Sustainable swimwear and eco-friendly fashion
We are Vanilla Sand, a sustainable swimwear and fashion brand with a mission to reduce plastic pollution. We want to change the way people consume fashion by offering premium swimwear that is made to last. All our products are 100% eco-friendly and made from recycled materials, in fact, even our shipping materials are plastic-free. Our colorful designs and fun prints are timeless and locally made in Portugal and Brazil under fair conditions.
We offer you ethically made swimwear and summer clothing that we’d love to wear any day of the year. Because life’s a beach!
We offer a range of sustainable bikinis, swimsuits, beachwear, and accessories made for good vibes. The swimwear is made from recycled ocean plastic. We don’t use any coloring chemicals, just 100% plant-based dyes. Hint: don’t forget to check our Lemon bikini print.
We offer you colorful swim shorts made from a super soft material that is made of recycled ocean plastic and treated to dry quickly. You can wear our shorts to surf or any other activity. Having a dinner date after? No worries, our swimshorts combined with a white shirt and you are ready to go!
Who We Are
“Vanilla Sand revolutionizes beach and swimwear by focusing its mission around
nature, to reduce plastic pollution, ashore and in our oceans.”
This mission is something that Vanilla Sand founder Corinna is very passionate about and is what inspired her to start a sustainable swimwear brand. In 2018, during a two-year stay in Lisbon and after publishing her master thesis on sustainable fashion across different cultures, Corinna discovered her first family-run factory. And after countless conversations and strategizing with like-minded people, Vanilla Sand was born.
Made locally in Brazil and Portugal
Vanilla Sand is dedicated to transparency and supporting local craftsmanship. We want to provide an alternative to mass production and fast fashion, by offering timeless designs that are flattering and durable.
We source the most beautiful and sustainable fabrics possible to bring our designs to life quickly. Most brands take between 12-18 months before releasing designs, but at Vanilla Sand, a sketch can become a dress in about two or three months, thanks to our local factories. Our garments are made in beautiful simple shapes, earthy colors, and plant dyes from recycled or organic materials. Collections are purposely created in small, sustainable runs and we plan to run out of stock. Everything is cut, sewn, and dyed by loving hands, and every person involved in the production works in comfortable, safe conditions.
At Vanilla Sand, we stand for good vibes and the playful Carioca spirit. We design for everybody who would love to live in beachwear all year long, just like us!
P.S. Did you know that when you buy a Vanilla Sand bikini you save 50g of ocean-plastic? And with each purchase, we plant a tree!
