THE BRAND

FALL BAY IS UNCONVENTIONAL AND OFFBEAT.

 

YOU'RE ONLY AS UNIQUE AS YOUR FINGERPRINT SO MAKE YOUR MARK. 

CREATED BY MYSELF, CARYS GRIFFITHS, FALL BAY IS ENTIRELY BASED IN SOUTH WALES. WITH A BACKGROUND IN GARMENT CONSTRUCTION, FINE ART, COSTUME, FASHION AND PHOTOGRAPHY, I DECIDED TO COMBINE MY SKILLS WITH MY HOBBIES AFTER WANTING SOMETHING UNIQUE AND COMFORTABLE TO WEAR WHEN SURFING AND WORKING OUT. I BELIEVE THAT YOUR CLOTHING SHOULD BECOME A PART OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE PERFORMANCE OF THE GARMENT SHOULD REFLECT THAT.

I DESIGN AND MAKE EACH GARMENT IN MY STUDIO IN SOUTH WALES. ALL SEAMS ARE SEWN WITH DURABLE THREAD THAT ENSURES COMFORT AND MINIMUM CHAFFING. BY USING A ZERO WASTE PATTERN CUTTING TECHNIQUE, THIS MINIMISES FABRIC WASTE SO YOUR BIKINI MAY NOT BE EXACTLY AS IT LOOKS ON THE WEBSITE - PLEASE EXPECT SOME UNIQUE DIFFERENCES WITH THE PRINT. THIS ADDS TO THE INDIVIDUALITY OF THE GARMENT AS NO TWO PIECES WILL EVER BE COMPLETELY IDENTICAL. THE FABRIC PRINTS ARE ALSO DESIGNED BY MYSELF. CREATED FROM MY PHOTOGRAPHY, DRAWINGS AND / OR PAINTINGS, THUS MAKING THEM COMPLETELY UNIQUE TO THE MARKET! WEARING A FALL BAY GARMENT IS LIKE WEARING A PIECE OF ART. 

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO FALL BAY. I USE A RECYCLED NYLON, A FANTASTIC ECO-FRIENDLY FABRIC MADE FROM 79% RECYCLED POLYAMIDE FROM DISCARDED FISHING NETS, MAN-MADE FABRICS SUCH AS TULLE AND SINGLE USE PLASTICS. THIS FABRIC IS SOFT AGAINST THE SKIN AND VERY DURABLE. EVEN THOUGH A FANTASTIC PRODUCT, THE PRODUCTION OF NYLON FABRIC NOT ONLY SUPPORTS HARMFUL INDUSTRIES, SUCH AS COAL AND OIL, BUT ITS MANUFACTURING PROCESS ALSO ADDS TO OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS. NYLON PRODUCTION CREATES A GREENHOUSE GAS, NITROUS OXIDE, WHICH IS 300 TIMES MORE POTENT THAN CARBON DIOXIDE. IT ALSO USES UP HUGE AMOUNTS OF WATER, USED FOR COOLING THE FIBERS DURING PRODUCTION, WHICH OFTEN CONTAMINATES AND POLLUTES WATERWAYS THAT LOCAL PEOPLE AND ANIMALS DEPEND ON. USING RECYCLED FABRICS HELPS CLOSE THE LOOP ON THESE UNETHICAL AND UNSUSTAINABLE PRACTICES AND CREATES A MUCH MORE CIRCULAR PROCESS. THE PRODUCTION OF RECYCLED NYLON ALSO USES A LOT LESS WATER AND NITROUS OXIDE THAN TRADITIONAL METHODS. USING THIS FABRIC HELPS KEEP PLASTIC OUT OF OUR OCEANS AND HELPS WITH THE HUGE CLEAN UP THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. 

 

PLASTIC IS A HUGE THREAT TO OCEAN WILDLIFE AND TO US. ONE WAY TO REDUCE THE PROBLEM IS TO STOP BUYING SINGLE USE PLASTICS, AND SUPPORT RECYCLED MATERIALS. AN EVEN BIGGER PROBLEM IS MICROPLASTICS - THESE HAVE ALREADY FOUND THEIR WAY INTO THE FOOD CHAIN, FROM TINY FISH, TO PREDATORS, TO US. YOU CAN HELP THIS HUGE PROBLEM BY CUTTING DOWN ON WASHING YOUR CLOTHES AND TAKING NOTE ON HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR GARMENT ON THE CUSTOMER CARE PAGE. YOU CAN ALSO HELP BY DOING 2 MINUTE BEACH CLEANS, CUTTING DOWN ON SINGLE USE PLASTIC CONSUMPTION AND SUPPORTING SMALLER BUSINESSES LIKE FALL BAY WHO ARE TRYING TO MAKE AN IMPACT ON THE PLASTIC WASTE EPIDEMIC.

THE TIME FOR CHANGE IS NOW.

WHETHER YOU'RE TUNING INTO THE BEAT OF YOUR OWN BODY OR TO THE RHYTHM OF THE SEA, IMMERSING YOURSELF IN NATURE LETS YOU BE PRESENT AND ENJOY THE MOMENT.

EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUENESS...
