Who are we?

We are hopeless optimists. We believe that high quality and environmental responsibility go hand in hand and that style is timeless. Our garments are made by hand in workshops that respect safe work conditions.

The name

CANOPEA refers to the upper level of the tropical forest. This ecosystem, rich in biodiversity, captures the majority of solar energy, allowing for younger plants to grow safely protected by elder trees. This is the energy that we aim to transmit to our children, while making sure they remain safe.

Eco-friendly

Made in Europe in small workshops, our swimwear is made from Econyl®, a recycled fiber. Tested over 200 hours in laboratory, our rash guards are chlorine, seawater and sun cream resistant. Made from high-quality European fabrics, they are rated UPF 50+ without any chemical filter, offering the best protection according to the Australian norm, the international reference for sun protection, while being kind to the skin and the environment.

Our style

Working with subtle yet saturated colors, we are inspired by a different era, when simple lines dominated and style triumphed. Our exclusive designs embrace a mix of clean-cut vintage with a twist of fun and colors, such as the ribbon hidden inside the placket of our rash tops or large colorful bows on a neck. Everything is made to combine comfort and beauty, while reducing the lines to the bare minimum.

Behind the brand

Created in 2016 by Constance, a French mom of three living in Paris. After graduating from Parsons School of Design and following ten years in communication, Constance started CANOPEA after struggling to find beautiful, simple, quality sun protective swimwear for her children. The brand met instant success online and now ships to over 30 different countries worldwide and can be found in boutiques across Asia, America and Europe.

  • CHANGING OUR HABITS ✍🏻
With this gift of time we’ve been given, we’re naturally turning toward in-home tasks. At Canopea, the environment is always at the heart of all we do, so we’ve put together a little guide to eco-friendly living. While you start spring cleaning and reorganizing here are some tips to remember.
.
P.S.  Don’t forget to include your kids
.
💙In the bedroom: Say no to fast fashion ! Instead let’s focus on quality and investing in local brands with a commitment to the environment.
💙In the living room: Favor long- lasting appliances. Research and invest on brand that last longer and while comparing their ecological characteristics.
💙The kitchen: Buy in bulk and cook more for minimal waste !
