As a small independent brand, we try our best to be mindful of our carbon footprint and minimize the negative impact that textiles can have to our planet. In a world of fast fashion, we take pride in our slower process that strives to deliver a responsibly made product. Most swimwear is reversible, allowing styles to be worn more than one way and that can work well with any other piece in that color way within the collection. We are proud that we have aligned ourselves with local artisans that share our brands passion and pursuit for quality and sustainability.
MATERIALS WE USE
Each piece is handmade from fabric woven in Italy using sustainable materials that are OEK-TEK Certified. Most swimwear is made using ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon derived from pre and post consumer waste, that once they’ve reached the end of their useful life, are recovered and regenerated. This high performance, compact and non-see through material ensures a perfect fit, following the body’s every move. It also allowed us to create a “two sizing” model, thanks to its super elastic technology, which helps in reducing over-production and over purchasing of sizes.
MADE IN NEW YORK CITY
Our swimwear is made in New York by a small family-owned and operated facility that practice ethical and fair work environments. Manufacturing in NY supports our local community and allows us to oversee the entire production process.
As we continue to grow, we are committed to doing everything we possibly can to make the best decisions not only for our business, but for our customers and planet.
