Begun as a surf apparel company selling rashguards and boardshorts in 2003, Carve Designs has grown into a complete beach lifestyle brand; offering surf, swim, balance, and lifestyle clothing.
At Carve Designs, they are determined to push the boundaries of outdoor apparel and prove that functional can be fashionable and well-fitting. That is why they will continue to stay true to the vision they created over 15 years ago: Providing stylish apparel targeted to women actively engaged in the outdoor world.
As a company born at the beach and endlessly inspired by the outdoors, taking care of the planet is close to Carve Designs' heart. Here’s how they do their part to protect it.
They have used organic cotton since day one, and have added lots more eco-friendly fabrics over the years. 100% of their swim collection is made with sustainable fabric sourced from recycled plastic bottles. 85% of their styles are made from sustainable materials. Fabrics used are eco-friendly - recycled, upcycled, and organic. They use 100% biodegradable, compostable, and plant-based packaging as well as recyclable and soy ink hangtags.
Carve Designs manufactures products both in the US and overseas. California-based factories make a significant portion of the high-quality swimwear, activewear, and rashguards they sell. They remain committed to U.S. manufacturing and work with domestic factories as much as they can. They also foster deep relationships with its overseas factories, and their onsite managers visit the factories regularly (as often as daily during high production times) to ensure that workers are well compensated and treated fairly.
At Carve Designs, they believe that going green doesn’t have to mean skimping on style. They know there’s always more to do. That’s why they vow to keep dreaming up new ways to honor the environment while outfitting the bold, beautiful, adventurous women who inspire the world every day.
