Our swimwear is created in a material that is both durable and soft, something that is relatively unusual on the market as most people make a difference between fashion garments that should be detailed and soft, or functional garments that should maintain a high quality and resist chlorine well.

At Salt & Sand you get ' the best of both worlds ', a bathing suit that is both soft and comfortable, at the same time as it stays nice year after year. Despite our fine quality, it is important not to wear the garment unnecessarily, but to take care of it so that it stays nice even longer.
