Bantu Wax is a joyful young label out of Africa using classic swim silhouettes to make a statement with traditional tribal prints spiced with modern color. Their brand imagery celebrating Africa’s history of surf culture underscores the united flavor this global sport and sensibility brings. If I had a surf shop, these would be front and center! Here’s a bit from their site– you can see they’ll be charming their way into the world quickly!
“INSPIRED BY AFRICA’S TRANSITION FROM DARK CONTINENT TO BEARER OF LIGHT, TALES OF THE MERMAID GODDESS OF OCEANS MAMI WATA, AND A PASSION FOR SURFING, BANTU WAS CREATED BY MERGING THE RICH HISTORY OF AFRICAN ART AND TEXTILES WITH AFRICA’S DEEPLY ROOTED SURF CULTURE.” Suits can be found at these retailers; The Webster online, or Barneys CO-OP and Saks stores only.
