Acacia is a collective of Hawai'i-based women. They design swim and ready-to-wear pieces inspired by the je ne sais quoi of women who raised them and who they take inspiration from. Out of necessity to bring sophisticated swimwear to the masses, and with a deep admiration for nature, heritage and femininity, ACACIA was born. In 2010, creative director and designer, Naomi Acacia Newirth officially launched her label: A collection of wearable silhouettes designed for real women, at every stage of life.
They strive to offer swimwear and clothing that make the modern-day woman feel effortlessly chic, all the while being mindful of their impact on the world. They will continue working and partnering with women to eliminate the gender gap and support women in the workplace while implementing changes to more sustainable practices:
Recycled swim fabric: This eco-friendly fabric, made from recycled plastic bottles, has been regenerated into the softest nylon. Once products are no longer useful to consumers, they can be recycled back into regenerated nylon fabric and used once again – an exciting new system we will all look forward to being a part of.
Natural fibers: A selection of green textiles: TENCEL, made from sustainably harvested trees, organic cotton and linen, grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers which require less water waste.
Recycled packaging: Acacia uses recycled paper packaging for all online orders to reduce waste. All packaging used is compostable.
Compostable Poly-bags: Their products are packaged in compostable poly-bags that will bio-degrade in your home compost.
