Giving back to communities on local and global levels are an important part of the Isla Aditi® brand identity and as global citizens, empowering women and creating sustainable environments. A portion of our profits go to ComeUnity Now, supporting higher education for Maasai women in Kenya and providing sustainable, clean water sources in their rural communities. Additionally, we work with local beach communities to support healthy oceans.
How did it begin? From a passionate place. After enduring a life-altering experience, designer Jessica West traveled to the Caribbean and spent time on an island that ultimately changed her life. She was inspired by the people she met, pristine resorts, and the natural beauty of the island. During her time there, she developed a deep appreciation for women; their perseverance, and unwavering strength. When she returned to her Los Angeles home, she began creating the swimwear brand, Isla Aditi® to empower and inspire women, celebrating their unique beauty and strength.
What’s in a name? Isla comes from the island inspiration and Aditi represents the spirit of the brand: Be adventurous, boldly inspired, and empowered to live Boundless & Free®.
