Hey mermaid

Bombay Mermaid Trading Co. = Festival style & jet set jewels for free spirits, mermaids, and boho babes. Curated vintage and handmade jewelry, clothing, and accessories.

Inspired by the world, handmade & curated in Brooklyn: Bombay Mermaid Trading Co. is for the ultimate urban mermaid, the treasure-hunting party animal, the ultra-creative lover of life. We are a shimmering wardrobe of pretty clothes and body decor both made by hand and curated with life’s most festive moments in mind, infusing global style at every seam.

Our original designs are handmade in Brooklyn with materials from around the world: salvaged vintage trims, brilliant textiles, and waves of inspiration… as well as materials sourced right here in NYC’s garment district. Everything is one of a kind.

Our vintage is sourced, rescued, and revived. We find it in markets and bazaars wherever we roam. Silk scarves, beaded pendants, swirling skirts and romantic jewels are some of our favorite treasures to offer. Each piece is hand picked for its charm and irresistible appeal.

Got a dinner date in Shangri-La? Spending all day at the beach (and all night dancing with your girls)? Planning your playa wardrobe for Burning Man? Simply living life to the fullest? We’ve got something just for you…

Bombay Mermaid is currently featured on Threaded Vibes! Read up on how you can work our pieces into your 2014 festival wardrobe. Thanks to Courtney for showing us some love:

“Everything within the Bombay Mermaid’s Etsy store is full of life and color! From the jewelry that she hand makes in Brooklyn, NY to the vintage pieces she has found, none of it lacks uniqueness or beauty. Recently I have been attracted to Indian influenced fashion (especially accessories), so finding Bombay Mermaid was like hitting the jackpot. And although I’m obsessed with everything in her store I’d have to say that my festival favorites are the vintage bindis from India, rhinestone pendant necklace, and Bollywood head chains.”
