the founder

✿ hello ✿

JUNK LDN is a colourful, sustainable swimwear brand founded by me, Celia Harper. 

I design all the beachwear myself in my Brighton flat, and then work with one of the best factories in Bali to bring the pieces to life.

No planet-damaging fabrics are involved in my manufacturing process and all of my workers are paid three times the national average.

Every style I make is eco-friendly and ultra flattering.

✿ my story ✿

I spent most of my 20s travelling South East Asia, where I worked in little bars on Cambodian beaches. As amazing as it was to be living in a bikini for months at a time, I began to see first-hand the effects of plastic waste on the ocean. I also couldn’t help but feel the fast fashion brands I was buying my bikinis from were damaging the nature I loved so much.

So I decided to start my own swimwear brand. One that was ethical and planet friendly, but still colourful and tons of fun. 

After all my time spent in Asia, being able to support a developing country was close to my heart. After visiting Bali a few times, I found the perfect factory just outside of Seminyak Beach. 

They treated their workers amazingly well and specialized in Italian ECONYL® and REPREVE® fabrics made from recycled bottles and fishing nets.

Together, we create playful beachwear that doesn’t harm the planet.

So you can swim, sunbathe and shop guilt-free.
