About me

Annabelle Baretta

I have been designing and making ladies' swimwear for more than 30 years.

I started here in North Devon, but the business really took off when I moved to Australia's Sunshine Coast in the 1980s. Several companies asked me to design for them, but I preferred a more personal approach - getting to know a customer, discussing ideas and patterns with her, and then designing and making something unique.

I moved back to North Devon with my family in 1999 and our home now is a couple of minutes' walk from the beach at Croyde. I continue to design and make swimwear, and still import most of my fabrics from Australia. They are specially treated so that the colours won't fade as quickly in a chlorinated pool.

I look forward to making some swimwear for you.
