fabrics

every good suit starts with amazing fabric. we're constantly sourcing the most sustainable fabrics that don't compromise a luxurious feel. all of our swimsuits are made with a regenerated nylon created from ocean waste like fishing nets. using this fabrics allows us to extend the life cycle of these materials while cleaning up the ocean. unlike your ex, our fabric is worthy of a second chance.

production & manufacturing

  • our entire creation process, from initial design to final production, takes place in new york city. by keeping manufacturing and distribution local, we are able to drastically reduce our carbon footprint. 

     it also allows us to visit the factory and ensure proper working conditions are in place. we get to know our partners on a personal level and grow together. we may be a small but mighty team of two, but there are many people working with us behind the scenes that help bring our dream to life. we want to bring as much joy to them as they do with us when we see our designs become reality.
