The pattern of this sun suit by Waterlust shows the vibrant blues of New Zealand’s Pāua, the Māori (indigenous language of New Zealand) name given to three species of abalone. Abalone is the common name for a variety of sea snails found throughout the world’s oceans.

The unique colours and psychedelic patterns found on the inner shells of abalone, deemed as the “mother of pearls,” have been sought after for years, as well as their meat. This has lead to a rapid decline in their populations, with some species now critically endangered.

Up until the 1980s, it was thought that abalone populations could effectively rebound from harvesting activities… Sadly, we now know that is not true.

Thankfully Waterlust will donate 10% of profits from the sales of this abalone restoration sun suit to Get Inspired, a non-profit organization dedicated to abalone restoration and education efforts in California.
