Colombian cult swimwear brand Agua Bendita started in 2003 when the founders, Catalina Alvarez and Mariana Hinestroza, were fashion design students. They started turning unwanted fabric scraps into bathing suits using their grandmother's sewing machine.
Agua Bendita is known for colorful swimwear made in tropical prints and ultra-feminine dresses and resort wear.
Through Agua Bendita's program AB Hearts, the brand works with female artisans who sew garments in their own homes and care for their children. The main goal of the brand is to offer employment to the women of Colombia.
