Newkini Swimwear

Newkini Swimwear

Specializing in Canadian handmade bikinis that were designed to flatter every body type. Our goal was to infuse streetwear with bikinis. We have been a business for just over a year and have rapidly grown a following. In addition to bikinis we have released sweat sets, jewelry, sunglasses, silk scarves and bucket hats. We were fortunate enough to open a pop up shop in Thunder Bay, a year after launching our business. This has helped us build personal connections with customers and has expanded our business to the local community.
