Description

A purple coloured, silicone swimma cap in afro-regular size, designed to fit long braids and dreadlocks. Swimma was founded in 2016 by Nomvuyo Treffers who is based in Cape Town, South Africa. She was frustrated by swimming caps that would not fit her daughter's hair so decided to start making her own, designed specificially for diverse hair types and volume hairstyles. Beginning with two sizes in 2016, there are now seven available to buy in order to be as inclusive as possible, with shower caps and goggles added to the range. Rejecting the notion that 'one size fits all', the small business serving local markets quickly became a global company through international demand. Sold in a reusable ziplock bag, the cap is compression moulded.
