Akoia Swim - Monte Indigo Dip
Let me start by saying how much I love discovering handmade fashion that combines traditional craftsmanship with modern design. And this is exactly what Akoia Swim, a Bali-based brand, has done with their latest creation - the Monte Indigo Dip bikini. This crochet bikini is a true masterpiece, made with organically grown indigo leaves, hand-dyed, and crocheted by Balinese women using traditional techniques passed down through generations. The result is a stunning Brazilian cut bikini that is both sexy and sustainable. What I find truly impressive is the time and dedication it takes to create just one piece. Each bikini can take up to ten days to complete, making it a true work of art.

This proves that crochet swimsuits have become a timeless piece in the wardrobe of anyone who loves swimwear, rather than a passing trend.
