Sustainability and Compassion
We are proud to be an independent brand designed with love in Hawai‘i and made ethically in Bali.
We strive to be a brand that uses creativity and brings innovative ideas to the table while creating pieces that are wearable. Our signature is in elevating classic Brazilian swim staples to make the wearer feel something more. As an authentic swimwear brand, we value remaining true to creative and design processes to create thoughtful, original pieces of quality.
We are not a celebrity or influencer monetization brand, nor are we a 'pandemic business,' and we do not resell pre-made designs. When you purchase a Those Seen Dancing piece, you’re getting much more than swimwear; you’re getting hundreds of hours of experimentation, creation, and collaboration from artists and artisans from Hawai‘i, Bali, and around the globe.
We provide, and only partner with organizations that provide, fair wages and healthy working conditions for all levels of staff. We stand for safe working environments for models, creators, and industry workers, and have a zero-tolerance policy for racism, discrimination and sexual harassment/abuse.
Sustainability has been rooted in our brand from inception.
Fashion is one of society's most personal forms of self-expression, yet the industry's impact on Earth and her inhabitants is in direct opposition to our vision for a sustainable future.
We believe being environmentally and socially responsible should be a core value of all brands, in all industries. Using recycled materials is a great start, but it is time we asked ourselves not only what materials are used, but also how they are made and where the energy to make them comes from. Therefore, we are on a mission to continuously improve our materials and processes to do the least harm while still creating and doing what we love.
1 purchase = 1 tree.
We plant one tree for every item purchased. We also use minimal packaging to reduce unnecessary waste and are committed to eliminating single-use plastics from our supply chain.
Mahalo for joining us in loving each other and our planet.
