Swijin is seeking progressive sustainability solutions to ensure that our innovation is just as ethical as it is cutting-edge.
Swijin was established in Switzerland, a country teeming with natural beauty. Who, if not us Swiss outdoor enthusiasts, would be more interested in preserving our playground and getting out to enjoy it?
That’s why our goal at Swijin is to create sustainable high-performance activewear. We want to help people engage in the outdoor activities we enjoy so much — without taking a toll on the planet in the process.
It’s a pretty big ambition. No other apparel company so far has been able to strike the right balance between high-performance and eco-friendliness. Why? Simply because the scientific discoveries we need to do so are still on the way.
But Swijin believes sustainability and performance really can co-exist. We want to show the world it’s possible to make activewear (with features like moisture-wicking and thermodynamics) via practices that are entirely planet-friendly.
Our mission is guided in part by several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the United Nations announced in 2015. The SDGs include 17 interconnected global objectives designed to realize a “more sustainable future for all” by 2030.
These are the three SDGs that resonate the most with us here at Swijin:
Our Conscious Business Model

When we say Swijin products are sustainable, we mean it — and we want to prove it to you, too. We are currently working toward becoming a Certified B Corporation.

Wild about our Planet
Swijin’s ultimate goal is to ensure our apparel is supremely functional, while remaining cognizant of the environmental impacts of our innovations.
We want you to look great. We want you to head outside and move freely and seamlessly, by land and by sea.
Just as importantly, we want you to rest easy, knowing our designs are created with whole-hearted dedication to protecting and cherishing the Mother nature that we love.
