New season, new materials. As a part of our Fall Collection, we introduced a new sourcing partnership with INVERSA, a materials company that turns invasive species into luxury leather. Through this partnership, we designed three distinct earring silhouettes that seamlessly blend our signature featherwork with innovative lionfish leather–reflecting the shared commitment of repurposing the beauty of nature.
INVERSA’s mission is to restore biodiversity and heal the planet through fashion. Their impact-driven approach is evident through the critical work they do in mitigating the invasion of non-native lionfish that are threatening ecosystems in the Caribbean basin. Their efforts help revive coral reefs by saving up to 70,000 native species for every lionfish removal.
Speaking about the partnership, Brackish co-founder Ben Ross shares, “This new relationship represents a significant step for Brackish as we continue to innovate our material assortment. Teaming up with INVERSA, a brand with values so naturally aligned with Brackish, allows us to add a new textural element with lionfish leather into our classic designs, embracing the beauty of nature in fresh, sustainable and unexpected ways.”
Kahan Chavda, INVERSA co-founder adds, “Brackish’s commitment to sustainability is what we see in the future of fashion, and it’s always a pleasure to work with first adopters to explore what regenerative products can be. Brackish and INVERSA both hold the core ethos of repurposing the beauty found only in nature, and this partnership is representative of those shared values.”
This partnership to redefine wearable art and forge innovative paths in sustainable fashion recently caught the attention of The Wall Street Journal.
