Pronounced “bai-ah”. Meaning: one who has the capacity to change the world for the better.
We are proud to say our swimwear line is made by incredibly talented seamstresses in China. We’ve partnered up with an amazing manufacturer who is genuinely concerned about ethics and sustainability, about environmental issues and worker welfare. Due to their change in adopting more of an ethical Corporate Social Responsibility, their prices have risen and they’ve lost a lot of fashion labels to cheaper manufacturers in other Asian countries. BAIIA felt it was our responsibility to support a business who is trying to do the right thing but are losing support.
Our soft & durable recycled nylon is constructed in Italy and made from industrial and post-consumer waste such as fishnets, carpets, plastic bottles and textiles that would otherwise pollute our beautiful land and oceans. It is certified Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex; the world’s leader in testing fabrics to regulate harmful substances. Our water-based dyes have achieved accreditation to the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS), OEKO-TEX® and CLEAR TO WEAR certification schemes. We use only water-based inks to achieve our swimwear’s rich and vibrant colours.
