Wahine, meaning “woman” or “surfing woman” in Polynesian and Maori, was launched in 1996 as a step into the surf market and soon became a popular brand in surf stores throughout Australia. Wahine was a huge success and one of the leaders in taking swimwear in new directions. With a separates range, reversible swimwear and Brazilian fits, Wahine has always been at the forefront of what is hot and continues to develop in innovative ways. Supporting local industry by continuing to manufacture most of the range locally in Sydney, this family-owned company cares and this can be seen in the quality of the swimwear.
The Wahine collection continues to display stylish separates and glamorous one pieces as well as its traditional surf-inspired bikinis. The Wahine brand offers a range of beautiful kaftans and classic board shorts to complement its swimwear range.
Wahine aims to create swimwear for every female form. We offer fun, bright and playful styles to suit the younger market and stylish, elegant and sophisticated pieces for everyone else. This is achieved by offering women specialised fits, flattering designs and distinctive styling highlighted by luxurious fabrics, exclusive prints and fashionable trims.
