New York, United States
Fair Harbor makes the world’s most comfortable and versatile sustainable beachwear and lifestyle clothing. Inspired by their childhood spent in Fire Island, NY, siblings Caroline and Jake Danehy launched their lifestyle brand in 2014. Their continued passion and persistence have evolved Fair Harbor into the fastest-growing sustainable beachwear company in the United States. The purpose-driven label began with the simple goal of reducing plastic waste in the water and at the beach. Since then, Fair Harbor has transformed more than 27 million recycled plastic water bottles into stylish beachwear. The family brand also innovated the men’s swimwear space by inventing BreezeKnit fabric, an interior liner for their shorts, to solve the chafing caused by traditional mesh. More than 35,000 five-star reviews from loyal customers attest to the comfort of Fair Harbor’s clothing.
