Our Story

Our Story

Kiwi was born out of the desire to empower and uplift women to feel comfortable with their bodies when wearing sustainable swimwear. Carolina and Nicolas, our founders, believe everyone can make a difference in the world. They understand the power of collaboration and the importance of thinking about future generations when implementing change.

Kiwi is part of the Sustainable fashion movement and our goal is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility.

We believe in a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure.

Kiwi’s swim collection debut is September 2019, made from a revolutionary and sustainable fabric made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon from abandoned fishing nets in the ocean and other nylon waste. Our label is committed to inspire, influence and empower our community of women to become conscious consumers and passionate about making a positive impact on the environment.

We are not only in business to make women happy, but also to help nature.

Our Mission:

Kiwi is a product of our passions and beliefs. Our mission is to create swimwear that celebrates a woman’s originality and empowers her to love herself and her body. Our designs will make women feel comfortable and confident when wearing a sustainable piece.

We believe in the cause for a cleaner ocean. We want to be part of the solution and not the problem. It is our mission, through our sustainable swimwear and wider community efforts, to raise awareness on the state of our oceans and lead the way for other brands to adopt more sustainable values and practices.
