Cali Dreaming: Prints as Wearable Art from California

Cali Dreaming was founded in 2010 by the Canadian duo Carrie Jardine and Lisa Priolo. Designed in Venice, CA and made in Downtown Los Angeles, the women’s swim and resort line channels the sun-soaked sands and free-spirited attitude of the California beaches.

With an appreciation for simplicity and the subtle palette of nude colors, Cali Dreaming’s signature beige shimmer fabric is the core of their brand. Their seasonal collections feature textured and luxurious fabrics as well as original art prints, allowing their customers to build their own, personalized Cali Dreaming collection that is both versatile and reliable.

Their elegant designs accentuate the woman’s natural form and evoke an air of effortlessness whether she’s lounging by the pool, getting lost on a bike path, or walking along the shore line with her toes in the sand.

As a brand, Cali Dreaming embraces the bare-faced, natural woman, and has made it their mission to reduce their use of plastic, carbon footprint, and spread awareness of the harmful effects of single-use plastic.
