Tuhkana: A step ahead in sustainable fashion


The apparel and textile industry is responsible for 10% of carbon emissions produced each year, making it second only to the petroleum industry. This is an ugly and grim fact that people do not typical consider when shopping for new adorable trends. The good news is that designers, like Tuhkana, are taking a stance for cleaner production.


Founded in 2015, Tuhkana Swimwear is an ethical, sustainable and handmade designer swimwear brand. Tuhkana is helping give sustainable fashion a new face. Designed by a Portuguese, Chicago-based entrepreneur, Rute Martins, Tuhkana Swimwear is inspired by the beauty and simplicity of the best beaches around the world.

Her designs are simple, edgy, yet elegant, and she is not afraid to be creative with patterns and fit. Tuhkana fuses daring designs, modern fit, and comfortable materials. The fabrics used in Tuhkana swimwear are produced with low-CO2 emissions, and are biodegradable.

The fabrics are a blend of Nylon and Spandex, supple to the touch, and provide great support and stretch.
