MARA HOFFMAN

Although not created with sustainability in mind, after learning the impacts the clothing industry has on the world, Mara Hoffman decided to instigate change. Now committed to responsible manufacturing practises and using eco-conscious or sustainable materials where possible, they have addressed the issue and act as an example to other fashion labels. Eco stuff aside, they make beautiful summer clothing perfect for trips abroad, and we’re big fans of their bright, printed swimwear. www.marahoffman.com
