Agua Bendita swimwear is company that started in Colombia in early 2003. The creators of the company are Catalina Álvarez and Mariana Hinestroza, who have been friends since the conception of the brand. Within the span of 7 years, Agua Bendita has become one of the fastest growing swimwear brands in the world, gaining notoriety amongst magazines and celebrities alike. The exclusivity of the designs and the quality of each piece has allowed the company to maintain consistent exposure in important magazines, runways, and retailers around the globe. Agua Bendita is a brand that will be changing the game and breaking barriers for many years to come. Check out some history on the designers and the brand itself.


Agua Bendita began when both Catalina and Mariana were still in school pursuing a major in fashion design at a renowned university in Colombia. It began as an inspired friendship and with the collective culmination of ideas and tastes rather than an initial business concept. But once the friendship thrived, so did the brand, and soon Agua Bendita was born.

During the last few years, Agua Bendita has been noted for giving an innovative and modern touch to its genuine Colombian garb. This innovations makes the pieces created more modern, progressive and eye-catching. The wild success of the company has been attributed to the combination of laser cutting detail design with high quality, imported products and materials, which have been the spear point of product development throughout the years.
Also an added bonus to the original designs are the handcrafts made by Colombian artisans, who with their experience, accompanied by the brand’s designers, have been able to create original hand-made pieces that give a more delicately intricate touch.

Most recently, Agua Bendita has launched their latest collections with the original idea of the “Bendita´s Girl”, a concept with which all women are “benditas” (blessed), beautiful, eye-catching, and famous. This concept wants to be expanded around the world. Most recently, the Bendita Girl for 2014 was none other than Kendall Jenner, of the Kardashian clan. Ms. Jenner effortlessly flaunts her style and long legs representing Agua Bendita in all of its beauty.
