After years of not being able to find a functional and stylish swimsuit to wear while surfing, Emily Neal decided to create her own swimwear line. While nursing her newborn son, her first designs were created. Emily knew early on that following her passion and being present for her family would mean finding the perfect balance. Lōkahi means to obtain oneness, unity, and harmony.
Lokahi Swimwear is a collection of swimwear and clothing inspired by her love for her home, the Sunshine Coast, QLD Australia and the raw beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. The first swimwear collection launched in 2017. Lokahi Swimwear is known for its exclusive, hand drawn prints, the vibrant colors and buttery soft fabric.
Emily and her mother, Vivien, built the brand from the ground up in her living room while watching her children play. It is important to Emily to make as little of a footprint on our planet as we can, so sustainability and ethical manufacturing are top priorities. Emily has traveled to Bali, to meet our manufacturer as well as instated compostable packaging materials.
