Makani Dream Swimwear

~another reason to love the beach~

Makani = Wind

Over the last few years, the world has seen the devastating impact of loosing jobs to companies overseas, and the over consumption of low quality, mass produced, machine-made products.  Every one of the pieces, by Makani Dream Swimwear, is handmade in Spain, and built to last.  Each suit is perfectly detailed, constructed from silky soft fabric, with beautiful prints and colors.  The fabric is purchased in Europe, and the notions are sourced in the United States, Canada, Spain, Italy, France, and Germany.  Makani Dream Swimwear is ideal for surfing, kitesurfing, stand-up padding, swimming, wakeboarding, water skiing, beach volleyball, beach yoga, snorkeling, diving, or simply soaking up the sun.  Inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us, as well as different cultures, the pieces are a mix of the traditional Brazilian fit, Hawaiian sporty vibe, and the low-cut European bikini.  Stephanie is fortunate to have an incredible team of individuals, helping her on this journey.  Your purchase will be supporting a small business, with a handful of local employees.  Makani Dream Swimwear is 100%, sweatshop-free.

After completing her training as a Geologist, in Canada, Stephanie began pursuing her love for nature, by working as an Environmental Engineer.  Year after year, seeing the incredible destruction and devastation humans have on the Earth, continued to fuel her dreams of living a simpler and more sustainable life.  Around the same time, she began kitesurfing (using the wind, and a kite, to surf), and became fascinated by the power of nature.  Through kitesurfing, she met many amazing individuals from around the world, who shared her love for the ocean, traveling, and following dreams.  Stephanie became so inspired, being surrounded by positive people, that she was determined not to let the fear of failure and judgement, stand in the way of making her dreams a reality.  She made arrangements, with the company she worked for, to allow her to work from her computer at home.  This would enable her to continue to have a positive influence on the environment, while having the opportunity to live in different countries.  After travelling around the world, she settled in Spain, and often goes back to her home in Canada, to visit family and friends.

Stephanie hopes to develop as a designer, and see Makani Dream Swimwear thrive, so she can continue to inspire the fun, sporty, and confident girl to live her own dreams.
