What inspires you?
– Our collections are always very personal, they are always inspired by what is going on in our lives. It could be a favourite place we love to travel to, or more serious thoughts about how we are all connected. Pretty much anything can be interpreted in to something creative, in our case we can be creative in our prints.
How do you hope to develop your sustainability offer?
– Change is definitely in the air, a lot of sustainable fabrics are developed every year, which also expands our possibilities to design in a more sustainable way.
Please tell us about this summer’s most environmentally friendly piece.
– It’s hard to choose just one! But our summer favourite is our body suit made of recycled polyester and GOTS certified fabric. It is both sustainable and of high quality. To be honest, what really makes a garment to a possible favorite is the versatility of how to use it. It’s not only for swim, surf or yoga – make a sunny day’s outfit complete by combining your Under The Same Sun piece with a pair of jeans shorts or a skirt and you are all set!
