Handmade Swimwear & Bikinis - Top Brands Crafted By Artisans
Handmade swimwear is something that South American swimwear labels excel at, especially the brands from Colombia. Women empowerment is built into the ethos of these brands and one way they help is by employing female artisans in rural and impoverished communities.

Well-known luxury swimwear label Agua Bendita is perhaps best known worldwide for its handmade swimwear. The brand's main goal is to offer employment to the women of Colombia. To enable that, it created the AB Hearts program which employs mothers and at-risk women so they can earn a fair wage by putting their artisan sewing skills to use and support their families and improve their living conditions.

Peruvian label Capittana, pictured, and other handmade swimwear brands draw on their rich surroundings to inspire their designs. You'll find an abundance of exotic and feminine floral prints from these brands.
