Our suits are sustainably handmade in small batches in California, USA using eco-friendly and silky fabrics that fit your body perfectly, every time. The styles are inspired by the mountains and the desert but are born to travel. We think the Strangest thing of all is being an American-based, completely transparent company and we pride ourselves on being completely open with you with every aspect of how our suits are made.
Your Strange bikini started off as a piece of fabric in Brazil where the fabric is carefully created using a process that uses significantly less water and energy than typical manufacturing processes. After the fabric is made, any water used in the process is carefully treated to remove any oil or dye. The unused leftover pieces of fabric are then sent to non-profits, schools, and cities around Brazil.
The finished, buttery soft fabric is then sent to the Bay Area in California where each style of is carefully cut out. Some of the fabric is sent to Reno where Ali hand sews any custom items that are ordered. After the styles are cut out, some of the fabric goes to Los Angeles to be transformed into the straps of the suits and the rest of the fabric gets sent to a factory in San Francisco. There, our bikinis are hand sewn by a small group of women who have been specially trained to sew this sort of fabric!
The completed suits are then examined at our warehouse in Reno to make sure they’re in perfect condition before they’re shipped to Strangers like you.
