Dear friends! 

After years of trying to find a bathing suit, season after season, that best fit my ever changing body type and years of frustration altering my own suits, I finally did the unthinkable, creating one of the hardest garments in the world to design and produce.

Fit as well as fabric was important to me. I wanted the most luxurious and comfortable fabric that would feel like a second skin. I wanted fabric that did not lose its shape, retained brilliant colours as much as possible and avoided ‘pilling’, (those annoying fabric balls and fraying). Only the best Italian fabrics provided me with this patented technology (chlorine resistance, sun block, quick drying capabilities, no pilling, and shape retention).

Finally craftsmanship; understanding ease and tension, patterns on our bodies, and the behavior of fabrics is critical for our suits to be able to celebrate our unique body architectures. Each bathing suit is hand sewn in California, which is the capital of the world for swimwear construction. These artisans are exceptionally detailed wonderful people. I enjoy working closely with all members of the ISK-KA team to help bring my simple vision to life for you, creating timeless, classic swimwear pieces that fit well and feel luxurious on.

To my husband, family and amazing friends who have invested their time and creative expertise to help me build and create ISK-KA swimwear designs, or who simply said "not a doubt in my mind", I am forever grateful.

I hope you feel extraordinary in ISK-KA swimwear, because you are extraordinary.
