Jalayimiya Swim creates country conscious swimwear to inspire visibility and admiration for the oldest continuing living culture in the world. These unique designs made for all bodies from all walks of life to encourage self love and body positivity.
Founder & Designer
My name is Brodie George and I’m a proud Walmajarri woman from Fitzroy Crossing in The Kimberley of Western Australia.
My Aboriginal name is Jalayimiya pronounced "jul-a-mia".
I spent my childhood surrounded by family, country and culture learning & using language.
Being very artistic from a young age the artwork of my desert mob has influenced the creations of my designs - a very distinct bright style with a modern adaption.
I'm country conscious living a lifestyle headed by low-tox and holistic living.
This is incorporated into my business - making conscious decisions around materials using recycled plastics where possible and made to order pieces to reduce landfill.
I believe as Aboriginal people we need to honour our ancestors practices and care for country by making conscious decisions in our everyday lives.
Celebration of Culture, Sustainability & Inclusion
Jalayimiya Swim created to minimise landfill by producing made to order garments.
Summer 2023/24 Jalayimiya Swim released three collections representing the Walmajarri seasonal calendar.
The calendar combines Walmajarri seasonal names with the Walmajarri people's knowledge of both desert and river country.
All swimwear showcases beautiful Aboriginal art painted by me Brodie George also known as Jalayimiya (my Walmajarri/Aboriginal name).
The collection includes eco-friendly selections with garments made from recycled materials such as plastic bottles into polyester.
Collection ranges from sizes 8 - 24 with mix'n'match options to cater for as many bodies as possible to represent everyday people.
Jalayimiya Swim is encouraged to be worn by everyone from all walks of life to inspire more visibility and admiration for the oldest continuing living culture in the world.
