About Bromelia Swimwear
California-raised designer, Lauren Quinn, aims to support local female artists wherever she is living.
In order to grow authentic roots, she moved by herself to South America in 2015 without knowing anyone, nor ever living there before, to learn Portuguese, the local language, and the Brazilian culture, in order to deeply understand all aspects of ethically produced swimwear.
Along the journey, she sought out local women who had a story to tell through patterns and design. These were not high end executives, but real women with native ideas about what defines the ideal swimsuit. Born into the knowledge of how to construct a swimsuit that gracefully highlights a woman’s silhouette, this female community was empowered through ethical fair waged fashion. These women, who have been wearing swimsuits every day for their whole life, collaborated as equals in a vibrant environment of mutual respect. Bromelia Swim was born from this powerful mix of Brazilian soul and California beach lifestyle.
What is Ethical Fashion?
Ethical Fashion is created through fair paid wages, mutual respect and an abundance of creativity.
Bromelia Swimwear is created and made by an all-female creative team. From the design stage through to pattern making, from sewing to putting on the final trims, the women who make Bromelia are recognized for the work they contribute. Everyone who touches your suit is valuable, no matter how big or small their part.
