Hand Made with Love
Designed by Inka Williams & Reo Palmer
As a sustainable fashion label, we strongly believe in ethical practices and giving back to the community. We empower home-based female artisans by working exclusively with the local women in our village in Bali.
Our small artisan team craft Akoiaswim by hand, using traditional crocheting methods, which ensures every piece offers unrivalled quality, comfort, and natural beauty. All our clothing and bathing suits are limited editions and feature authentic designs. Each one is a true work of art that can take up to seven days to complete.
At Akoiaswim, we believe in the production of slow fashion, respecting the environment, the community, and the people who are impacted by our processes. With every original collection we make, we’re taking a conscious journey to create true value for everyone involved, from the artisans to the wearer.
In 2020 and beyond, we’re focused on becoming a more sustainable fashion label. With eco-friendly and plastic-free packaging, natural dyes, and organic, local materials, you can feel confident that every piece is crafted and delivered using conscious, earth-friendly practices.
Becoming a sustainable, zero-waste business hasn’t been easy. But for us, it is worth the time and money. Knowing we're giving back to the earth means everything to us.
Even today, our work is still not done. We are constantly developing new ways to make Akoiaswim more sustainable. Our dream since the beginning has been to make a difference by inspiring the conscious consumer movement and providing an ethical and eco-friendly framework that can guide other fashion labels on their path toward sustainability.
As part of our commitment to eco swimwear and apparel:
• We use, sustainable, locally sourced 100% cotton materials.
• Our tags are made from recycled paper and natural strings from the earth.
• We never use plastic stickers.
• We try to create as little waste as possible, and we upcycle any leftover cotton.
