Sauipe was created in 2008 by sisters Marcia and Anna. Born and raised in Brazil, they grew up enjoying sunny days by the pool and beautiful beaches all year long.
Anna had extensive expertise in apparel manufacturing within her family-owned factory. Marcia wanted to share the creativity and quality of Brazilian fashion with the world after she moved to California. Their common goal was to challenge the stereotype of Brazilian swimwear at the time, when most people associated Brazilian beachwear with tiny swimsuits and 'brazilian cut'.
Marcia and Anna envisioned a line with sophisticated, upscale, and timeless beachwear. And so Sauipe was born, with a curated selection of elegant silhouettes with a just a 'hint' of sexy.
Using buttery fabrics that caress your skin, and high quality craftsmanship, we are thrilled to bring you swimsuits that are loved for their great fit and comfort. A swimsuit that hugs your curves in all the right places and will become a staple in your summer wardrobe for years to come.
At a time when sustainability was not fashionable, Marcia and Anna focused on small-scale productions and minimizing the waste of resources in their factory. They collaborated with vendors that produced superior materials while following sustainable practices. The sisters believed that a swimsuit crafted using high-quality materials would last longer and offer a much superior fit.
The result is a collection of sleek and timeless designs that captivates the woman who values a blend of style, comfort, and quality.
