Founders Kiran Jade and Will Ryan are the names behind the sustainable swimwear line, Wolven. The brand caught the attention of many when many celebrities began to embrace the brand’s mission of making “sustainability sexy.” Implementing their love for coastal adventures and beachwear, the two creatives put together hippie haute couture designs that are now signature to every piece from bikinis to joggers. Wolven thrived this past summer selling swimsuits made from recycled fabric and partnering with organizations to help them keep track and offset their carbon emissions. Jade and Ryan implement the idea of “wild and bold” into their designs, making each piece unique, fun, and memorable.
