Our Beautiful Jamaican Swimwear May 31 2015
As a child growing up in the country, one of my adored pastime was swimming. And with easy access to the waters, this quickly became a regular activity for the entire family.
The common attire to go swimming has always been shorts and tee shirts.
Both male and female would see this as their first option of swimwear. But, as time passed on, the swimwear attire changed. As with everything else, we put our own stamp on it and make it our own.
Hence, Bashmentauthority.com wanted to showcase Jamaican Swimwear!- depicting the culture and personality of the Jamaican people- yes even in our clothes. They are manufactured both locally and abroad and are designed with vibrant colours and exotic designs. Cotton, polyester and spandex are a popular combination in these creations.
The most loved are ones in Reggae or Rastafarian Colors of red, green and gold, and the Jamaican Flag Colors of black, green and gold.
Perhaps the most famous ones are the crotchet swimwear. Crotchet is and artistic, fun pastime which requires a keen eye for detail, a creative mind and patience. Crotchet is needlepoint hence, this type is handmade and takes hours but we still make them with perfection.
These are made in many colors including white, red, bamboo, khaki and the red, green and gold combination.
For women, there are string bikinis in the color of the Jamaican Flag on both top and bottom made of nylon and lycra allowing it to stretch to fit. This is suitable for us who want to show our Jamaican pride even when going to the beach.
There are halter topped two-piece bikinis in floral and tying at the nape of the neck. There are boy-shorts bikini bottoms with a draw-string waist with lining and this is worn with a stylish top of your choice.
For men, there are polyester draw-string knee length shorts in festive colors and designs. They allow the wearer to adjust to fit. There are also shorts with piping down the sides and horizontally across the rear. There are shorts depicting the feel of the Caribbean with large prints showing Bob Marley photos, palm trees and bright Rastafarian colors.

BOB MARLEY AND BILLABONG! February 28 2014
The Billabong X Bob Marley Collection Is A Collaboration Committed To Organic Earth Friendly Products
Irvine, CA., – Bashment Authority is proud to announce The Billabong X Bob Marley Collection; a collaboration with Marley & Co. Why did we collaborate with Marley & Co? Because we believe in Bob Marley’s vision of “one world, one love.”
“I love it! The collection is cool and conscious,” said Ziggy Marley, when asked about his feeling on the environmental sensitivity Billabong has taken care to use in The Billabong X Bob Marley Collection.
“Hanging on the beach after a surf, listening to Reggae is part of the surfing culture no matter where you are in the world,” said Graham Stapelberg, VP of Marketing at Billabong USA. “Bob Marley’s music is timeless – and a natural fit for Billabong.” His songs fuse social awareness, irresistible reggae beat and cultural relevance into a celebration of life embraced universally.
Billabong is committed to the development of earth-friendly, innovative products that adhere to the Marley family’s core values: Equality, authenticity, and sustainability. Or as Bob might put it: “Make way for the positive day.”
“Working with the Marley family to interpret their vision of their father on to our garments has been inspiring,” notes Billabong Design Director Rob McCarty. “Cedella and Ziggy have provided great insight to make this collaboration a success.”
Consisting of boardshorts, tee shirts, tank tops, and selected accessories, the line reflects the energy, passion and fun that infused Marley’s life.
The Billabong X Bob Marley collection is made using premium recycled and organic materials, supporting environmentally safe products. This means less pollution, with superior quality, function and performance. The collection will be marketed in selected Billabong stores and online at bashmentauthority.com
