The Story of Savage Swim

Savage Swim is your ultimate grassroots, homegrown, eco friendly, independently owned and operated, self-made brand. We do things different here. Everything that you order from us, from our custom bikinis / swimwear to our activewear and apparel, is hand crafted in-house, from start to finish, at our headquarters in St Augustine Beach Florida.

 

Savage Swim was founded by single mama of four babies, Beth Reeb, in April of 2014. She started this vision in her one-car garage, struggling with pennies in her bank, in a house facing foreclosure. With only a dream, no loans, investors or partners, she built the brand organically. She bounced the workroom around from three little garages over the course of the first year, reinvesting everything back into the business. In February 2015 she snagged a commercial building to turn into the Savage HQ workroom and showroom. It was a 1500 sq ft Jiffy Lube mechanic shop with no A/C, only six bay doors to open every morning for fresh air. A month was spent remodeling it into our landmark shop that was wrapped in huge images of women and athletes in our swimwear. After a few seasons and quick growth, Savage Swim outgrew the space. Under two years after that remodel, we now have a 4000 sq foot showroom/workroom in St Augustine Beach Florida, with room to expand as we continue to build this vision and brand.

We are independently owned by Beth. Self-made, and organically grown and built, our goal is to make custom bikinis and swimwear in a sustainable, eco friendly and ethical fashion. All of our fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets pulled from the sea. We are family run, with just enough team members to keep up with the demand. We have a team of awesome women, from greeting/helping in the showroom, to printing and hand cutting orders, to our skilled seamstresses and makers that produce each and every order for you, one piece at a time, to our final stage of quality inspection and then shipping it to your doorstep.

We put love, passion, and pride of quality into every single stage here. With raw marketing, great customer service, website design, as well as the overall production and building of your custom bikinis, swimsuits, and activewear, we produce lasting, quality products, and always strive to be better.

Beth Reeb Owner / Designer / CEO of Savage Swim & American Boheme | Ethically responsible fashions made in America
Howdy! Beth Reeb here, Owner/Designer/CEO, 
This is my Family and my driving force behind Savage Swim. I have resided in north east Florida for the last 24 years, lived on the water my whole life, and have always had an infinite love for the outdoors, adventure, traveling and the ocean. 
 I have a background in interior design (3rd generation) and have been sewing interior design projects from age 13. Although self taught in the clothing and swimsuit industry, it comes natural, and is a passion of mine to design and create, and to help others shine in their own skin. Nothing quite like a perfect fitting custom swimsuit to make you feel confident and alive on those gorgeous sunny days. We live life for the outdoors, and are here to help you do the same, in style, comfort, and confidence! Own the skin you're in.
