Interview with Lauren Carkhuff, Lagoa Swimwear

I was inspired to start Lagoa Swimwear while I was living in Brazil.  I spent two years abroad, traveling to all of the beautiful beaches and lagoas. I’ve always been nervous to leave my belongings unattended on the beach.  On one occasion, I went into the ocean for a minute and upon my return, my money and ID were stolen. I looked everywhere for a bikini with a pocket and came up empty handed, so I decided to come up with a solution.
