ABOUT KALEiiA

 

HOW KALEiiA BiKiNiS WAS BORN!

Kaleiia – inspired by the love for the ocean and a very special girl called Lexi Kaleiia who mostly lives her life in a bikini and enjoys the beach, waves and nature that surrounds her. Loves swimming, Loves the sun, loves the wind, loves the beauty that mother nature gives.

Lexi Kaleiia and Tj Kaleiia. Daughter and Dad with Mom Madelaine they started designing bikinis and making them for Lexi’s love of wearing bikinis all the time from a very young age, as much as she could, she basically refused to wear swimsuits, bikinis is all she wanted. Growing up between Kite Surfers, Surfers & Girls/Women in bikinis, it’s just the way of life she loves. Bikinis was all she wanted to wear from a young age, and as she grew, it became a lot of bikinis! Into her teens having a massive collection of bikinis and bikinis being so much part of her wardrobe, something she really just loves to wear. We created a Bikini Brand with her vision & inspiration of being a Eco Conscious Bikini Brand, minimising the footprint of swimwear women & girls wear, while Designing Eco Conscious bikinis that sit amazing, feels amazing, and looks amazing and just gives you that sexy natural flair & perfect fit.

With all this inspiration and determination from Lexi Kaleiia and her Dad and Mom’s support to create a Bikini Brand. Lexi’s Bikini love for Bikinis became a Brand we call Kaleiia Bikinis. We chose the name Kaleiia for a very specific reason, Kaleiia representing & meaning who Lexi Kaleia is.

Kaleiia pronounced as – (ka-lei-a) derives from a combination of two Hawaiian Mythological princesses. Describing a beautiful, amazing, free spirited, wild girl whom everyone loves and adores.

She might not be a pro surfer, epic kiteboarder or extreme board rider legend, but she truly loves the ocean. She has a deep connection with the mesmerizing beauty of the nature that surrounds her, it makes her feel free! She  wants to preserve, protect and conserve the ocean & nature and the beauty of it. This is her love,  her life and her story.

We should be more conscious of what we buy and where we buy it from.

What happens to the millions of bikinis bought each year? Where do they end up when they are no longer wearable? Tons of plastics and waste are disposed of each year, ending up in the ocean and landfills. Let’s make sure our bikinis don’t add to the waste.

So ask yourself this question, Is my bikini adding to the destruction of our planet? Are we destroying the very  nature  we love? To solve this problem Kaliia came up with a few great ways to protect the ocean life and nature that surrounds it.

Kaleiia’s bikinis are made from recycled or recyclable fabrics. We don’t use any hardware in any of our designs. We use a minimum amount of elastics and we also don’t believe in fast fashion. We have a standard range that will always be available. We might add one or two new colors and designs throughout the year. We are planning to bring out a range of our own print designs for our bikinis using eco ink and soon launch our Beachwear eco range. Our Swing tags and postage boxes are all recycled paper, we try not to use any plastic when shipping your special order.         

Our Eco Bikini fabric is made from fibre created by Repreve- regenerated plastic bottles which are turned into fabric and can be recycled again and again. Keeping it out of landfills and our oceans. 1 Bikini set  =  14 Plastic bottles

In combination with the regenerated fabric, recyclable fabrics, we created a range of hand made 100% cotton bikinis made from locally sourced hand dyed cotton, made ethically in South Africa which is Oeko-Teko 100 list approved which we will be launching next year. A very special edition coming to Kaleiia!

Kaleiia Bikinis is a smart choice when you’re looking for an environmentally conscious brand. We will strive to becoming even more eco conscious as technology improves and more options become available to the industry to lighten our footprint and our customers footprint as much possible we can.

Join me ‘Lexi Kaleiia” in wearing Kaleiia Bikinis. Lighten your footprint! or wear nothing at all!
