Siblings Caroline and Jake Danehy launched Fair Harbor clothing in 2014. Their family brand combined a love for the beach with a commitment to protecting it from harm. Inspired by childhood summers spent in Fair Harbor, NY, and a concern for the plastic polluting its shores, they made it their mission to create incredibly comfortable,
sustainable beachwear from recycled plastic bottles.
Fair Harbor beachwear is made to enjoy life outdoors, so their products combine classic heritage style with modern performance attributes. The brand revolutionized beachwear by inventing a Breeze Knit fabric lining, solving the chafing problem of irritating mesh found in traditional swim trunks. Their ultra-soft Breeze Knit liner made from proprietary fabric offers 4-way stretch, extra support, and all-day comfort on the beach and beyond—in motion and at ease—from sunup to sundown.
All of Fair Harbor’s innovative, sustainable fabrics make a difference in keeping waterways and beaches cleaner. In fact, each pair of Fair Harbor shorts is made from an average of 11 recycled bottles. Since they started, this family-owned beachwear company has transformed more than 20 million plastic bottles into ultra-soft, thoughtfully designed beachwear. The brand has also gathered more than 35,000 five-star reviews from customers who appreciate their conscientious approach to comfort. Fair Harbor is proud to make clothing that helps you enjoy the places you love while protecting those places too.
