Created in Encinitas, Southern California and manufactured in Bali, Indigo Swimwear was founded by Philippa Brenninkmeyer in early 2018. With a love for the beach life, she decided the only way to create something she believed in was to create something that had a purpose. Indigo Swimwear is not purely swimwear, there is much more behind this brand and the way it supports the waters in which it is made to swim.
All of the fabrics used by Indigo are made with ECONYL® yarn and are 100% regenerated nylon. The yarn that makes up all these pieces comes from old fishing nets and ocean waste! On top of that all of Indigo’s packaging, from drawstring bags to hangtags and thank you cards, are eco-friendly. Philippa also makes sure that a percent of each piece manufactured goes to beach clean ups in Bali through the R.O.L.E Foundation's 'Zero Waste to Oceans' initiative, and a percent of each piece sold goes to local beach clean ups in California through the Surfrider Foundation! We are 100% committed to keeping our oceans waste free.
From Indigo Swimwear, we thank you for looking gorgeous, living a more sustainable lifestyle, and in the process believing in saving our oceans and sea life.
- FOUNDER & CEO -
I was born in California, grew up in Germany, and always dreamed about doing something big and meaningful with my life!
Traveling the world and exploring new places has always been the thing I loved the most! On those journeys the most magical places for me have always been by the ocean. As long as I can remember, living near the ocean was a must for me, as the simple bikini life is all I ever craved. Thankfully I was able to make that dream come true when I moved back to Southern California in 2017, after traveling through Australia for a year and enjoying the quiet beach town life of Byron Bay. A year in Australia on my own, led me to truly find myself and realise what it was I really wanted to do with my life. It simply opened my eyes to what my passion is in life, and led me to the path of moving back to where I was born and starting a business with a purpose, Indigo Swimwear. A vision to save the place I love most, the ocean, and in return contribute to sea life conservation by creating eco-friendly, sustainable swimwear was a no-brainer for me.
I hope that you all see the beautiful, glowing, strong women that you are when you look at yourself in Indigo Swimwear and acknowledge the good you've contributed to!
Thank you for being an Indigo Babe!!!
