It all began on a surf trip to San Pancho, Mexico for two friends, Jennifer Hinton and Thayer Sylvester.
As we lounged in a hammock waiting for the waves to roll back in, we lamented how hard it was to find boardshorts that could keep up with us – real women with real bodies and a real passion for adventure. And just like that, Carve Designs was born.
Carve Designs styles represent our spirit: fun-loving, hardworking, confident, and inclined to get where we want to go.
Begun as a surf apparel company selling rashguards and boardshorts in 2003, Carve Designs has grown into a complete beach lifestyle brand; offering surf, swim, balance, and lifestyle clothing. We are dedicated to providing effortless feminine clothing that actually fit real women while keeping us connected to the calm content feeling that inspires us at the beach.
The women of Carve Designs are determined to push the boundaries of outdoor apparel and prove that functional can be fashionable and well-fitting. The clothes are designed to be as inspirational and versatile as the women who wear them. We continue to stay true to the vision we created over 15 years ago, providing stylish apparel targeted to women actively engaged in the outdoor world.
We’re so glad to have you along on this ride!
