ATABEY BOTTOM BIJA
about Atabey Bija
Inspired by Atabey, the Taíno goddess of fertility and fresh water. The Taíno practiced rituals of song and dance (areítos), to celebrate their gods and their ancestors. Atabey was one of the most important gods in the Taíno society. This bikini is inspired by the idea of fertility, abundance, celebration and beauty.
Bija is a red seed the Taínos used as sunscreen and presumably, make up. They used the word to refer to red. This strong and stunning red is the perfect color to exemplify their passionate and romantic view of the world.
