Brand MANERA

This is the perfect accessory to help keeping your warm while changing in and out of your wetsuit.

We chose bamboo fabric for mainly two reasons:

  • First, to minimize our impact on earth, as bamboo is an incredible plant:
    • Bamboo farming needs four times less water than cotton
    • Grows without fertilizers and pesticides
    • Absorbs 30% more CO2 than a tree, create 30% more oxygen
    • Prevents deforestation: Can grow 1 meter per day
    • Prevents erosion because of its long roots
  • Second because the amazing quality and benefits the bamboo gives to a poncho:
    • Ultra soft feeling
    • Absorbs water three to four times better than a regular cotton
    • Dries twice as fast as other materials
    • Naturally bacteriostatic
    • Naturally hypo-allergenic
    • Material 70% bamboo / 30% cotton

Also, for ethical reasons we decided to avoid cotton as much as we can:

  • Cotton farming consumes 25% of all pesticides sold in the world
  • 22.000 people die each year because of pesticides used in cotton production
  • Cotton irrigation wastes 2/3 of the world drinking water resources
  • Fertilizers and pesticides represent 40% of the cotton production cost
