We could tell you that ever since we watched our grandmother sitting at the sewing machine we have dreamed of nothing else but to found our own bikini label. But we are honest and transparent, not just with our products.
We are Jacky and Leo. Jacky was born in Sao Paulo and has lived in Switzerland since she was seven years old, but she remains true to her roots. They are reflected not only in her everyday life but also in the patterns and colors of our collections. She is just as familiar with the Brazilian beach culture as she is with the requirements of a good bikini or a sexy one-piece. The love for Brazil, her lively character and the search for a new challenge have motivated Jacky together with Leo to found Amana Beachwear. Leo was born and raised in Germany but feeling restless never let him stay in one place for a very long time. His travels, his work in hotels and as a flight attendant brought him to remote beaches and formed a desire for sun, beach and sea. Leo’s personality and style are also reflected in the selection of women’s swimwear: classic and playful are not mutually exclusive at Amana Beachwear. Since he sees himself rather out in the world than in the office, he took on this new challenge. Amana Beachwear has quickly become his heart project.
