Designer Ashley Martin and Team Seeks Funding via Indiegogo for the Launch of 'Makara Kids'.

Finally, there is sun protective swimwear for kids that is as fashionable as it is practical. Protecting children from the sun is smart, lets spread the word together.


Toronto, ON -- (SBWire) -- 02/26/2014 --The Makara Kids swimwear collection is made exclusively from Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) 50+ protective nylon spandex. All swimwear designs provide maximum coverage from wrist to ankle and include an innovative hood, offering complete sun coverage. At Makara, the creators understand that protecting children is a top priority and that’s why they are so proud of their first collection as it offers parents the option to fashionably protect their children from the harmful environmental effects present in our modern world. 

The swimwear collection uses two top quality fabrics, a High Performance Nylon-Spandex Tricot and a Poly – Spandex Tricot, which is great for sublimation and heat transfer printing.  Both fabrics are UPF 50 + and are free of harsh chemical treatments. It is especially important to protect children and babies as they are not born with a developed skin protection system. Overexposure to the sun can begin in childhood and last a lifetime. All Makara Kids swimwear is UPF 50+, blocking up to 98 % of UV rays.

Ashley Martin and her team needs to raise $8,500.00 as their suppliers and manufacturers have minimum orders in place and they need to pre-sell enough bathing suits to fulfill these minimums to bring their collection to production.

This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: February 15, 2014 - April 03, 2014 (11:59pm PT).
