Launched in early 2015, Bower Swimwear is a luxury ethical & sustainable British swimwear brand. Influenced by a childhood spent by the sea at Sydney’s Fairy Bower they now split their time between London & Biarritz creating a label that responds to a need for modern and beautifully constructed swimwear that retains functionality and ease of wear. Each season Bower draws inspiration from strong, unique and universally admired women, creating design-led swimwear with a focus on the now with a nod to the past. The designs utilise luxury fabrics, partnering with complex construction and considered details. With components sourced from Italy & France, the final product is constructed at a family run factory in Portugal which they visit on a regular basis. Over the past few seasons they have been working towards creating a brand that is as ethical and sustainable as possible. Using a combination of fabrics made from recycled polyamide and fishing net plus ensuring our processes and production create as little waste as possible. They source all components from factories within Europe that adhere to high standards of production and ensure safe and fair working environments for their employees. Included in the collection are SensitivEcoSystem® fabrics and also another line made from recycled fishing nets, certifying our commitment to eco sustainability and the environment.
