Imagine forests breaking onto beaches that slope into water the colour of crystal. Vintage beach chairs line up along the bay while not so far offshore, seals and porpoise roam. Now picture a house overlooking the bay and a man sitting by his window like a patient lighthouse keeper, devoted to his work. This is Sierksdorf, Germany and the man is Lutz Schwenke’s grandfather.
The quality and sustainability of TWOTHIRDS garments is made possible thanks to a system that results in zero waste. We’ll explain what it means for you, how it works, and why in this post.
Plastic doesn’t have to mean pollution. A shocking amount enters the water every year but if we recycle the material, it can help us feel part of the ocean. This is the story of how plastic became a problem, and how bottles become bikinis.
When a blue whale is underwater, its skin seems to merge with the sea it lives in. Only the rings of light dancing over its back allow us to see an animal of impossible proportions. As soon as the whale begins to turn itself towards the seafloor and flicks its tail up, the rest of its body will vanish into the blue. It will be a creature between two worlds, not quite here and not quite there until only the trace of its tail is left behind it like an echo. Whales are works of art.
In February, TWOTHIRDS travelled to Morocco. The name is packed with potential, meaning “where the sun sets” in the native Arabic, and to surfers, signposting some of the world’s best lineups. Even so, Morocco still divides opinion. Everybody who had been there already either raved about it, or warned us to stay clear. This made us even more curious as to what we’d find.
