As you all know Syiim is a company that finds unique ways to give back! A runway show isn’t complete without accessories, and I think you’ll be happy to know that through the small purchase of a few accessories for the show, Syiim swimwear is giving back!
Items such as hats, bangles, earrings and bags have to be purchased or burrowed to help create a complete look for the runway. For Syiim swimwear the decision was made, that the majority of our accessories will not only accentuate the line, but will also support a good cause. Below is a brief list of how our debut collection is giving back:
- Hats- Straw hats provide income to the local Jamaican market as they are purchased at the craft market and then decorated or hand dyed to collaborate with the collection
- Bangles- Apart from the wooden bangles that are being dyed in house, we’re also accessorizing with clay bangles that are carved with positive messages and whose proceeds provide Africans with clean drinking water.
- Bags- The handmade straw bags in the collection are either from the local Jamaican craft market or are made by refugee ladies from a little village in the western interior of Madura, a small island in Indonesia. These ladies live with no electricity, no running water, and no paved roads. Each family must carry their own water to their home. Syiim’s purchase of these bags helped to provided income to this community.
