Sister duo Helaina & Chloe
European Summers spent in the Balearics
Since we were young we spent Summers in Mallorca, a place in which we feel fulfilled and happy. Known for its idyllic beaches, nature spots and crystal clear seas we wanted to bring back this Summer nostalgia and create a brand – of course, it had to be Swimwear!
The Brand Name
“Tucca” is Helaina's childhood nickname and we always had it in mind for starting a clothing brand. We wanted a brand to tell our story and for you to share these memories with us to be a part of the lifestyle.
The Start of The Multiway Bikini
Having studied Textile Design and Photography at University, between us we are both very creative. We are always thinking outside of the box and this is where our vision started for our signature Multiway Bikini™. We aren’t just talking about a reversible style or a strap which can be multiway..we have created an interchangeable bikini top and bottom. This product is great as it takes multiway to the next level and allows you to have so many different looks with just one product, one purchase.
Each year we launch one Summer collection and continue to sell existing prints and colourways. Just because the season changes and the year, we do not feel the need to follow fashion standards. Swimwear is timeless.
We are proud partners with Aquafil, producer of the ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fish hets, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world. Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as fossil-based nylon and has the potential to be recycled infinitely without ever losing its quality.
The fabric is sourced from Italy and has improved resistance to saltwater, UV light and chlorine, making it last 3 months longer than normal swimwear fabrics.
All swimwear is made close to home in London and we are proud to support our economy. The team of manufacturers are small and has an ethical approach focussing on working with brands that have quality products which will last.
All packaging is recyclable or reusable. We launched the Tucca Tote to give you a reusable bag which is gifted with every order instead of having a throwaway bag, we are giving you something back to use, another step away from plastic.
We are working with various companies to create a circular production system. Our vision is to bring out a swimwear range made from our own fabric scraps and your used Tucca Swimwear which can be recycled over and over. It’s only a matter of time before the advances for this to become a reality
