SOCIAL COMMITMENT

From concept to shipping, crescent bleu™ swimwear is kind to people and the planet. Beyond our use of premium regenerated nylon, all of our production fabric scraps are donated in Bali to locally organized groups who re-make them into salable goods. Each swimsuit is protected in biodegradable plant based packaging AND arrives to you in 100% certified home-compostable mailers.

Our swimwear manufacturer ensures sustainable pay for their skilled workers, above minimum wage with double overtime, and medical insurance & prescription coverage extending to their spouse & up to three children.

Locally, we vow to support social initiatives that promote safety, security, and personal and communal well-being.

FOUNDER'S STORY

Arriving with a small carry-on of swim & yoga wear to partake in 10 days of rest and healthy recuperation on Tulum’s coast, the seed for crescent bleu was planted. On this solo trip to Tulum in 2013-- (it was literally Bikini Bootcamp), Anastasia discovered the peaceful freedom of retreat and focus on self and nature.

A designer with a passion for brand building, fashion, & sustainability, Anastasia White has extensive experience creating & managing women’s brands spanning department store, media, and online commerce. Throughout her fulfilling career in the fashion industry, Anastasia would reflect on notions of self-care & industry practices which were unsustainable for the global self. Her wanderlust brought her to many places where her fashion sensibilities were influenced by local culture and a need for swimwear that fit a variety of purposes. In these travels, she discovered her passion for swimwear design.

With a renewed, expanded sense of what it means to care for self, Anastasia began to make moves on creating a brand rooted in sustainability and mindfulness of our global, communal, and material resources. In 2019, a sourcing trip to Bali led to a dream partnership that allowed her to merge her passion for premium quality design and sustainability.
