Ayla Swim Print StoriesOur prints are inspired by meaningful places and experiences from our lives. Each print is created bespoke for Ayla, using hand-painted water colours by Eleni Malami.

The Coral Collection

Sustainability has always been important to us, and we wanted to bring this life by celebrating the world’s coral reefs in our latest collection. We are constantly inspired by their explosive colour, flawless architecture and biological diversity – that’s why preventing their endangerment is a cause we care so much about.


For all the pieces in this collection, we will donate 1% of profits to Coral Guardian, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the regeneration of reefs around the world. For more information please visit their website

The Taisho Collection

We began with Heidi’s Japanese heritage as a source of inspiration for this collection and found ourselves exploring The Taisho period, when Japanese culture became influenced by Western art and design. During this era, Women's Kimonos featured striking combinations of prints to reflect the confidence and optimism of the time. We used the kimonos and Japanese symbols, like the Red Crowned Crane, as a starting point for these designs.

The Calypso Collection

The Calypso collection was inspired by Trinidad  – a rugged Caribbean island, known for its rainforest, banana flowers and infamous carnival parade. Once a year the whole country comes together to celebrate and shows the rest of the world how to party. We have had some of our best times together dressed up in brightly coloured costumes for Carnival so we chose to capture those memories in the prints for our first collection.
