Tinka Blu designs sports bikinis for the eco-conscious active woman of today. Minimalistic in design and sophisticated in functionality, our bikinis are created to stay put during surfing, yoga, beach volleyball or other activities. For our sports apparel, we use sustainable swimwear fabric that is made from recycled materials.
At Tinka Blu, we strive to create sports bikinis that stay put, give reliable support, and feel comfortable as you move.
Each model has its own sophisticated cut but all of them are designed considering women’s health and the diversity of movements of different summer activities, like surfing, yoga, beach volleyball, or swimming.
The tops are crossed at the back to take pressure away from the neck and are equipped with a soft yet strong underbust band. All bottoms feature a broader bridge in comparison to conventional bikinis.
Sophisticated functionality combined with simplicity in design
SIMPLICITY IN DESIGN
The design is clean and minimalistic complemented with delicate vivid elements. It breathes simplicity that lets a woman’s natural beauty shine. The fabric is smooth and soft and does not cut in, even when the straps are tied very tightly. All tops are kept natural without padding.
Our collection concept follows a mix-and-match approach consisting of three tops, three bottoms, in three different colours. Choose your own style by combining any design, colour, and size.
As with style and functionality, no compromises are made when it comes to quality.
The products are designed in Berlin and co-produced in Germany and Turkey. Our manufacturing partners live up to our high standards and have more than 10 years of experience in working with elastic fabrics and producing swimwear.
For our sports bikinis, we use Italian swimwear fabric that is OEKOTEX® 100 certified, dries quickly, includes UVO 50+ protection and is sun cream resistant.
Sports bikinis at the intersection of performance and sustainability
Tinka Blu aims to contribute positively to the reduction of waste and environmental footprint we leave behind. Our sustainability commitment is based on the Slow Fashion principles.
The simple design and high quality make the bikinis durable in time and can be enjoyed as much in the following seasons without “being out of fashion”. We use swimwear fabrics that are made from recycled materials where trash is reduced, reused and finds a new purpose. Our whole supply chain is carbon-foot optimized within Europe.
Furthermore, we incorporate a more sustainable approach to all business processes. We source renewable energy and our website is hosted by a green provider. Our products are packed in recycled packaging and shipped climate neutral with GoGreen.
Our approach to sustainability is also expressed in our brand name. We dropped the E at the end of Blu because it is not needed to understand that Blu is derived from blue like the ocean.
Tinka Blu is an independent label and based in Berlin.
