kids needed to be sun-safe!

The collection is made from high performing, eco-friendly fabrics that are chlorine, sun-cream and oil resistant, as well as quick drying and naturally breathable. Designed with children's comfort in mind, it is lovingly made in Italy with outstanding attention to detail.

FOLPETTO Swim is passionate about using earth-friendly materials. They are proud of their sustainable production and manufacture in Italy at a small family company employing local seamstresses and pouring love into each item they make.

“I love the Penelope swimsuit with its sweet frills!”
