About this project
We aren’t talking about rash guards or nylon hiking shorts—our goal is to provide you with apparel that reflects your personal style while helping to prevent skin damage from harmful UV rays.
Aside from wanting to protect against premature aging, 1 out of every 5 people in America will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. Founder & President, Summer Kramer, is a skin-cancer survivor who searched in vain for chic UPF clothing after her diagnosis. When she couldn’t find street wear that met her needs, she started SUMMERSKIN.
Our luxury fabrics are untreated—other companies that manufacture sun-protective clothing achieve the UPF 50+ rating with chemical additives. We do not.
Summer spent years finding the best fabrics, worked with leading testing labs, and the result is high-end, flattering fabrics (cottons, Tencel, and bamboo blends) that naturally protect your skin.
By utilizing classic silhouettes, SUMMERSKIN clothing and accessories provides sun protection that fits your modern lifestyle.
With your support we can make our dream a reality!
The SUMMERSKIN Beach Kit can be provided as the full kit or split into individual items (see Our Rewards to the right).

Risks and challenges
We are committed to keeping all production in the US, and supporting other small businesses in the process. Our challenges could potentially include production timelines, but we will remain in contact with our amazing backers and provide updates as frequently as we can. Our goal is to help lower the incidence of skin cancer, and SUMMERSKIN apparel is our contribution to this goal. We feel confident in our estimated delivery dates and want you to be in your SUMMERSKIN as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
