We are more than what we sell. We are what we leave behind, the mark we make, the values we hold. That is why we are always looking for the most eco-friendly processes possible to make our clothing.
OEKO-TEX®Standard 100 is a certification process that tests for harmful substances used during all stages of production (raw materials, intermediate, and end product). This includes testing for illegal substances, legally regulated substances, known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals, and other parameters for health care. It provides manufacturers with a uniform benchmark when evaluating harmful substances potentially used in the production process. Environmentally conscious manufacturers produce fabrics that are tested for safety and skin-friendly.
The process that gives our swimwear it's moisture-wicking and quick-dry aspects is done through a process called ChitoSante, which uses crab and shrimp shells to attain antibacterial, moisture wicking and quick dry properties. Learn more: Wikipedia.
Our Signature Prints use a water-based, earth-conscious method. We print in factories that are well above standard water recycling standards. In all of our factories, women and men are paid fair wages and the work areas are well lit and clean.
We believe we have a responsibility to each other and the planet, and we hope you'll join us in striving to do the best we can to keep our human agenda green, today and everyday.
