Always in Akina.

We take pride in the reincarnation of post consumer waste into all our fabrics, helping to reduce the environmental impact. Each collection is committed to our vision to use sustainable materials while embodying the goodness and individuality of the women who wear our garments.

It is all about locally-made swimwear for sassy women, that feels good to wear without compromising the earth.
— Akina Label

And with that, they sum up just about every reason why I am so proud to be spotted out roaming in their pieces. Then again, “spotted out” might not be the best description, and “living in” would be more accurate, as I have been known to have many afternoon naps in their pieces, post-beach days or tidal pool swims.
