Love this bikini top! I just wish there were more options for a bottom to match!
Unique Surf Bikinis from Kauai, Hawaii
My name is Rose and I am originally from Boulder, Colorado. I began sewing Rose Clothes, snowboard and street wear in high school. I moved to Kauai in 1998 and in between moved to Oahu for college, focusing on art and photography classes. I studied fashion for a semester in Florence, Italy. After Italy I returned to Kauai, I began Graffiti Bikini in 2008.
Graffiti Bikini is inspired from a love of travel, the ocean and ocean sports; as well as the desire to create beautiful, edgy and practical swimwear for surfing. I started out making bikinis for myself and friends and as more people saw our bikinis the demand grew for me to focus on Graffiti Bikini. I quit my "day" job and began to sew and design Graffiti Bikini full time... from there I sold my bikinis at the Hanalei Farmers Market on Saturdays, my website, trunk shows and on easy.
I've expanded to also design "Surf Trip" by GRAFFITI BIKINI. This collection is designed by me and produced in a small workshop on Bali. This collection has allowed me to fill the retail demand for my bikinis and gives me more opportunities to surf in Indonesia. :) My etsy site is primarily my handmade Kauai collection, however, I also add some of the Surf Trip items as well.
I love to create different and beautiful bikinis featuring lace, decorative elastics, and unique trims. My designs focus on really cute brazilian bottoms, very comfortable tops, and bikinis for an active woman . Most designs should handle ocean sports and last a long time. I often get only a half a yard of materials so pieces really can sell on a first- come basis. I keep all the scrap materials to make hair ties, fill pillows,and make fishing lures, so although I do not use natural material I try my best to reduce waste.
I love the ocean and I am extremely grateful to call Kauai home. I put love and beauty into each piece I create. Mahalo for letting me share my gifts with you <3.
