Reinventing the Board Shorts, a new era of super comfortable casual swimwear
At boochen we are convinced that it is possible for fashion to meet sustainability and for style to be eco-friendly. We believe that swimwear can exist that meets the needs of our active wearers without forgetting the needs of the people behind the production and the needs of the planet.
Innovation through Comfort, Color and Consciousness
Faro will be the first boochen board shorts on the market, which is extremely exciting! In the past years, we’ve gained lots of experience with our established bikini and swimsuit collections, also made of the best-recycled materials available.
We’ve researched thoroughly and gone through all options available and have decided to work with regenerated PET a fiber reclaimed partly from sea waste and partly from production waste.
If there is one thing polyester is known for, it is that it’s extremely durable. When considering the amount of wear and tear that swim and sportswear go through, this is a really important factor. Our goal is to create pieces that are designed and manufactured in a way that they can last for the maximum amount of time in your wardrobe, even after having been in the salty water, swooshed around by waves and shined on by the sun for hours on end.
Perfect for High Performance
Faros material is perfect for this because its firm structure makes it resistant to the wear and tear of sunny days in salty waters, such as the influence of the sun rays, sunscreen, salt or chlorine.
Faro has an elastic waistband that you can adjust through two strings at the front, a pocket on each side, there is a loop on the inside of the right pocket on which you can safely attach items such as your key ring, the inside lining is a light and soft net material to make sure the board shorts are kind on your skin and dry quickly, and lastly there is a little slit on the bottom of the side seam, to ensure maximum freedom of movement.
Versatile Design and Flattering Fit
Our aim was to create a design that combines the comfort and style of day to day shorts with the fit and performance of surf trunks. This is how we came up with the Faro cut.
Faro are all-round board shorts, the high-performing material combined with a comfortably wide but not too loose fit makes it a perfect item for surfing and many other water sport activities. The length of the shorts is ideal for you to move freely in the water while still being long enough to be worn as an outfit with a t-shirt when you leave the beach to grab a snack.
Thanks to the reduced design elements and the super-light materials Juist weighs only about 170g. So you almost forget you're wearing shorts at all. This is further supported by the net lining that adds almost no weight and lets water pass through easily. The lightweight and net lining both contribute to the fact that the boochen board shorts dry quickly.
