I’m Brigitte Lu, founder of Blu Handmade, born and raised in the small town of Huanuco, Peru.
I was raised by my grandmother who worked from home as an independent seamstress. Through my childhood, I witnessed and assisted her in sewing beautiful garnments, sometimes all night long. Her hard work and dedication inspired me throughout my life and career.
After moving to the United States when I was 18 years old, I worked in many fields and graduated in medicine field.
Through my exotic background and my drive for discovering the world and its natural resources I became passionate about creating a positive impact through the voice of my brand, keeping ethical and sustainable practices at the forefront of my mission.
Through difficult challenges, finally was born Blu Handmade, a creative brand that produces unique homemade crocheted swimwear, hand-crafted by women from my beloved country and others similar cultures.
My mission is to create the highest quality handmade products from eco-friendly, sustainable materials for all eco-conscious women, no matter their sizes.
