Ethical & inclusive swimwear made in Puerto Rico for the sustainable and mindful shopper.
We produce high quality swimwear at an accessible price-point that is size inclusive, reversible, seamless and ethically manufactured. We offer our clients a variety of sizes ranging from XXS to XXL, and recently began including our first style for girls. We also produce cover-ups for women & girls in limited quantities.
Aragma is a greek slang word that relates to the small joys of life, and specifically to the all-time favorite activity of 'chilling'. For greeks 'aragma' takes place in houses with friends, but also in coffee places. However, in the summer, the home of aragma naturally becomes the beach. And beaches are all around the Puerto Rican coastline, therefore inspiring aragma and the pleasant relaxation in carefree idleness we all experience at the beach.
Given our brand's appreciation for nature and its resources, Aragma is committed to honor the environment by manufacturing its products in an environmentally conscious facility (depending 90% on solar energy and rainwater); sourcing high quality fabrics and materials from companies that share our green vision; and, by using recyclable or reusable materials in our tags and packaging. We also recycle and reuse our waste and textiles.
We work with imported Italian fabrics that are made up of 100% ECONYL®, a sustainable techno-fabric made from regenerated nylon which collects waste from fishing nets and plastic bottles; and uses LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber to ensure long-lasting fit & quality, while still allowing to significantly extend the life of each piece so you can enjoy it for seasons to come.
"We want our carbon footprint to be so small, it's like we weren't even here."

From a young age Adriana always felt her passions were polarized between the rational and the artistic. So after earning her BA in Psychology, she moved to New York City to study Fashion Design at Parsons School of Fashion. During her time Parsons she was offered the opportunity to travel to Italy and learn about manufacturing, high-volume production and sourcing of materials. Once graduated, she was invited to present her first collection in Puerto Rico, where she shared the runway with some of Puerto Rico's most celebrated designers. Although she decided to continue her studies and pursue a Doctoral Degree in Psychology, her unbridled creativity is channeled through design.
While studying, Adriana kept designing and creating custom evening wear and bridal couture. But soon her motivation to expand her work fueled the desire to focus on high volume production. Particularly inspired by her life in Puerto Rico and travels around the world, Adriana began the journey towards creating unique swimwear that is embraced by the chic, modern, and mindful woman. Always striving for success, Adriana aims to provide her customers with pieces that merge exquisite fabrics and unique designs with excellent workmanship; while, honoring the environment and nature, being size-inclusive and an environmentally conscious alternative to today's mindful consumer.
