Recylced Swim Fabric
Made from recycled plastic bottles, our swim fabric reduces our reliance on petroleum and cuts back on air and water pollution. Each swimsuit keeps five plastic bottles out of the landfill—or worse, the ocean.
A better way of doing things.

Sustainability has always been part of our ethos.
We love the beach, the mountains and all of Earth’s natural playgrounds. So we asked ourselves, what if we could create clothing for active women like us that not only looks, fits and feels amazing, but that helps take care of the planet?
That’s exactly what we set out to do. We’ve used organic cotton since day one, and have added lots more eco-friendly fabrics over the years.
At Carve Designs, we believe that going green doesn’t have to mean skimping on style. Yes, we can make a bikini (or shirt, skirt or sweater) that makes you feel as good as you look.
We know there’s always more to do. That’s why we’ll keep dreaming up new ways to honor the environment while outfitting the bold, beautiful, adventurous women who inspire us every day.
