Getaway Giveaway: Noonday Collection + Rey Swimwear
We have long been big fans of Rey Swimwear and their vintage-inspired, body-celebrating suits! Our Founder Jessica Honegger caught up with Rey Swimwear Founder Jessica Rey for a quick chat about ethical sourcing, summer travel and the packing list goodies she can’t live without. Be sure to scroll down for a chance to win your summer travel essentials for free with our Getaway Giveaway contest! One winner will receive a $150 Rey Swimwear Gift Card, a $100 Noonday Collection Gift Card, and our brand new San Juan Sarong, perfect for summer travel.
Jessica Honegger: Jessica, there’s no doubt your suits are to die for. But tell us about the other thing that makes them so special – how they are sourced.
Jessica Rey: Absolutely! It’s important to us at Rey Swimwear that all our suits are made in the USA. I had always heard and read about the horrible work conditions at clothing factories in other countries, but I didn’t realize how bad it was until I saw the documentary ‘The True Cost.” Sourcing and producing in the USA helps me ensure that everything is being done ethically. After all, Rey Swimwear stands for the dignity of women – that includes the women (and men) making our fabric and our swimsuits. And we want to take it even further: we are currently looking into fair trade production in other countries to help provide women in vulnerable communities with jobs that pay a fair wage.
Honegger: That’s definitely a mission after our own heart here at Noonday! Why do you think that our two companies make such a great pair?
Rey: We all have inherent dignity, but not all of us are aware of that. Both Noonday and Rey Swimwear strive to empower women – to help them embrace their true beauty and know that they are worthy. I think that makes our two companies a perfect match!
Honegger: Since we’re teaming up to celebrate summer travel, I’m dying to know – where is your number one summer getaway?
Rey: That would have to be Italy. I lived there in my 20’s and definitely left a piece of my heart there. I love going back often to visit friends and, let’s be honest, to eat gelato!
Honegger: That sounds like a perfect summer vacay! When you travel, what are the must-haves that are always on your packing list?
Rey: I just started making round towels that are soft, lightweight, and adorable (available soon) – and I would definitely bring one of those along. I bring coconut oil with me wherever I go because…what isn’t it good for? A pair of my Sseko cross over slide sandals (so comfy and easy). And, of course, one of my Rey Swimwear swimmers – Nicole is my current fav because it’s like a romper + a swimsuit, and I want to wear it everywhere I go.
