Agua Bendita is a Colombian swimwear company, created in 2003 by Catalina Álvarez and Mariana Hinestroza.In just 7 years Agua Bendita has positioned itself as one of the fastest growing swimwear brands in the world. The exclusiveness of its designs and the quality of each garment has allowed it to have good exposure in important magazines, runways and international tradeshows.
“The first collection or production was done with fabric patches and material leftovers given to us and from the beginning it was very elaborate. The patches were so small that swimsuits were completely made out of patchwork. This production was sold among friends and when we saw the uptake of the product, we began to think about creating a formal and stable company.”
The brand name arose after creating the first 20 swimsuits, since then, they have been made out of patches and they also included scapulars with religious images for good luck. The name Agua Bendita comes from the words “Agua” or Water because it is swimwear and “Bendita” which means Blessed or Holy because of the positive energy concept that wearing a garment like this radiates.
