We like things that last - like swimwear and, idk, THE OCEANS.
We exist because life in a bikini is just better. Whether it's a basic staple piece or a must have on-trend cut, we're leaning in to the way these tiny lil' water outfits can make us feel - sexy, sophisticated, confident, young, daring and fun. We're creating high quality, well-made pieces that elevate your sense of being without breaking the bank.
Something else we're leaning in to? The sustainability movement. And we're not here to slap the word "sustainable" on our brand and call it a day. We're showing UP by making ALL of our suits with recycled nylon derived from pre & post consumer waste, using an ethical manufacturer for production, and shipping in eco-friendly packaging.
(Recycled) Plastic is the New Black.
Ahhhhh, Nylon. What a magical fabric. Hugs and holds you like a stage five clinger (except this one we actually like). But, its also made of plastic. And so is more than 60% of all clothing produced worldwide. Yikes. Add that to the plastic and other pre & post-consumer materials we already let go to waste in our oceans and landfills and we've got issues.
The good news is that we can take advantage of what's already been laid to waste instead of creating new. Our fabrics are derived from industrial plastics, unused fabric scraps, fishing nets, carpets, and more. Better yet, the end result is a high quality, better-than-before material that is twice as resistant to chlorine and sunscreen oils/creams than regular old Plain Jane swimwear fabric. Badass, we know.
Fair Trade & Slow Fashion
We wholeheartedly believe that sustainability extends beyond the product itself, so we've made fair trade an absolute priority. No large factories. No overworked employees. No unfair wages. This can be a challenge to find overseas, so we've carefully sourced and partnered with an ethical manufacturer in Bali, Indonesia that upholds these values through and through. They're a small factory that provides excellent working conditions and promotes work/life balance for their employees who receive above minimum wage pay, benefits for themselves and their families, and are provided opportunities for ongoing training and development.
Our collections are produced on a limited run basis to reduce our overall footprint and minimize the chance of wasted inventory. We can't always promise there will be a restock for certain items or sizes so snag your favorites before they go!
Everyone loves a good unboxing for the 'gram. But, we're a no-BS brand and we're cutting out the crap. We use HeroPackaging's100% compostable polymailers to ship your swimmies. All tags, hygiene liners, packaging inserts and shipping labels are are all recyclable. In addition, our manufacturer ships every single suit in our inventory to us in eco-friendly tapioca starch bags instead of single use plastic.
Every suit comes with a free cotton mesh or swim fabric bag that's perfect for carrying suntan lotions, tanning oils, or drying your suits in a compact but breathable space.
