As a fashion label, we understand the negative impacts the textile industry has on our planet, and its contribution to the issues of climate change. In addition to this, as a resort wear label, we pride ourselves in appreciating and taking care of the planet, especially the Earth's water.
We are an ethical luxury brand that sources fabrics from heritage mills in France and Italy. These mills use age old techniques, machinery and ancestral craftsmanship to develop and create the textiles we buy and use for our garments. We use mainly jacquard fabrics from France and a traditional Eurojersey fabric from Italy. Swim jacquards are produced with less nylon/plastic in them than what traditional swim base fabrics typically require, and therefore contain and produce less plastic. All of our mesh is hand embroidered by our heritage mills in France and all materials are of the utmost highest quality, so as to promote conscious purchasing of products that will last you 50 years, versus fast fashion.
Our development and manufacturing facilities are based in Los Angeles where we work directly with our sewers, & cutters and diligently oversee the entire process. We adhere to fair wages, excellent working conditions, and couture craftsmanship that requires time and attention to detail, minimizing waste. We move slowly and believe in the slower pace of creating a quality product. We recycle, and re-use as many discarded materials as we possibly can to help lower our carbon footprint. We believe in quality over quantity and promote investment purchases, versus quick fixes, which lowers the amount of manufacturing and frequency, reducing the negative impacts of over-production.
