Hey there! Margarita and Carolina here, sisters and co-creators of Kinira,
with the story of how we made our biggest dream come to life.
It all started when we decided to make fashion our life. Taking advantage of the good name and reputation our hometown Medellin has in textiles and fashion, Kinira, a Colombian swimwear company was born.
Our journey started in 2014, selling custom designed swimsuits in Colombia with a focus on serving our local community. In these initial years we saw more and more requests from curvy women who found themselves struggling to find swimsuits that made them feel comfortable and confident. It was then that we realized that we wanted to be the brand that made women of all sizes feel empowered in their own skin and focused our energy and talents into designing swimwear sized L to 5XL tailored to exemplify their unique shape and curves.
As Kinira grew, we quickly learnt that we were not the only ones who believed in our products. We were warmly received by the local and international communities alike, gaining recognition and even winning awards for our innovative designs (list below). But the most rewarding part has been the messages we receive from our clients, who thank us for giving them back the confidence to proudly wear their stylish swimsuits.
In 2020, Kinira decided to try something new, and in May launched for the first time ever a loungewear collection as a response to COVID-19. Since then our product offerings now include new leggings, sweaters, jackets, t-shirts, and more.
We have always prided ourselves in promoting body confidence, not only in our plus size clients, but for EVERY woman of EVERY size. That is why, with the launch of our new Better Together altheisure collection, we decided to offer for a broader range of sizes, starting from XS up to 4XL.
If you have read up to this point, you now know the story of Kinira and how she was born. We would like to thank you for your support, and curiosity about how this brand that we love so much came to be what it is today. We are thankful for all the women out there who have helped build Kinira and are excited to have you be a part of our continued journey.
