Each color of shorts is named after the habitat where the real-world embroidered animal lives on planet earth.

The Hawksbill Turtle featured on our Bahia shorts is considered to be one of the most beautiful species of sea turtle for their colorful shells. They are found in tropical waters around the world, including the Bahia coastline near Salvador, Brazil. Their population has dropped by 80% in the last century, due to demand for their beautiful shell, which is often incorrectly marketed as “tortoiseshell.” Hawksbill turtles were hunted to near extinction before the ban on the tortoiseshell trade. Despite the illegality of the situation, the black market is alive and well. Currently, there are about 45,000 individuals left in the world.
