ASUYAMA was born out of passion to create functional, beautiful, high-quality swimsuits inspired by the relaxed beach life in California mixed with Scandinavian minimalistic design.
ASUYAMA swim is designed for people who appreciate quality, environmentally friendly materials and a perfect fit. Most our suits can be worn different ways to create multiple looks in one bikini. We want to make swimwear that's timeless, yet trendy and will last with you for summers to come!
Our key values are eco-friendliness, high quality both in design and in the materials we use. Our swimwear is made from sustainable fabric, Econyl. Luxurious Italian fabric made entirely from pre -and post- consumer waste like discarded plastic and fishing nets.
As ocean lovers - we produce at a manufacturer where percentage of each bikini goes to the R.O.L.E foundation to help to clean our oceans.
Meet ASUYAMA’s designer
ASUYAMA's founder, a Finnish designer Tiina Asujamaa, made fashion a career already at the age of 22 when she opened her own clothing store in Iso-Roba, Helsinki. However, she left the store behind and moved to California. In California Tiina studied fashion design at FCI Fashion School in downtown Los Angeles. Prior to studying, Asujamaa worked as a stylist in Los Angeles and gained insights into the world of fashion. Living both in Hermosa Beach and West Hollywood, she was inspired by the carefree and relaxed beach lifestyle she's always loved, mixed with a bit of city life - to have the best of both worlds. That’s how the idea of ASUYAMA came to life - " To create unique, fun and high quality swimwear and easy going clothing styles that works both in beach and city surroundings." The idea sharpened and took form and ASUYAMA was born.
"I had been creating a career in fashion for a long time in retail and in styling, but somehow I always knew that design is what I wanted to do. I did wonder if a Finn could design beachwear, but in the end it's all I was passionate about - the bikinis, traveling, seeing the world, the ocean. When creating ASUYAMA, everything kind of came together".
Today Tiina resides and designs in Helsinki but travels as much as possible for adventures and for inspiration and also splits her time between the places close to her heart including Bali and LA.
“I’m still a beach bum at heart. I love the sea and the carefree beach life. It inspires me to live my life to the fullest and I want to inspire other women to also follow their dreams, to be their beautiful selves and to do what they really enjoy!”
