We prefer sustainable & organic materials which are naturally sun protective and made in the USA. In fact, we visit our fabric suppliers frequently. All of our fabric printing and tie-dying is done in California, where eco-friendly dyes and safe & healthy working conditions are adhered to.
In order to achieve the highest levels of UPF 50+ sun protection, utilizing the lightest weight fabric, we sometimes use imported fabric, but our imported fabrics must be bluesign® approved. A bluesign® certification offers the highest level of consumer safety, by employing methods and materials in their manufacturing process which conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and our planet.
Sun50 fabrics have received the prestigious Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation.
