Fabric Profiles & Properties

Seaside UPF 50+

We chose a Tencel with an Organic Cotton blend to define our Seaside UPF 50+ fabric for the smooth, soft, luxurious-to-the-touch feeling it provides. Keeping comfort, sustainability, quality and superior sun protection top of mind, this fabric drapes well, feels slightly cool to the touch and is very easy to wash, then wear again and again. We even added a special salt wash to make this fabric look and feel vintage from the moment you put it on.
