Bree is a designer, artist, reproductive advocate, and environmental feminist. Bree would never have predicted she would own and run her own brand, let alone a foot in the fashion industry. However, after her studies and work as a Doula, yoga teacher and Mayan Abdominal Massage Therapist her path led her to more than touching, healing and working with the body. Creating eco-lux intimate wear has not just become her business, but her passion. Bree’s affinity to ancient healing wisdom and learning from cultural traditions has come together to provide a unique and sacred offering.
Tell us a little bit about your vision and what you offer:
Lekūna Intimate is an eco-friendly intimates label that provides for both your body and the planet while redefining sexy through comfort and sustainability. Intention goes into our designs and production to maximize benefits for the body, like using naturally antimicrobial bamboo fabric and plant based dyes. Check out our OG design; Secret Garden Panties; high waist pocketed panties that come with a heatable herbal pouch to bring relief and comfort to reproductive organs during tender times. Beyond offering things to put on your body, Lekūna is embodying a lifestyle of inclusivity, body positivity, and love to mama earth.
What is the most important thing you want others to know about you and your brand?
I think it’s important to remember everyone has a story. And sometimes stories get told in the way of creation. I hope people can discover that Lekuna was born out of my own story of a traumatic time in my life which fueled my creative process and has been a part of my healing.
What inspires you the most when creating?
I am the most inspired when I am working with natural dyes. Seeing color birthed from the earth to be made into textiles is something special. I connect to my higher self communing with nature, and from this place, I receive downloads for new ideas.
Where is Lekuna Intimates headed next?
Lekūna has intentions to remain a small sustainable brand. We are excited to keep serving our loyal customers and bring out new small-batch releases that are in tune with the seasons to ensure we are not overproducing yet still providing folks with safe and beautiful intimate wear.
What piece of advice would you give those just starting out in your field?
Be really clear with your WHY. We live in a time where there is so much to consume. Ask yourself how your vision can make a positive impact. When doubt creeps in, you can always come back to your WHY, because intention is powerful and your guiding force.
Name one song or band that embodies your brand:
