With summer around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about swimwear. Some of our favorite suits are made by local designer Helen Jon, who is creating eco-friendly clothing by mindfully constructing her pieces. This is the antithesis to fast fashion swimwear, which is often ill-fitting, poorly made and intended to only last a season.
Jon’s collection includes swimwear, beachwear, cover-ups and accessories like beach totes. Her sustainable pieces are created to be easily mixed and matched for more options.
All products made with yarn are by Belda Lloréns, a spanish manufacturer using sustainable spinning practices and yarns with almost no climatic footprint. The cotton and polyester yarns used in products are made from recycled materials. Products made with Tencel Modal fibers are mostly made from beech wood sourced from sustainable forests in Austria—a natural and renewable source of raw material. These fiber types are certified as biodegradable and compostable, so they can fully revert back to nature when they are finished being worn.
