You can still surprise yourself

After seven years of of living on Kauai, I realized my obsession with bikinis and beaches was never going to end. I bought a new kini almost every week...but was constantly frustrated by the quality. They'd start to fall apart after only wearing them a few times! So my husband Tyler suggested making my own. Having never sewn a day in my life, I thought his idea was absurd but it did make me realize I wanted to be in the bikini business. I had no idea where to start so when a local bikini biz went up for sale I jumped at the chance to buy it. In the end, the owner changed his mind and decided not to sell. Heartbroken, but now more determined than ever, I decided 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 life 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!

Aloha from the island of Kauai...

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. We’ve taken the best parts of the traditional brazilian fit and mixed them with durability and one of a kind designs to create what we call, the Hawaiian fit. Sexy, flirty, fun styles handmade in small batches right on the island that inspired them.

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