A luxury ethical and sustainable British swimwear brand.
Launched in early 2015, Bower is a luxury ethical and sustainable British swimwear brand. Founded by Rupert Tapper and Fiona Ryn and influenced by a childhood spent by the sea at Sydney’s Fairy Bower.
Rupert and Fiona both now split their time between London, Biarritz and Amsterdam, creating a label that responds to a need for modern and beautifully constructed swimwear that retains functionality and ease of wear.
Bower's aim is to create design-led swimwear with a focus on the now with a nod to the past. The designs utilise luxury Italian fabrics, partnered with complex construction and considered details. With components sourced from Italy and France, the final product is constructed at a small, specialised factory in Italy.
Bower’s swimwear is created from fabrics produced with ECONYL®, a yarn created from post consumer plastic waste including discarded fishing nets. The clothing is 100% vegan and only produced to order. Bower strives to produce as little waste as possible, with quantities limited in order to minimise dead stock and wastage.
Bower Swimwear donates 5% of any order vale to Healthy Seas Org.
