I LOVE_BE LOVE “We do not believe that there is any other way to do things from love, and this implies responsibility.” This is how ILOVEBELOVE was born, a swimwear brand, founded by Carmen Mª Castro with the support of Eduardo Santillana, a sustainable, ethical and ecological fashion project, designed to walk slowly in the world of fashion.
Working with the intention of constant improvement. Investigating and carrying out a responsible fashion with society and the environment, where we learn and grow every day.
ILOVEBELOVE was born in Almería, Southern Spain, where we create our designs and made in a family workshop, with which we work as a team. This means that we can have control and knowledge of the elaboration of our garments throughout the whole process. In addition to supporting the textile industry of our country. Our production is 100% local.
Designs are created in our studio, betting on timeless, classic and elegant design, giving each piece touches that make it special —we love playing with pattern making— where beauty and comfort come together, with the influence of our Mediterranean roots.
We use premium Italian fabrics, of the highest quality and excellent performance characteristics, with an ecological certificate and mainly fabrics made from ECONYL® fiber, an innovative fiber produced with nylon products, including fishing nets, which have reached the end of its useful life.
Our editions are limited, but our designs are born with the purpose of longevity and timelessness, and you have also made them ILOVEBELOVE basics that cannot be missing on our website.
We are lovers of the sea and what it offers us to be in contact with it: peace, freedom, love, the essentials. The beauty of the Mediterranean, the colors, the light, the architecture, are our inspiration.
ILOVEBELOVE was born with a clear vocation for simplicity, elegance and timelessness. We create swimsuits inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle. Simplicity with a different touch that makes you feel special and above all that you feel that your purchase contributes positively to you and the world.
