Our Story

Founded by Kim Champlin in 2019, KIMKINI is a sustainable luxe swimwear brand based in Dubai. Our swimsuits are ethically handmade to order in our Dubai sewing studio. 

KIMKINI swimsuits look fabulous on everybody because they are fully customisable for EVERY body. The swimsuits are made with RecoTex swimwear fabric which is created from 100% recycled ocean waste such as discarded fish nets and plastic bottles found in the ocean. 



KIMKINI is recognised by our staple calligraphy print which is incorporated in every design. It is Arabic and English spellings of our brand name KIMKINI, a tribute to Kim’s hometown of Dubai. 

KIMKINI has a totally unique process which sets us apart from every other swimwear brand out there. 

Everything is done in our Dubai design studio, from creating our unique fabrics, ethically sewing the swimwear to order and packing the kinis in our reusable cotton drawstring bags. 

“I’ve grown up in Dubai and have always loved swimwear. I had so many swimsuits from different shops but typically felt there was something missing. I’m extremely picky with my swimwear, I used to hate how swimsuits were non-reversible, always used white lining which would show along the outline of the swimsuits, and so on. I wished I could tweak minor things even down to the colour of the metal cord ends on the swimsuit straps. Then the idea was born for people to have the freedom to make their own customisable and cute swimwear that doesn’t cost the earth.” – Kim

“I wanted others to have the choice of being able to create their own dreamy swimwear, such as choosing their own colours of material and styles of bikini tops and bikini bottoms to create a unique bikini set or onepiece. It was extremely important to me to have the option for people to add any extra customisations to add on the notes at checkout too such as specifying the back coverage to a thong or full coverage.” – Kim

KIMKINI is purposefully an affordable ‘slow fashion’ swimwear brand which is paving the way in sustainable fashion giving young girls and women eco-friendly and stylish kini choices.
