Origin: from a childhood mispronunciation, in reference to ‘bathing suits.’ BĀBEN is a women’s swimwear and lifestyle brand with meaningful details and timeless style. The brand was founded from the desire to live in freedom - for the woman with wind in her hair. Established in 2021, by the mother-daughter duo, Tamara and Hanna Dorman, BĀBEN pushes the boundaries of its category with vintage-inspired bikinis and boardshorts. Designed and made locally in Los Angeles, pieces are crafted with nostalgia for the past, and the softest, most luxurious recycled fabrics. With bespoke prints, eclectic details, and classic silhouettes, BĀBEN is for the woman who stands out with elevated ease.
