Rene Geneva Design began as Faernyn's Grove in 1997. Faernyn's Grove has evolved into the brand name for their corset line.
We hold Environmental and Social Responsibility in the highest regard. It motivates and inspires everything we do in our company.
We exclusively work with Eco Friendly materials, including certified organic cotton, bamboo, formaldehyde-free and wildcrafted silk, hemp blends; and many rare textiles that are hand spun and woven by villages across the world, including unique cottons, loose woven silks, and bark fabric.

All sales help a higher cause.
Scraps for Schools™ recycles our unused fabric scraps and donates them to pre- and elementary schools to help bring awareness to children within their art projects.
We are heading the Sun Power Project to help facillitate the installation of solar electricity into a women's sewing project in Nicaragua, which will in turn help support the surrounding community.
Ms. Geneva is the founding director of the Geneva Foundation for Woman and the Arts, and is currenly working on a project that will aid women in Central Nicaragua with sewing skills and product development. This project already has the support of the Whole Planet Foundation and is slated to break ground in late 2009. We will be excited to post updates when we have them.
Our company car uses 99% bio-diesel, we use eco-friendly printing, wind-power webhosting, and our company's carbon footprint is further reduced as our office runs on wind power through Austin's Green Choice Program.
