Ethically Handmade Bikinis?

Posted on

Trifena Belle Swimwear | Reversible | Quality | Beautiful

One of the most important features of our bikinis are that they are ethically handmade on the beautiful paradise island of Bali, Indonesia.

Q: What does this mean?

Basically, we don’t use factories.

We don't use factories where the workers get paid the minimum wage and often with questionable working conditions.

Having an Indonesian background, we are able to work closely with a Master Artisan, who networks with highly experienced swimwear seamstresses across Bali, who work from their homes to hand-make our beautiful bikinis. These seamstresses are able to schedule and organise their own working time around their family life and commitment.

Q: Why are our prices reasonable compared to other bikini companies who have their pieces also made in Bali? 

We don't have to put a steep price tag on our bikinis, as we don’t have to deal with factories who command high cost prices and high minimum order quantities.

Because we work directly with our Master Artisan and the seamstresses, we are able to pay a fair cost price for each bikini. We have also chosen not to drive down the cost prices to try and make as much profit as we could.

We decided to keep our Retail prices below AUD $100 for a set of high quality & ethically handmade bikini. We believe that beautiful quality does not have to cost the earth!


Q: Tell us some "industry secrets"

  • Many Australian & American swimwear brands make their bikinis in Bali.
  • Their retail prices are anywhere between AUD $150-$300 for a bikini set.
  • They work with small to large factories, who charge them high cost prices and require higher minimum order quantities. This means they have to pay very expensive up-front costs that at the end of the day, they pass on to you the customers.


Q: What makes Trifena Belle Swimwear different than these other brands?

Having an Indonesian background, we are able to work directly on the ground with our Master Artisan.

We speak the language.

We know the intricacies of doing business in Bali without being taken for a ride.

We understand the culture and how this impacts on how to do business there.

It's a well known fact in Bali that there is the local price for the "locals" versus the tourist price for everyone else who doesn't speak the lingo and who is a foreigner. Even though we are an Australian company, because one of our founders is Indonesian, we get far greater access than our competition.

In essence, we pay the "local price" and we choose to pass on the savings to our customers.
