As gatekeepers to a world existing beyond our frame of mind, artists’ role in society is invaluable. They are our visionaries, our luminaries, our creators. They are shooting stars in the seemingly static sky— daring to be different and captivating our attention in the act.

Featured in: Sup the Mag "Sustainable Swimwear"

Many of us live in our swimwear year-round. We paddle great distances in our suits and find joy in discovering the one perfect style that hugs our curves without slipping. Unfortunately, there’s a blatant problem within the industry that produces these suits we love: making them isn’t eco-friendly. Most swimsuit material is petroleum-based which is bad for the environment. Swimsuits’ harsh dyes and chemical treatments are equally toxic for your skin. To fix that problem, simply do your homework as a responsible consumer and avoid these harmful products. —Shari Coble

Owners Kelley and Anna are grateful and humbled to be featured amongst some of the top swimwear brands in the world.  Remember, "quality doesn’t have to be surrendered when doing good for the environment."  Read more about Manakai Swimwear and other companies that are changing the face of the fashion industry and making environmentally friendly swimwear choices available for women worldwide.
