about karma

Karma was founded by sisters Julienne and Antje Worring in 2014. Since day one, we've lived by the message “what goes around comes back around,” and continue to dedicate 7% of sales to ocean conservation efforts.

Our female-owned and operated manufacturing give women jobs in countries where less than 1 in 5 women are employed.

Karma has been showcased at Miami Swim Week, FLL Fashion Week, British Vogue, Daily Mail, Planet Fashion TV, Pacific Sun, SF Chronicle, Miami Herald.

"At Karma, we seek to build an ethical, sustainable supply chain for ourselves and the fashion industry. Our 'karma' is a commitment to cutting-edge design which serves women and improves their quality of life globally."

– Antje Worring, CEO of Karma

we use materials that are non-harmful to the environment

This is our “karma” back to the world. Our mission is to make the most eco-friendly products possible. We source the most eco-friendly fabrics, use dyes made with plant based materials, and use 100% recycled packaging.

For every 10,000 tons of material we use we save: 


Barrels of Crude Oil


Tons of Co2 Emissions Saved


Global Warming Impact Deduction

our fabrics

Our swimsuits are made of sustainable techno-fabric, made of a ECONYL® regenerated Nylon. It is twice as resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than competitors’ fabrics. This amazing swimwear fabric is made from 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff, tulle etc.: all such materials, once they have reached the end of their useful life... and yet it is one of the most supple, comfortable, and long lasting fabrics we have found this year.

Ahimsa silk or "peace silk" is a method of nonviolent silk breeding and harvesting. Unlike traditional silk, wild silk moths are bred, rather than the domestic variety. It allows the completion of the metamorphosis of the silkworm to its moth stage, whereas most silk harvesting requires the silkworms to be killed in their cocoon stage. Ahimsa silk robes, pjs, and more coming soon. 

Bamboo is one of the most environmentally-friendly fabrics on the market. The plant is a sustainable tropical rainforest product that is abundant, fast-growing, sturdy, and can grow on rainwater alone without the need for pesticides or herbicides to grow. The plant also has positive effects on the soil, air, and environment around it. Soft-ultra soft clothing coming soon.

how our sustainable fabrics work

step 1: Source waste products that would otherwise pollute our oceans like: fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpets, and recycled plastics like water bottles. 

step 2: Becoming a virgin again. Once a radical regenerative and purification process is initiated the nylon waste turns back its original purity.

step 3: Yarn. The regenerated nylon is then transformed into a yarn and made into fabric for carpets, clothing, and interiors. 

step 4: Karma creates beautiful and flattering pieces out of the fabric, that are both high-quality and sustainable. 

ocean conservation

Since 2014 we have donated 7% of profits back to ocean conservation efforts through partnerships with organizations like Shark Stewards, which give back to the oceans. With the money from sales, from customers like you we have been able to make a difference in the world, our “Karma.” 

Our efforts have helped with projects to eliminate illegal fish bombing, restoring coral, saving turtle reefs, and education about marine endangerment globally, in countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.


where do you manufacture? 

We work directly with women-run and owned manufacturers based in Asia. Why not the USA? We have worked with manufacturers in 7 different countries including the United States. What we have found is that manufacturing at home is less sustainable. Raw materials are still processed in Asia and factories in the US are not equipped with machines for activewear and swim. Since our sustainable fabrics are made in Asia, it’s currently more sustainable to manufacture our products near where the fabrics are being made rather than mail all materials back and forth. We implement a strict policy for ethical and fair labor. Our factory is SA8000 certified. 

how are fabrics made? 

The yarn is made from raw PET chips made during the purification process. Our knitting process is unique and does not compromise on anything. The process is time consuming and each machine can only produce about 100 set worthy fabrics within a 24 hour period. Aka slow fashion. 

how does recycled elastic become a high-quality breathable fabric? 

The majority of activewear and swimwear products purchased online are already created with plastic. Thanks to the ease of plastic recycling, we have chosen fabrics that can be made from waste found in the ocean like fishnet and plastic bottles. That is why our goal is to popularize sustainable fabrics and their use, starting with all of our products, which help eliminate waste in our oceans. 

what’s a SA8000 certification?

SA 8000 is an international certification standard that encourages organizations to develop, maintain and apply socially acceptable practices in the workplace. Partnering with SGS to achieve SA 8000 certification leads to better performing processes, increasing skilful talent, consistent and compliant supply chains and more sustainable customer relationships, delivering economic vitality to both partners.

other benefits? 

As well as being made from recycled fabric our suits are ultra chlorine resistant, resistant to sun cream, offer factor 50 UV protection, are soft and have 4 way stretch.
