Slow. Salty. Sustainable.
We stand for fashion that doesn’t harm people and planet. We believe that nature is the ultimate luxury. We live our lives a little slower.
We deeply love are respect ocean and nature. We are committed to the better fashion practices that regenerate instead of polluting. We value people and we only engage in ethical manufacturing to ensure that we contribute to people empowerment in the fashion industry.
In every decision that we make we stay as raw as we can. When we ever get a little sad or stuck, we simply go for a salty dip. *splash*
We take life with a pinch of salt. We live our lives a little slower and we run our business just the same. As a slow fashion brand, we introduce smaller collections and limited pieces, design season-less and timeless pieces that don't become yesterday's news fast. We ensure the utmost quality of our garments so you can have them in your wardrobe for many seasons to come.
We've met our manufacturing partners to ensure their ethical practices. We use plastic free packaging and low-impact OEKO-TEX® dyes. Our materials are vegan without any animal products. We are climate positive and we support incredible projects that can be tracked here.

We create the space in the fashion industry that is fair, kind and considerate to people and planet. We harness our creative power without harming nature in the process. We continuously improve and implement better business practices. Our energy and our inspiration comes from living and playing in nature by the ocean.

Our luxurious linen is woven in Osaka, Japan and traditionally softened with the process of tapping (instead of using harsh chemicals). You can feel the superb quality and softness that sets it apart from other linen. It will be the most delicious linen you've touched with a wealth of heritage and tradition woven into its fibres.
We've taken meticulous care sourcing our linen from Japan. We work closely with our supplier and are very proud of the supreme quality and full transparency of the process they offer.
