Our Story

 

Maoi is a woman-owned business. We ( Mahina and Julia) own and operate Maoi. We are two mixed women from Hawai’i and Brazil. As ocean women, we have created for you an eco-conscious, sustainable swimwear line for women of all shapes, sizes, and colors.

Maoi is a proper combination of our love for the ocean and fashion industry. Julia grew up in Brazil and Mahina in Hawai’i. 

We both want to be a part of the change within the fashion world’s stereotype. We want to prove that fashion can also be inclusive.

Maoi’s mission is to provide sustainable, empowering swimwear for an accessible price and through our social media channels we want to educate our public on environmental issues and projects.

Our products are made entirely of sustainable materials. We thought about everything - from production to our shipping bags and method. We also included a carbon emission reduction token on our website, and we will be supporting NGO’s which aid in ocean cleaning, coral restoration, and many more. Please check our page ''Sustainability/Ethics'' for more info.

At Maoi, we promise to always be honest with our consumers, to provide you with quality over quantity and to continue to get stronger with time, for we know there is always room for growth.

For our first and second collection we have hand-selected each of these models to confidently and graciously represent women of all sizes and ethnicity. 

 

With the heart of Hawaii and the soul of Brazil we bring to you Maoi Swim! 

 

Love, 

Mahina Florence and Julia Muniz
