The Swell Vision


Swell Vision sprang from the entrepreneurial spirit of Pawleys Island native Mitchell Saum. Back in 2013, during his high school years, Mitchell's deep reverence for nature spurred him to establish Swell Vision—a brand committed to sustainability. Drawing inspiration from nature's timeless allure, Swell Vision crafted products with classic designs. Mitchell's decision to use bamboo as a primary material was driven by its eco-friendly properties, aimed at reducing carbon footprints and offering sustainable alternatives.


From the outset, his aim has been to pioneer change. Swell Vision emerged from a fervent desire to create chic eyewear while lessening the fashion industry's ecological impact. Fueled by a passion for both fashion and sustainability, our founder identified a pressing need for eco-friendly eyewear alternatives. This vision materialized into bamboo sunglasses that not only radiate elegance but also advocate for meaningful global contributions.


Today, more than a decade later, we're renowned for our eco-conscious lifestyle brand, continuing our journey that blends sustainability, innovation, and style. With our roots firmly planted in a mission to enact positive environmental change, our trajectory embodies our steadfast commitment to ecological preservation and social responsibility.


As our brand has evolved, so too has our range of eco-friendly offerings. Our expanded collections now includes stylish bamboo watches and jewelry, cozy bamboo boxer shorts, and timeless hemp and organic cotton shirts, providing our customers with fashionable yet sustainable options.


Our journey is rooted in a steadfast commitment to using sustainable materials and innovative manufacturing processes. We prioritize the use of recycled plastics, bamboo, and responsibly sourced wood materials, reducing reliance on virgin resources and minimizing waste. We actively promote the circular economy and advocate for environmental conservation. By collaborating with environmental nonprofit organizations, we support initiatives such as beach cleanups, reforestation projects, and community development programs. Through these efforts, we reaffirm our dedication to promoting positive change and building a better future for all.


As our story unfolds, we continue to cultivate a community of individuals who share our passion for sustainability and fashion. United by shared values, customers, supporters, and advocates converge to embrace our ethos and amplify our impact. Through various engagement channels like social media, events, and partnerships, we nurture a community of change-makers dedicated to achieving a more sustainable and equitable world.


Leading the way towards tomorrow's perspective, our journey epitomizes the potent blend of style, sustainability, and ethical integrity. From our humble beginnings to our unwavering commitment to environmental and social responsibility, we inspire thoughtful decisions and drive transformative change. As our brand continues to grow and reach new heights, we remain steadfastly dedicated to our “Swell Vision” of a brighter future. 


The entire Swell Vision Team extends our heartfelt gratitude for your continuous support!
