BEHIND THE BRAND
Established in the autumn of 2019 by founder Ashlea Baker, Bakini Deluxe proudly began its journey creating exclusively handmade swimwear. Since then, the brand has evolved into a premium slow fashion womenswear brand creating both made-to-order and pre-made designs.
VISION AND MISSION
The heartbeat of BD is our customer and our mission to continuously produce a variety designs which you will love and feel confident and comfortable wearing. One of the main driving forces behind BD is body confidence and we strive to empower every woman who wears one of our designs to feel the most beautiful version of herself, regardless of body size, shape or type.
We offer a selection of both made-to-order and pre-made designs, which are created with meticulous attention to detail. All materials used, including threads, elastic and needles are of the highest quality, to ensure each item maintains our high standards of quality, always. We source fabrics from both small independently owned and large manufacturers from every corner of the globe, to ensure we can create the most unique selection of designs, taking inspiration from different cultures and communities.
Made-to-order designs are sketched, designed and created by hand, entirely in house within the BD studio. Pre-made designs are sketched and designed in house and are ethically manufactured in Europe.
THE BD STUDIO
The BD studio is based in East London, United Kingdom. Our small team manage a smooth running of the business entirely in house, from cutting, pinning and sewing fabrics and garment designing / sampling, to customer service queries and dispatching orders. The studio is a zero waste workplace and all waste material including paper, plastic and scrap fabric is recycled in a responsible manner.
Bakini Deluxe is an eco-conscious business with an eye on sustainability and ethical practices, and we are always proactively seeking ways to improve.
ECO FRIENDLY FABRICS
Whilst maintaining our high standards of quality, every single design we produce is made with at least 50% recycled fabric, which is manufactured with nylon waste materials such as discarded fishing nets!
ECO FRIENDLY PACKAGING
With a focus on minimising single use plastic, our designs are packaged in re-usable Bakini Deluxe zip bags, which are great for keeping your bikini protected and stored between wears. Our postal bags are bio-degradable and our packaging boxes are recyclable.
