WE ARE SPHYRNAS


What's with the Name?
      SPHYRNA, from the Greek "Hammer", is the genus of Hammerhead Sharks, the earliest first recorded in the 1700s.  We’re here to be as different as the hammerheads we so adore with unique designs and handmade goods. 
 
 

 Mission:
 
Sphyrnas was created to inform, engage, and compel folks to take action in improving our ocean ecosystems through our one-of-a-kind designs.  A deep passion for nature drives everything we do- every stitch, every cut, each fold and handwritten thank you note is made to stand out from the rest. 


     To inspire shark conservation and educational outreach through design and activism.
 
 
 
How do you help save sharks?

   We partner with shark conservation and research organizations to help bring about a brighter future for sharks and our oceans. In addition to our monetary or product donations, our designs are fighting back against the harmful stigma surrounding sharks- we are spreading shark love, not fear.


We aren't just another clothing brand, we work hard to provide helpful resources, share shark knowledge, fun facts and amplify ways to take direct action via our social platforms and Shark Blog.
 
E-meet our 'Shark Partners' here! Follow along with them on social media for more information on their shark-saving efforts. 



Higher Standards: 

    We want to empower people to explore and conserve our shared natural world.  Caring about where and who makes our clothes is vital to accomplishing our goals in creating shark styles that are actually sustainable and making a real difference for not only sharks but fellow human beings.
 
   We place the upmost importance on our environmental impact as well as striving to be apart of a global solution.  Only manufactures that place the same level of importance on sustainability and ethicality while championing conservation efforts will pair with the Sphyrnas logo.

From the Founder:
 
     “The goal is to make shark conservation more approachable- to encourage people to look beyond their 'monster' stigma and see sharks as the vital parts of the ocean they are. 
 
Sphyrnas is as much about bringing awareness to sustainability and environmental justice issues as it is establishing a positive interest in sharks.
 
I believe change starts with one person. If I can inspire someone to learn more about sharks or to take a more active role in protecting our oceans- you can too!”
