STAYING LOCAL AND SUSTAINABLE
Here at Tara Matthews we are passionate about sustainability and being kind to our environment, so we make sure that sustainably-sourced materials are used to manufacture our collection. We produce high quality, limited product runs that ensure exclusivity, while at the same time making sure that no surplus winds up in unnecessary landfills. Did you know that the equivalent of a dump truck filled with textiles gets landfilled or incinerated every single second around the world? We work with an eco-friendly factory in India to create original prints using environmentally conscious hand-dying and screen-printing techniques. Our work with small, local ateliers throughout France run by former “petit mains” insures the couture construction quality to our swimwear, but it also contributes more widely to the promotion of savoir-faire and sustains and enhances the health of local welfare through training local couturiers. We create timeless designs that flatter and enhance womens’ bodies while using high-end durable fabrics. we don’t follow trends (although we may well set them) – and this ensures that you don’t have to necessarily buy a new swimsuit each season.
