Solpardus - Sun Leopard

“In 2021, through the struggle to find swimwear that wouldn’t aggravate my then inflamed psoriasis, I fruitlessly searched for natural swimwear in the UK. I needed comfort, but still wanted to look good and feel confident. I knew I didn’t want anything synthetic as any woman can attest to how tight, restrictive and uncomfortable traditional swimwear is! I knew I could do better, so I unearthed my old sewing machine, ordered some dreamily soft bamboo fabric and created the first iteration of our Solpardus “Thea Bikini”. It was a success and allowed me to comfortably sit outside, helping my psoriasis patches move into the pale leopard spots often seen when flares begin healing…and so, under the Cornish sun, ‘Sol’-‘pardus’/‘Sun-leopard’ was born!”

But, the status quo of synthetic material for swimwear is actually a relatively new idea…

    Slowing Down to Ethical Fashion

    Before starting Solpardus I had always thought I was pretty aware of the ethics surrounding clothing manufacturing and the various stages a garment would go through before it ended up in my wardrobe. But starting my own business was an amazing eye opener into just how many people work on one seemingly simple garment…
