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.




Our  Mission:


     To inspire conservation and educational outreach of sharks and the ocean through use of design and activism.


    Sphyrnas was created to inform, engage, and compel folks to take action in improving our ocean ecosystems through our one-of-a-kind designs.  


   Our deep passion for nature drives everything we do; every stitch, every cut, every tag we attach was made to stand out from the rest.


   By wearing the Sphyrnas brand, you’re repping so much more than a sustainable tee - you’re helping spur conversations and inspire others to take action for our natural world. 




Our Goal:


      We’re here to do our part to save sharks, seas and everything in between. We are here to be as different as the hammerheads we so adore with unique designs and handmade goods.


      Every purchase leads to a brighter future for sharks and the seas. We donate our sale proceeds directly to conservation and research efforts across the globe. Plus, through our SharkPartner add-on patch program your order can have even more of an impact.

Message from our Flounder:



     “My ultimate dream is to make the topic of ‘sharks’ approachable, make them as ‘cool’ as they really are and get people to look beyond their jaws. 


Sphyrnas is bringing awareness to ocean sustainability as well as establishing a positive interest in shark conservation. Through unique designs I’m integrating shark knowledge and current issues impacting marine species into culturally relevant platforms. 


Change starts with one person! I am excited to inspire the curiosity of even one person to learn more about sharks; that one person may just be the difference the ocean depends on.”

   Caring about where and who makes our clothes is vital to accomplishing our goal in creating cool clothes that are also eco-friendly. We place the upmost importance on environmental impact as well as striving to be apart of the global solution; it's vital we seek out the best, most innovative companies for our partnerships. Only manufactures that place the same level of importance on sustainability and ethicality while championing conservation make the cut to wear the Sphyrnas logo. 


    For base clothing materials, we're thrilled to work with ALTERNATIVE APPAREL  , an industry-leading sustainable clothing manufacturer out of Georgia, USA.  We also are a proud member of the Noissue Eco-Alliance with using recycled or compostable mailers!
