Borrowing the name from the International Swimming Federation, also known as: FINA — the company, FINA was born. At its infancy, FINA wanted to create a product suitable for water mammals (and land mammals alike!), this united our concept of aquatic sports and functional design.
The product needed to be highly durable, breathable, and water resistant but also deliver on unique aesthetics — so the Strip-Mesh Vinyl Gym Bag was created.
Since then, FINA wanted to build on branding and think about the intention behind designing functional products. By looking further into the initial Brand name, it was realized that the ideals of FINA was to promote and celebrate aquatic sports on a global scale.
While remaining true to designing functional and unique products, FINA.CO is now borrowing those same ideals by designing functional products that also bring diverse cultural narratives.
The journey began with the Far East (China) — specifically in the city of Guangzhou. From that trip, the Wet Market Bag was introduced. This bag is made with Polypropylene Fabric — a fabric made out of recycled plastics. It is highly sourced in China and the material is used to make shopping bags for those who purchased fabrics at the Guangzhou Clothing, Garment & Textile Wholesale Market — arguably the worlds largest international fabric market.
In the future, FINA will further explore different cultures so each designed product will serve a function while delivering narratives from cultures in a timely, market-driven manner.
These bags are one-of-a-kind and they are currently made-to-order. If there are any inquiries, please connect and let's chat, it would be great to hear from you!
