High bar? Us too.

Design standards

Exquisite elegance for every occasion. Adjustable sun coverage that elevates your wardrobe—for everyday moments, elegant occasions, and everything in between. 

From delicate and subtle to bold and statement-making, our designs offer an array of options to complement any mood or activity. Our Sol Escape capes can be worn in multiple ways giving you control over your coverage—and our Sun Gauntlet gloves come in two lengths to meet different coverage needs. 


Thoughtfully crafted by women, for women. Our prints are all limited edition—and our original designs are handmade by a dedicated, women-led team in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Founder Sharone Chin creates each original design—from sketch to prototype. She thoughtfully iterates and refines each garment until her high bar for design and functionality is met—and only then does she hand it off to her skilled manufacturing partners to produce the final product.

 

Technical standards

Luxurious materials with superior protection. Soft, breathable fabrics with UPF 50+ that blocks 98% of UVA and UVB rays—all while keeping you cool and dry. 

Our fabrics are meticulously sourced and selected for their durability, comfort, and luxuriousness. In addition to all of our products being certified to block 98% of UVA and UVB rays, our Sun Gauntlet gloves are made with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 materials—meaning they are certified to be free of chemicals harmful to humans and the environment. We are moving towards this standard for all HELIADES products—stay tuned!

 

Ethical standards

Responsibly and ethically produced. Made with the help of partners committed to leaving a gentle footprint and to supporting needs of workers and their families. Wherever possible, fabric scraps are upcycled to minimize waste.

To ensure the lightest possible environmental footprint, we carefully select partners committed to end-to-end sustainability—utilizing renewable energy sources, recycling water during manufacturing, and converting reusable fabric scraps into new materials. And, like us, our partners are small, family-owned businesses.
