Happy Duck offers swimwear and tops made of UPF 50+ lycra, certified by OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. The sun protection factor of our fabrics is achieved through a very tightly woven quality of the textile fibres, allowing for better blocking of ultraviolet radiation. In addition, almost all of our fabrics are made from recycled fibre from plastic waste collected from the oceans.
THE THREE CRITERIA OF OUR ANTI-UV CLOTHING:
THE PROTECTION INDEX
This is our priority. The term UPF stands for "Ultraviolet Protection Factor". The scale ranges from 15 to 50. Our UPF50+ certified fabrics offer excellent sun protection, blocking up to 98% of UV rays.
Our fabrics are OEKO-TEX® certified, which is becoming increasingly popular in the children's textile industry. This certification guarantees that the products are skin-friendly and environmentally friendly. We prefer UV-resistant clothing made of lycra, which has better filtration properties than other materials.
Our delicate textiles are sourced in France, Spain and Italy and then assembled by hand in a family-run factory in Northern Portugal. Our attention to detail in the fabrics is then carried through to the smallest details of each of the models in our collection to offer you products that are chic, comfortable and of exemplary quality.
