I love this brand and I am so proud to represent it! Here is a little run down about what they stand for:
“Our suits are sustainably handmade in small batches in California, USA using eco-friendly and silky fabrics that fit your body perfectly, every time. The styles are inspired by the mountains and the desert but are born to travel. We think the Strangest thing of all is being an American-based, completely transparent company and we pride ourselves on being completely open with you with every aspect of how our suits are made.
Your Strange bikini started off as a piece of fabric in Brazil where the fabric is carefully created using a process that uses significantly less water and energy than typical manufacturing processes. After the fabric is made, any water used in the process is carefully treated to remove any oil or dye. The unused leftover pieces of fabric are then sent to non-profits, schools, and cities around Brazil.
The finished, buttery soft fabric is then sent to the Bay Area in California where each style of is carefully cut out. Some of the fabric is sent to Reno where Ali hand sews any custom items that are ordered. After the styles are cut out, some of the fabric goes to Los Angeles to be transformed into the straps of the suits and the rest of the fabric gets sent to a factory in San Francisco. There, our bikinis are hand sewn by a small group of women who have been specially trained to sew this sort of fabric!
The completed suits are then examined at our warehouse in Reno to make sure they’re in perfect condition before they’re shipped to Strangers like you.”
They are designed by an absolute bad ass and one of the most thoughtful women I know, Meet Ali:
“Ali Conway started Strange Bikinis because she was tired of the struggle. Living in Los Angeles, California, it was impossible to avoid the dichotomoy of swimwear: sick designs or high quality? And at what price? That’s when she realized that we shouldn’t have to choose. Why not have it all? She began small, creating custom pieces for her friends, who flaunted them with the swag that only comes from ultimate confidence. So maybe it was this empowering glow that her swimwear gave people, or maybe it was simply the combination of quality and uniqueness, but nonetheless a huge demand for Strange Bikinis was born.
Throughout the years, Ali’s never lost touch with her sole purpose for starting the line in the first place: the women behind it. Every Stranger out there adventuring the world, handstanding in her studio, and dancing at festivals inspires the next dreamy bikini. The connection that Ali has with each one of her customers is exactly what drives her.
Making women feel their best and looking their strangest,
Ali Conway: killin’ the bikini game.”
