My name is Sara, TOWERS SWIMWEAR’S founder and designer.
When I was 14 years old I wanted to stand out in my group of friends and get a lot of attention. At the same time my Mom ran into some money problems, which meant I needed to create a source of income to support myself. So I started creating my own accessories and making them by hand.
The accessories were outrageous shapes, colors and materials. I wanted the girls who wore them to look different, so they could show their authenticity.
My first clients were my friends and then with the boom of Facebook, I started shipping them all around Colombia.
When I graduated from high school I launched my first swimwear collection and opened my first store in Medellin, Colombia.

FIRST SWIMWEAR COLLECTIONS
Since 2010, Towers has evolved into a brand that offers both cool swimwear and sustainability. The fabrics are made from recycled plastic bottles, have eco tags and they come in compostable packaging that is made from corn.
Currently, all our swimwear is ethically made with 100% Colombian materials by women in Medellin who are single mothers supporting their households.
