Hi, I´m Maria Barciela and I am the founder of Bach Sisters, born in New Zealand during 2020´s lockdown.
Let me tell you a little bit about my story! I have always been involved in the travel industry – I am Co-Founder of Across South America, a Boutique Agency that's been welcoming, for the past 15 years, travelers from all over the world to South America. As international travel stopped due to Covid19, I decided to start a new project – offering something that I always thought was missing in New Zealand: stylish, beautiful swimwear for real women - just like me - that balanced the perfect combination of comfort and charm, with the highest quality fabrics.
Our selection of suits is from the best Brazilian brands, where I enjoyed part of my teenage years, in Rio de Janeiro. I have always been in love with Brazilian swimwear – so colorful, cheerful and vibrant - but I thought about how to adapt their style to the beaches of New Zealand.
If you ask me about Bach Sister´s mission, I would say that we are building a diverse community of women that shares the love for stylish and fun swimwear and a passion for traveling around the wonderful sceneries of New Zealand and beautiful, wild & remote places nearby!
I personally believe that womanhood is not about appearance; it’s about feeling beautiful in our own skin.
We are a 100% online business. However we do have a home-based showroom in Auckland and we run Pop Up stores and Markets. If you prefer to check our suits, try them on or let us help you decide what's best for you, get in touch to book an appointment or check our Pop ups. If you prefer to pick online, we do have a flexible exchange policy and we deliver free to all New Zealand.
Thanks for your support Ladies!
xx - Maria.
