SWAKiKO: Surf Tees with Soul!
SWAKiKO is a surf-brand that was founded on the Island of Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean in 2019 by two good friends, Len Vonk and Marcel Peijs.
SWAKiKO Creates unique surf designs on fair and sustainable cotton > Surf Tees with Soul!
As surfers, with our own surf-brand, we think it is right to give something back to the oceans which grant us the opportunity to fully enjoy our favourite activity in life.
We realize that surfing amongst turtles, rays, dolphins, seals and sometimes whales, is a privilege that we have to protect. SWAKiKO therefore supports organizations that take initiatives to clean up our oceans, as well as organizations that invest in biodegradable alternatives to our overreliance on single-use plastics, like Clean Coast Bonaire.
*All profits of our T-shirts in our "Fantastic Plastic" line, go directly to supporting the above projects.
In addition, SWAKiKO participates in events such as the Wild Plastic Art Show, which aims to raise awareness around environmentally-threatening production and consumption patterns.
The launch of our online store, with its original T-shirts, is an immense step for us that we are extremely proud of. We have achieved our first goal, which is to provide fair-trade and sustainable T-shirts with our unique surf designs to awesome people around the world.
Looking to the future, we are focused on maintaining integrity in our own production means and further improving our company wherever possible. In order to make a truly fundamental contribution to changing the clothing industry long-term, we are taking the necessary steps to sustainably grow and achieve our goal of becoming a certified B Corporation by 2025.
We cordially invite like-minded organizations to contact us. We look forward to working together on achieving this goal!
Enjoy your T-shirt! Enjoy your session! SWAKiKO!
