Keneilwe Mothoa was inspired to make the bikinis from her love of fashion and traveling, and she couldn’t find any affordable bikinis that looked nice and lavish while still being very basic in design.
On her first trip to Mozambique, she made herself a bikini not knowing that people were going respond so positively and show interest in the bikini, she started getting orders and as she got more orders, she was inspired to add more bikinis to the range and make it available online
Her and her boyfriend, Lu, came together and birthed the company Neimil.
‘Now we spend most of our weekends trying to build the brand, running around town trying to find the best and comfortable fabric. I weigh up options and find the best prices and Nei doing what she does best, designs more and better bikinis’- Lu
