The brand founder, Andreia Silva, launched Carsi in Portugal in 2019 as a swimwear collection. Later in the year, she took the decision to also create a ladieswear brand, offering luxury, high quality, detailed garments at affordable prices. A capsule athleisure collection was also introduced for both ladies and gentlemen offering an opportunity to wear high quality, detailed, comfortable clothing on a day-to-day basis. In conjunction with this collection, Carsi’s first boutique was opened in the heart of Nottingham city centre in February 2020, providing its customers with a unique and enjoyable shopping experience and www.carsi-collection.com was also launched in February 2020 enabling customers across the globe to buy and enjoy Carsi’s products.
Andreia is the principal designer and alongside her team, creates bespoke pieces that provide the wearer with a unique and highly detailed garment. The brand sources high-quality fabric that makes the wearer feel confident and empowered. Carsi endeavours to work with sustainable fabrics and is particularly happy to be using fabric made with Econyl to create its ladies swimwear brand. Econyl allows Carsi to put the environment at the heart of its swimwear collection by providing a process that regenerates landfill and ocean waste to produce high quality, regenerated nylon, enabling the creation of new product by recycling existing waste resources. Carsi endeavours to only work alongside responsible suppliers, both in the UK and across Europe and is proud to say that it has a transparent supply chain allowing it to consider its impact on the environment within every decision-making process.
