Iloshe creates swimwear for the globe-trotting gal! Whether you are cliff jumping in Maui, chasing waterfalls in Philippines or simply relaxing by the pool, our swimsuits are designed to keep you looking and feeling great. We believe that fashion and sustainability should always play well together, which is why we've taken the time to source the most high-end recyclable fabrics on the market. Our mission is to provide a swimwear line that loves the Earth as much as it loves us.
Iloshe (E-lo-she). What does it mean?
Iloshe is a symbol of Maldivian culture and tradition! It is a Maldivian word for the small but flexible "stick" or midrib that runs throughout an individual coconut leaflet. Given that our owner, Falak, spent her early childhood playing with these sticks in the Maldives, it brought her joy to memorialize her early years through the Iloshe brand.
No one wants a pretty swimsuit that is uncomfortable to wear! That is why we carefully craft each piece to comfortably fit your body. Our compression fit material, holds and lifts in all the right places allowing you to adventure freely.
Fast fashion is a direct contributor to the clothing and textile industry, being the second largest polluter in the World! By using a longer lasting and more durable fabric, your swimwear will be a closet staple for many years to come. In addition all of our products and packaging are made from recycled materials because we want the Earth to look its best.
Handmade in the USA
All our products are designed, cut and handmade in Louisville, KY by the owner herself. Since there is no middle man, quality nor price are compromised!
About the Owner
Iloshe was founded by designer Falak Burch. As a Maldivian native and travel enthusiast, her inspiration is drawn from her hometown as well as cultures from other countries she visits. Having lived in several developing countries, she has seen first hand the negative impact fast fashion has had on the Earth and its inhabitants. Her vision is to build a brand that promotes awareness of marine environment, plastic pollution and slow fashion through ethical and sustainable business practices.
