Born and raised on the beautiful island of Tortola, British Virgin Islands, Kristin created swimwear brand Trèfle Designs in 2008.
Her passion for the youth motivated her to create a charitable arm of Trèfle, a Non-Profit Organization called 284 Foundation. The foundation awards grants to local BVI arts education programs. It also offers scholarship programs to youth between the ages of 10-18 to gain access to creative skill training programs, workshops and internships.
A percentage of proceeds from each purchase supports youth art programs in the BVI.
A SOLE-FUL COLLABORATION
Sea Star Beachwear is thrilled to announce its support of and collaboration with Ocean Sole.
Kenyan-based, Ocean-Sole artisans up-cycle over 100,000 pounds of discarded flip-flops every year - transforming the raw material into unique hand-carved sculptures.
Sea Star Beachwear has donated over 150 pairs of its classic Beachcomber Espadrilles to protect the volunteers’ feet from the mangroves, coral, debris, and hot sand while cleaning the beaches.
Additionally, 100% of proceeds from each sale supports Ocean Sole Artisans.
