Meet the woman behind the suit: Petra!

Petra Knapp is one of the most open-hearted people you will ever meet. The Hood River local is a connector; integrating her love of food and nourishing people with building relationships and introducing people to one another. 

She's also an adventurer--kiter, skier and lover of all things outdoors as well as fashionista, embracing her femininity and constantly experimenting with fashion.

The Petra top is our fresh take on a triangle top, embracing all things Petra--simplicity, femininity and adventure while keeping with our core tenants of sustainability, movement and women's empowerment. 

This top is reversible, adjustable and minimal, giving you the option to wear it in the surf or while tanning.
