Laya was born from the need for timeless swimwear, staples you could throw in your hand luggage no matter where you’re headed. Trusty pieces to complement whatever mood you’re in. The brand hopes to create swimwear you treasure and keep for years to come. Based between Cape Town, Los Angeles and the island of Mauritius, where all Laya pieces are handmade by local artisans, the beachwear brand has taken on a unique style of timeless sophistication with an edge. Taking inspiration from tropical surrounds and hedonistic settings, Laya aspires to create pieces that transport you to a time you never knew you needed.

Laya takes a slower approach to fashion, working to integrate core sustainable principles with high-quality materials without compromising on the look, quality and functionality of each piece resulting in swimwear that transcends time. Garments are manufactured with great care and quality Spanish fabrics, have an SPF of 50, are seamless and fully lined.
