Starting a new business can be a scary and challenging at the best of times but I never imagined that I would be starting one during a global pandemic. I have worked in fashion for my whole career but always struggled with how unsustainable the industry is. Last year I decided to take a year off from my career to go travelling, re-energise and search for some inspiration. One month later ULU Swim and Surf was born.
ULU Swim and Surf was inspired by my own experience surfing. I quickly realised swimwear options were incredibly limited, very expensive and rarely sustainably made. The brand name originates from Uluwatu, a famous surfers paradise in Bali and one of my main sources of inspiration. All of our colours and designs have been inspired by the beautiful places I've visited across the world and the people I've met along the way. One of my most treasured memories is jotting down the first range plan on the back of a placemat in a restaurant in Santorini. I had just been surfing in Portugal and had first thought of the idea lying in a hammock at Dreamsea Surf Camp, glass of wine in hard with no idea if my idea would come to fruition. Fast forward two months and I was surfing in the canary islands designing styles and picking colours lying on the beach. Sadly my back-packing journey had to come to an end but it was the most eye-opening and inspiring trip, and I am so proud to launch my business.
