Vaute Couture launched a new range of summer apparel and swimwear designs that are made from eco-friendly materials like organic cotton and recycled carpet fibers.

A two-piece swimsuit like the Karolina Wrap style is made from a blend of Elastane and Nylon that's been crafted from recycled carpet fibers. To celebrate the launch of its newest products, the body-positive company is encouraging women of all shapes and sizes to share photos of themselves on social media wearing the latest styles.

Vaute Couture's Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart describes that the new swimwear and clothing pieces perfectly fit the brand's formula by providing "function plus ethics plus fashion." In addition to being extremely conscious with its material choices, as a vegan apparel company Vaute Couture makes a point to note cruelty-free makeup and hairstyles were used in each of its product photos.
