Olga Olsson JULIETTE TRIBE - MADE TO ORDER - £185.00
Hand-painted, paint splash, one piece swimwear made by artisans in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Ruth Ferguson is the Founder and Creative Director of Olga Olsson.Fabric and trims are sourced from within Brazil close to production, reducing the carbon footprint considerably.Where possible digitial prints are used, which wastes a lot less ink and fabric than traditional roller printing.
The tags we use are recycled card, also made in Brazil, and are tied on with a ‘fita de bonfim’ ribbon, from Salvador in Bahia. We love vintage and upcycled products such as patchwork quilts made from our own scraps (much of the excess swim fabric is used to make cute little rag bath mats). We are constantly on the look out for sustainable fabrics; sourcing organic cottons, peace silks, linens and organic wools for our future collections.
