The Australian label She Made Me is the go-to place for romantic swimwear with retro charm.
Handmade crochet bikinis and one-pieces from Down Under in delicate pastel colors by She Made Me are the ultimate essentials for hot hours by the water.
Swimwear for the highest demands
Crochet bikinis are a must-have for the summer. They are not only stylish but also incredibly comfortable. And when they're from Australia, the country that's synonymous with surfers and sandy beaches, we just can't get enough of it. The label She Made Me inspires us with handmade unique pieces from Down Under.
Every piece from She Made Me is unique, because as a handmade product every part is unique. In India or Indonesia, the bikini tops, one-pieces or crop tops are crocheted in small factories.
Back to the Seventies
She Made Me swimwear is inspired by seventies swimwear. The label relies on muted shades of mauve or old rose for the hand-made crocheted bikinis, bathing suits and tops. But the pieces are also available in plain white or nude. Playful details such as tassels at the ends of the long straps, which have been given a dip-dye print by hand, accentuate the design of the beachwear. The swimwear is lined in the right places with fabric that is partly in a contrasting color – farewell to nipple alarms!
The Australian label She Made Me offers charming beachwear with a retro look. The essentials are carefully crocheted in India from soft cotton. In addition to cute bikinis and comfortable bathing suits, the collection includes trendy crop tops, wrap skirts and mini dresses. All She Made Me pieces have a playful design. Ruffles, tassels or little bows underline the boho flair of the Australian brand.
Handwork and tradition
The designs by She Made Me are made in the spirit of "slow fashion". This means that it can take up to two weeks to produce a single pair of bikini bottoms. Crocheted by skilled artisans, the pieces are essential for an alluring boho look at the beach.
Characterized by craftsmanship and the value of human craftsmanship, each She Made Me piece is crafted by local artisans in Bali or hand crocheted in limited quantities in India. The values of the label are therefore in stark contrast to the mass production that is unfortunately common in the swimwear industry today.
From the surfer town of Byron Bay to the big wide world
The headquarters of the She label Made Me is located in Byron Bay on Australia's east coast. A hip area with lots of young people, surfer boys and girls. One of them is Chloe Dunlop, designer and founder of the beachwear label. Chloe previously worked in the swimwear industry for seven years and brought a wealth of experience and know-how to her own label. For She Made Me, Chloe designs timeless, sophisticated pieces and celebrates traditions of craftsmanship. Each piece is handcrafted in New Delhi or Bali.
Chloe is a nomad at heart, traveling around the world to find inspiration for her collection. The swimwear designer is particularly attracted to exotic, remote and foreign cultures. There she finds inspiration in local colours, landscapes, textiles and textures that contribute to the uniqueness of her beachwear line.
