Pieces of art that conquer the world
An illusion that was born in 2014 by the hand of Raffaella and Stefano, two innovative SIBLINGs who shared a dream: to create a brand with purpose, self-sustainability and that delivers the highest quality to Peruvian women. The dream came true: it crossed our borders, reaching markets in LATAM, the US, Europe and Asia, to lead the swimwear market.

Get to know the Capittanas that inspire us:
I really value the possibility of working and having my family close, so I can take advantage of my time and share moments with them. The support that Capittana gives me to raise my family motivates me to continue working. I love all their products.”
It makes me happy that I can have time for my children and work here at Capittana. I like to see the final work in photos and also in the clients. My favorite pieces are the one-pieces with crochet details.
Working with Capittana allows me to do what I enjoy without leaving aside my duties with my family. I like the value of the products with all the handmade details.
I like to work in confection. It motivates me to see that my pieces are being used by different people in the world. I love how the one-pieces look and the details that give it value, like crochet.
You carry more than a swimsuit with you; you carry the effort, art and passion from one Capittana to another, in each piece.
