Who made my swimsuit 

TEODORA VUKODINOVA / designer

For Teodora, the process of creating a sustainable swimsuit was more than working on a piece of fabric but a cause that elevates over creative expression. It is design, function, and impact.

Who made my multi-use bags 

ANA KREMENLIEVA / designer 

Ana took to heart the development of low-footprint packaging. Devoted to the mission, she was able to source up-cycled linen derived from a tablecloth and re-purpose it into a beautiful and functional bag.

After life

Recycle the textile

Don't throw

New textile and new life

We need to close the loop and clean the karma of every piece that we buy. So after many sunny days and happy dances in your Not A Virgin swimsuit, we remind you to submit it for recycling or use our Circulate program with Thrift+ to give it a second life. Let’s build memories together, not mountains of clothes. 

A data- and action-driven company on a mission to eliminate the footprint of fashion and preserve our environment.
