Araks is a sustainable swim and lingerie brand born out of the simple intention to make women feel beautiful beginning with the most intimate of layers. Creating environmentally conscious pieces that last season after season, founder Araks Yeramyan infuses her love of art and color thoughtfully into each one, while keeping the Araks woman in mind.
Our approach to design starts with the Araks woman; everything else follows. Araks’ dedication to sustainability comes without compromise to quality. Our swimwear collection includes ECONYL® fabric, a material that utilizes 100% recycled nylon materials that come from abandoned fishing nets and other discarded plastic waste, which would otherwise go into landfills and oceans, or sourced from certified suppliers who go beyond international standards for sustainability. We proudly produce 100% of our collection in New York, and we support local, women-owned small businesses which implement fair treatment practices. Sustainability is about taking care–looking after ourselves, our workspaces and the planet is a way of life for us.
“It's about loving the way women are naturally and the perfectness in that.”
