Calypso St. Barth has long been the go to brand for quietly cool, timeless pieces for women who don’t have to try too hard. Comfortable, yet flattering, it’s often the first piece reached for in closets everywhere. Now, with a little extra zip, we are back.
It is important that the Calypso brand is special in its development process and fabrication. It is vital that each garment captures a special feeling. There is a difference between machine and hand embroidered style. That human craft is what we aim to capture at Calypso. Utilizing hand beading, hand embroidery, hand appliqué, and block printing, even with hand crocheted buttons - we truly lean into the craftsmanship that can be felt within each garment.
At Calypso, we use sustainable fabrics whenever possible. Our swim line is made with Econyl which is a regenerated nylon from ocean plastic. We also utilize dead stock fabrics to minimize waste and CO2 emissions. We use organic fibers whenever possible and we can actually trace our yarns back to the farm where the materials were sourced. We honor a "less is more" policy in our packaging - Craft Mailers, canvas printed hang tags, and reusable fabric bags instead of plastics. Our commitment to sustainability is a never ending work in progress.
