From concept to creation: the Tulum print

Inspired by the lush tropical jungle and the wondrous wildlife. The Tulum will take you to a place where steamy days are contrasted to warm soft sands, crisp, cool water and rustling palm leaves.

Baiia’s founder envisioned a timeless animal print with a twist, something that could transcend trends and live amongst Baiia’s existing iconic swimwear and beach styles. Working closely with our talented graphic designer, Jas who helped bring this vision to life. Starting by drawing a Zebra print, Jas infused palm leaf detailing into the design in swirls of black and warm sand tones.
