We truly are a couture company. When you place an order we cut that single bathing suit, we mix the paint and pigment together, we paint it and dry it for 24 hours. We then close and sew the seams and paint again to hide the seams. It takes a lot of effort and time to create your bathing suit which is produced in our Atelier here in America. For 26 years Ema Savahl has created wearable art that stands the test of time.
