Anemos is a Los Angeles-based clothing and swimwear brand founded in 2018 by California natives Lauren Arapage and Joshua Shaub. A former press officer for Stella McCartney and buying director for Moda Operandi respectively, the pair draw inspiration from the laid-back ease of their shared home state, as well as the directional sensibility of New York City, where their fashion careers first began. With a reverence for minimalism and a focus on sustainability, Anemos keeps its consumer at the center of its designs, and its impact on the planet at the core of its production.
SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL SOURCING
All of our fabrics are sustainable, and our suppliers are OKEO Step (Sustainable Textile Production) certified which ensures the implementation of environmentally friendly production processes and safe and socially acceptable working conditions in production facilities along the textile chain. They each use a sustainable process and monitor every single stage of the production cycle in order to reduce the use of water, energy, chemicals, and waste.
We work with local, family-run factories in LA to produce both swimwear and ready-to-wear. Manufacturing locally permits us to be involved firsthand in every step of our supply chain - we are able to monitor their working conditions and form close relationships with all who are involved.
ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING & STATIONERY
For our printed marketing and branding materials, we are working with an officially certified LA Green Business that prints recyclable foil on card stock made from sugar cane, which is biodegradable and saves trees.
We want to bring environmental awareness to our customers as well - the swimwear is shipped to you in 100% compostable packaging and includes a mesh reusable wash bag instead of plastic (we use as little plastic as possible) so that our customers can use the bags to wash their swimsuits properly so that they last longer. You can even put your phone, wallet, sunglasses, and beauty products in the mesh bag and throw it in your beach tote.
