Is Carve Designs sustainable and ethical?
Jennifer Hinton and Thayer Sylvester, the women who founded Carve Designs, are all about enjoying the outdoors—and passionate about protecting it. 85% of Carve Designs styles are made from sustainable materials. Their eco-friendly fabrics include Coconut Balsa, a lightweight, fast-drying fabric made from coconut husks and recycled plastic bottles (really!), and FlyWeight™, another lightweight fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. They’re also experts in creating amazing, well-fitting, and sustainable styles for women with organic cotton, organic corduroy, and organic denim for shorts and bottoms, and recycled swim fabric for swimwear that gives us the best fit ever.
The Carve Designs brand also gives back to the community, with collaborations with SheJumps, a group that motivates women and girls to get outside, and the Send It Foundation, which sends young adult cancer survivors on surf trips.
