ABOUT/ OUR MARKETING
Our marketing revolves around a love for a high quality bikini that you'll keep in your swim collection for summers to come.
We have extremely limited sales.
Whilst we work with creators to promote our product, we only ever collaborate with those who truly love the product and have been wearing our brand for a long time.
We never want to encourage our customers to impulse buy, or buy more than they need. This is why you'll find out marketing revolves around the benefits of our product itself, such as quality, craftsmanship, design and prints.
