Have you tried African swimwear or swimsuit inspired by African cultures with traditional colours and textiles?

Summer is here again, the sunning time and a pleasantly fun time for beachgoers. Have you got your beach kits ready? I suggest you add these colourful and durable African swimwears.

From South Africa to The Gambia, from Kenya to Gabon, Africa is a continent with a huge and vibrant beach culture and beauty.

The continent is full of creative fashion designers with a mission to showcase the beauty of African culture to the world.

African swimwear

Do I love summertime? Yes, I do! Summertime is the best time for going to the beach and camping as well as fishing and boating. It’s a fun time when people are engaged in various activities while enjoying their bright sunning days.

Whilst getting your summer beach kits ready, I will like to remind you to add African print swimwears to your list of items.

I love the African print on swimwear, elegant, sexy and unique.

  1. Another great post by the lady in da house lol
    I think I should ask my wife to come look around maybe she would be able to have some stuff on her next shopping lists!

  2. Well, I have not tried any of these suggested swim wears and infact, I didn’t know they exist.
    Now I have other options than the usual stuff.
    Thanks for the article

  3. African fashion especially the African print have not had proper coverage in Western media.

    All we see in our TV are sick and hungry people as well as people fighting senseless wars.

    I wonder why our media don’t want to show the world the other beauties of Africa people.

    Anyway, thanks for this post because now I know where to go for my summer shopping.
