About

We are a french Canadian company launching an ethical luxury swimsuit brand with a vintage look.

Finished with some of the highest quality of french lingerie techniques. Engineer for the best push-ups (giving up to 2 size increase visually) without underwire! A combination of the best materials, sewing, and design are meshed together in our products. Each swimsuit is hand crafted and ethically made - while also contributing to cleaning the ocean. 

The purpose of my project is changing the way people think about consumption, making a difference on the planet, and helping the women who will wear our brand to feel their absolute best.  It's hard to educate people and change consumer behaviors, but it's with the help of awesome supporters like you that a movement or trend like this can occur.

At Utopia swimwear we are planning to use, as much as possible in our designs, a fabric that helps in the mission to help save our oceans.  Alongside with this, our products are made of the softest italian fabrics and the highest quality sewing techniques (sourced from my background in french lingerie design), to create a truly premium product.

We are hoping that with our kickstarter we can gather enough pre-orders to start a large manufacturing process in Canada - keeping all of the labor of production in an ethically friendly environment.  Although this reduces profits somewhat, I believe it's important to respect the people involved in our project and we believe that this is a message other people will get behind as well.   This  will simultaneously encourage buyers to make decisions based on ethical  choice, as well as supporting my local community.  If there’s no  existent manufacture that satisfied our quality standers, we are prepare  to start our own little team to make it happen.   

It's small steps, but it's a small step in what I believe is the right direction.

Risks and challenges

We own 100% of all designs and the collections have been carefully perfected and ready for the production. All fabrics contract with the manufacturer worldwide are already signed and just awaiting larger orders.

Our design requires an artisanal touch to the production since every piece is finished with a hand stitch. We are evaluating the manufacture to find the very best fit for the high quality that we need for our products within an ideal environment and conditions for their workforce.

We are hoping that with our kickstarter we can gather enough pre-orders to start a large manufacturing process in Canada - keeping all of the labor of production in an ethically friendly environment. Although this reduces profits somewhat, we strongly believe in the importance of respecting all the people involved in our project and that sends a positive message to the people supporting social funding company and potential client of the brand.

If we do not find a suitable manufacturer in the first two month that satisfied our quality standers, we are entirely prepare to start our own team to make it happen.
