Designed in Vancouver by our very own co-founder Cami Rush, our suits are made in the beautiful city of Medellin in Colombia.
Here, we work with a small, family-run "taller", consisting of about 15 employees that produce our suits in small batches. Each of these employees work an 8 hour day and are paid proper wages.
Both of our founders speak fluent Spanish, have visited the site many times and work closely with our manufacturing partners on a consistent basis.
Sustainability is a process
We believe that sustainability in the fashion industry is an achieveable goal. We also believe it never "ends".
At Fenntessa, our mission is to continue to work towards a more sustainable option in the fashion industry. The big leap we've been able to make is creating all of our patterned materials from recycled plastic bottles. Of course, this is not where we stop.
Our swimwear is ISO Certified in an Eco-Process to make sure we have a strong framework to follow an effective environmental management system.
Since 2012, our founders, Cami and Robyn have been passionate about bringing comfortable swimwear options to every woman. This is what makes Fenntessa shine.
Partnering with small businesses, now across Canada (wow!), we've been able to feature Fenntessa swimsuits in retailers like Hills Dry Goods, Wild And Heart, and so many more!
