In 2012, professional kiteboarder Sensi Graves launched her swimwear label, Sensi Graves Bikinis, to meet the demands of her sport. After losing one too many string bikinis in the surf, she decided to tackle the job herself and design suits that actually stay on in rough conditions.
Designing swimwear that’s both fiercely functional and fabulously feminine is the core mission of the brand; sustainability has been built into the brand since its inception with Sensi using all recycled packaging, hang tags and labeling, compostable poly bags and hygienic liners, manufacturing in the US and donating 1% of sales to environmental groups.
Sensi is taking another step towards increased sustainability in her brand. On September 30th, Sensi Graves Bikinis is launching a crowdfunding campaign to fund the transition to all recycled fabrics in their 2020 line. Backers on this campaign will allow Sensi Bikinis to double down on their commitment to being a 100% transparent (Ed note, we don’t think she means clear bikinis), ethical, and sustainable brand.
“Sustainability is at the core of everything we do here at Sensi Graves Bikinis. We love the outdoors and do our best to protect it. But manufacturing is harsh on our planet. Therefore, we’ve committed to producing our products in the most environmental manner possible; to ensure that not only are we doing more good than harm but that we are also inspiring others to take action.”—Sensi Graves
