ABOUT COEGA Sunwear

FROM A HUMBLE POOL SHOE, TO SWIMWEAR FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Established in 2004, COEGA Sunwear was launched with the introduction of COEGA Pool Shoes, when our founder Maureen Hall noticed a need for fashionable, sun-protective garments for the entire family in & around Dubai. Loving to sew, Maureen took it upon herself to create swimwear for herself & her young children.

COEGA started with distribution to a single retail outlet in Dubai. What began with a unique pool shoe design has grown into a range of protective sunwear for the whole family. Today, COEGA Sunwear apparel & accessories are available in over 75 leading & reputable retailers, plus 13 e-commerce platforms across the Middle-East.

Our swimwear provides UV-protection & style, while also serving a fast-growing fashion niche by also offering greater coverage items for those customers who choose to wear a more modest form of swimwear.

HOME-GROWN
COEGA Sunwear is home-grown in the UAE. All design, manufacturing & distribution is based in Jebel Ali, Dubai. Manufacturing in Dubai allows for short lead times and flexible logistics, owing to our strategic geographic location between; Middle East, Asia, Africa & Europe.

QUALITY & SUN-PROTECTION
All our swimwear is made from high quality fabrics, specially-imported from Europe. Fabrics are certified as UV 50+ by the Australian government and can withstand the chlorine, salt and sun. In addition to this, COEGA Sunwear has a fine-tuned, in-house quality control process, with a highly experienced team monitoring all production aspects & ensuring required quality standards are maintained.

SUSTAINABILITY & ENVIRONMENT
COEGA Sunwear believes in making swimwear with durability & longevity, thus promoting sustainable fashion (details on how COEGA achieves this, HERE). We source majority of our fabrics from Europe. Specifically, Italy & Spain. We are reducing our carbon footprint by performing the bulk of our fabric printing in Dubai, reducing the need for air transport.

We are a paperless company wherever possible, recycle anything we can, donate old stock to local charities rather than a landfill and our local manufacturing cuts down on transport & fuel consumption.

Finally, a vast portion of our collection is made utilizing the ECONYL® yarn which is made by from pre and post-industrial waste including fishing nets, by regenerating into a nylon yarn. More on COEGA & sustainability, here

GIVING BACK
As the COEGA brand products promote and support healthy lifestyles, COEGA is the proud sponsor of several local sports groups and swim competitions.
One of our most successful community initiatives is the ‘Drop Your Shorts For Good’ campaign. This charitable endeavor aims to distribute gently used or new swim wear to local low-income workers across Dubai. With the support of Helping Hands, a local charity organization, thousands of swimwear garments have been collected and distributed since the campaign’s launch in 2011.

We successfully completed our PINK-TOBER campaign in October 2019 in partnership with Al Jalila Foundation and Brest Friends to support Breast Cancer Research & Awareness, We promised to donate 25% of our online webshop sales towards the cause. The campaign went very well and we look forward to participating in other such initiatives targeted at Giving back to the Community for a good cause.
