Sketching and Conceptualization: Bringing Ideas to Life

Once inspired, we pass out moodboard onto our designers who put pen to paper to bring our vision to life. Sketching is where ideas take their initial form. Our designers emphasize clean lines, innovative silhouettes, and attention to detail in every sketch. Our team ensures that each design not only looks stunning but also promises an impeccable fit and exceptional comfort.

Material Selection: From Texture to Luxury

Choosing the right fabrics and materials is crucial in delivering swimwear that feels as good as it looks. We work with high-quality materials that withstand the elements. Whether it's a blend of nylon for elasticity or a specially treated fabric for UV protection, we prioritize both style and sustainability.

Prototyping and Fittings: Perfecting the Fit

The journey from sketch to prototype involves meticulous craftsmanship. Our designs are transformed into 3D prototypes that capture the essence of the envisioned piece. These prototypes undergo rigorous fittings and adjustments to ensure that they flatter a range of body types and offer the support needed for an active day at the beach. Our team of fit experts collaborates closely with our Balinese manufacturers to achieve swimwear that feels like a second skin.

Manufacturing in Bali: Where Artistry Meets Skill

At Pinksalt Swimwear, we're proud to work with skilled artisans in Bali, Indonesia to manufacture our swimwear. The island's rich tradition of craftsmanship adds a touch of artistry to each piece. Our manufacturers meticulously cut, stitch, and assemble every swimsuit, paying attention to every seam and detail. It's a harmonious blend of modern design and time-honored techniques that results in the premium quality we're known for.
