KaiKini Bikinis' Profile

About

Ocean + Bikini = KaiKini

KaiKinis are a collection of swimsuits inspired by the island lifestyle of Kauai.

Bright, bold prints, flattering cuts and high quality manufacturing make for the perfect bikini. They are comfortable enough to wear all day, day after day, made possible by the fast drying, anti microbial liner sewn into every suit. KaiKinis are ideal for surfers, paddlers and beach bunnies alike. I've taken the best parts of the traditional brazilian style and mixed them with durability and one of a kind designs to create what I call, the Hawaiian fit. Sexy, flirty, fun styles handmade in small batches right on the island that inspired them.

A bit about me...
After seven years of of living on Kauai, I realized my obsession with bikinis and beaches was never going to end. But it was actually my husband, Tyler that opened my mind to the idea of making my own. Having never sewn a day in my life, at first I thought his idea was absurd! I realized I wanted to be in the bikini business but had no idea how to make them so I tried to buy a local bikini company that was about to leave island. The attempt failed. Heartbroken, but now more determined than ever, I decided that I was going to figure out a way to manufacture bikinis despite the fact I wouldn’t have anyone to teach me how. So I took a leap of faith: spent my savings on industrial sewing machines, materials and thread and taught myself how to sew. After eight incredibly frustrating months of trial and error I finally started to make bikinis I could be proud of. Four months later, my KaiKini’s were in multiple stores all over Kauai and they were being sold faster than I could sew them.

I hope you enjoy my KaiKini bikinis as much as I enjoy designing and making them!
