Why Buying Locally Designed Swimwear Is A Must May 11, 2018

Why Buying Locally Designed Swimwear Is A Must, Honolulu, Hawaii

Hawaii is arguably one of the places where bikinis are queen! Whether you prefer to go skimpy or full coverage, a swimsuit is a must regardless if you’re local or a tourist. So when in Hawaii, do as the locals do: support local boutiques, like Born of the Water!

Why Support Local Designers?

When you support local swimwear designers, not only are you helping these individuals grow their business, but you’re also making an amazing investment. By investing in a Hawaii-designed swimsuit, you’re purchasing a souvenir that you can actually use (rather than it gathering dust somewhere in your home)!

Local Designers Help Those In Need

Some designers donate kainoa nani one-piece bikiniproceeds to individuals in need. Giving back to the community is important, no matter if it’s close to home or miles away. Kainoa NaniTM is a brand that we carry at Born of the Water, and they donate 10% of their profits to “The Wonderfully Made Project.”

Local Designers Care About How Their Products Are Made

Customers have wondered why they pay a certain price point for the products we carry. Many of the brands that we house in our boutique aren’t limited to swimwear. We feature sunscreen and jewelry by Ao OrganicsTM and Sea RainTM, that are made locally. We also feature an activewear line by Lilikoi BrazilTM, whose products are made in a factory that is Fair-Trade. The unique crochet bikinis we carry by Li’a HawaiiTM are all handmade by an artist from Brazil.

So whether you live in Honolulu or you’re on vacation, support local businesses like Born of the Water! Like us on Facebook or Instagram for product updates as well as #bowbabe how-to’s. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the shop to speak to a friendly associate at (808) 944-8314.
