Super Natural. Super Sexy. Super Sustainable.
with sustainable innovation. Vitamin A bikinis and bodysuits are designed and made locally in
California, in their signature plant-based and recycled fabrics. Amahlia is inspired by ‘70s
California beach style; she’s all about the simple shapes and flawless fit, and a sunny natural
sexiness that is in her DNA. Vitamin A is a member of 1% for the Planet, and gives back a
portion of proceeds to environmental organizations who work to protect our oceans.
Designer and founder Amahlia Stevens grew up in Southern California with a love for nature in her DNA. Before Vitamin A, she designed for Patagonia, Levis Strauss and Co, Hollister Co, and Stüssy. Her time with Patagonia Founder Yvon Chouinard inspired her to create her own sustainable swimwear.
As Amahlia began to research materials, suppliers told her that there was “no market” for sustainable swimwear. This propelled her to create it herself. In 2006, Amahlia worked with the top mills in Italy, Canada, and California to perfect the process. Four years later, she introduced EcoLus - the first premium swim fabric made from recycled nylon. Today, her vision is quickly becoming industry standard.
