Handmade in Los Angeles

The UNDREST. brand is produced in our 8000 sq. ft atelier/warehouse located in Los Angeles, CA. UNDREST. is produced in the same manner as that of a true atelier, through a team of production sewers that are located steps away from the design room, and not thousands of miles away! It is modeled to be in the spirit of a “true” Atelier, where as in the days before mass overseas production became so prevalent, the designer thought up their creation and then had the garment patterned and sewn in the room next door. UNDREST. proudly supports, participates, and encourages “anti-child labor, sweatshop-free, made in the USA products.”

AOL's City's Best: Shop Venice: All You, All the Time

Check out this article in AOL's City's Best about our Venice Shop:

Undrest By the Sea: The French-inspired, beach boutique is where locals want to lounge thanks to a comfortable vibe and the saltwater taffy that's on hand. Maria Paz Navales, Undrest designer and owner, says the colorful collection of knitted bikinis, the Undrest Liberty print bikinis and cover-ups, and the signature heart ruffle back bikinis keep the lovely local girls coming back. Venice ladies can't help but pop in for La Botte Gardiane "Tropezinne" sandals. "We're the first to carry the brand in the U.S.," gushes Maria. She speaks candidly about the Venice scene, calling it inspiring and saying, "It makes me reminisce about living in Rio de Janeiro."

Apparel News: Waterwear 2011: Balancing Act

Check out Maria's quote in Apparel News about manufacturing domestically:

Maria Paz Navales of Los Angeles–based Undrest puts a similar premium on the expertise of domestic workers. Undrest—which makes lingerie, loungewear and swimwear—is a vertically integrated manufacturer, she said. Launching in 2007, Navales hired away sewers, sample sewers, cutters, pattern makers, production managers and quality-control workers from her contractors in 2009 to start her own factory. "For me, producing domestically and in my own factory is good business sense but also speaks to my business philosophy. We’re a socially responsible company, and going overseas may make for a wider margin, but it would mean giving these jobs away."
