This print is adapted from field drawings of the wild thistles that grow around our cottage in New Brunswick, Canada. It’s printed on luxurious emerald fabric that has a slight sheen. It’s a very elegant choice for swimwear.
As with all of our swimwear, this one piece is fully lined.
-About our process-
This set is fully lined and made with Chito Sante fabric which is a new fabric we are very excited about. ChitoSante is an enviromentally friendly treatment that is made from a natural biomass called Chitosan. Chitosan is made from crab/and or shrimp shells!
ChitoSante is absorbable, breathable, durable and fast drying. Along with these benefits, ChitoSante has natural anti-bacterial properties, it inhibits the growth of bacteria. Also, it’s the only anti-bacterial fabric that is EPA certified.
This fabric is printed using the eco friendly technique of sublimation printing in a small print shop in British Columbia Canada.
Each swimwear piece is made to order and sewn by hand in our downtown studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The suit is fully lined and is finished with the most beautifully soft fold over elastic. Also there is light padding that is sewn into the cups. (The cups pads will not shift around when wearing.) This is the most comfortable swim suit! The straps are adjustable and are finished with polished brass findings for an elegant look.
All Thief&Bandit prints originate from the drawings of Amie Cunningham, owner and creator of Thief&Bandit.
