Our Italian fabric is manufactured in a green energy facility that works to reduce pollution, protect green spaces, preserve water, and monitor gas emissions. Made up of two game-changing fibers. ECONYL® is created with regenerated nylon recovered from our oceans through The Healthy Seas Project, helping to remove tons of plastic waste and save marine life. Add in LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ for a timeless bikini that's built to last.
We're giving back to our community too. Designed in Tulum and made in Mexico by local artisans, AMARA pledges to support Mexican communities by creating livable-wage jobs, minimizing negative impacts of tourism, promoting cultural exchange and helping to preserve local traditions. We also organize beach cleanups in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere to help protect wildlife from the plastic washing up ashore.
We are committed to using ethical and sustainable practices in the development and manufacturing of all our products. Our jeans are produced with sustainable fabrics and washes through an environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free process – the only impact we’ll leave on the planet is good jeans.
Regreen Our Planet!
We’ve teamed up with One Tree Planted. We’ll plant 1 tree for every purchase made! Sustainable jeans to sustainable living.
How we make it
Most of our styles are made from upcycled vintage fabrics in limited editions. I mostly source these fabrics on trips to the desert where all the good stuff hasn't already been picked through. I look mostly look for cotton prints from the 60's & 70's, but also look for stretch fabrics in the vintage lingerie section, and silk scarves with beautiful prints. There is so much joy that comes from finding a few yards of something really special! I truly believe that repurposing materials that already exist in the world is the most sustainable way to bring anything new into being.
We are lucky enough to have a local supplier and manufacturer for our eco friendly fabrics. We used Bamboo Jersey for years, but have recently switched to Lenzing Modal for our jersey pieces. The production process is more sustainable and the fabric is more durable and long lasting, while still biodegradable. Modal is a cellulose fiber made from reconstituted cellulose from beech trees that multiply by "rejuvenation" which means that the trees propagate by themselves. No artificial irrigation or planting is required, thus beechwood forests are a completely natural and sustainable source of raw material. We are aiming to start using Tencel, but are still on the hunt for the perfect blend.
We also use silk, satin, organic cotton, and remnant fabrics that are sourced locally. We plan to evolve with the fashion industry as innovations in sustainability are made.
Elastics & Hardware:
Our strap materials are mostly new and purchased from our local supplier. Occasionally we use remnant elastics from larger manufacturer orders, or deadstock vintage elastic and hardware in special colors.
Besides black and off white, all colors are hand dyed. We use the following organic dyes: Brazilian Logwood (purples, blacks) Indian Lac (pinks, reds) Caribbean Plants (teals, blues) Osage Orange (yellows.) Indian Lac is sourced from the excrement of the Cochineal insect rather than using the actual insect itself, but we can provide a synthetic alternative for vegan customers who would prefer us not to use this dye.
Reclaimed and natural textiles hand-dyed with pigments from plants.
Built around a core of richly textured organic hemp and cotton, with occasional touches of silk and cashmere, SEEKER blends earthy materials with an otherworldly minimalism. The collection is gender and age inclusive, and each garment is designed to mold to the personhood of the wearer, carrying them easily through all that life brings.
SEEKER is sourced from artisans around the world and made with care in Los Angeles.
