Where is all the swimwear made?
All our products are made in Venezuela in the "Creaciones Osmar's" workshop in San Juan de Colón, Táchira State. Our operational headquarters are in Kauai, Hawaii, so we design & primarily sell locally in Kauai.
Where can I try swimwear on?
We attend three local markets every week here in Kauai! You can find us at the Princeville Farmer's Market every Saturday, at the Hanalei Farmer's market every Sunday and at Makai Music & Art Festival in Princeville every Wednesday.
You can also visit us any day the Dolphin Touch Wellness Center in Kapaa, just make an appointment at (424) 384-7510.
Why is it ethically made?
We provide living wages to women working in our workshop to guarantee their well-being and their families'. Minimum wage and living wages are very different, minimum wages in developing countries don't cover the bare minimum a worker needs to live.
We want our swimwear to be made by healthy happy hands so we pay the cost!
Why is all swimwear made in Venezuela?
We believe that work dignifies and transforms people and we want to be able to provide jobs in difficult environments to prevent migration and the separation of families.
Why are they sustainable or eco-friendly?
All our swimwear is made from recycled polyester fabric, repurposing the life of used PET bottles. Our fabrics have a composition of 81% recycled polyester 19% Lycra and have STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX® certification.
PET bottles are collected and classified according to color and composition. Then they are shredded into plastic flakes, and melted into pellets. These pellets are extruded into yarn and are knitted, cut and sewed into beautiful sustainable swimwear. Recycled polyester -CAN- be recycled which means that we could potentially become a closed-loop system where recycled polyester could forever be reused and recycled!
