Capittana
SHORT BIO
Capittana, spanish word for "Female Captain", is a sustainable life-style brand founded in Peru by Raffaella Raffo in 2014 that supports women empowerment. All of the products are hand-made by single mothers or women in high risk situations, to then pass on to peruvian artisans for the crochet details embedded in the garments. When you buy Capittana, you are not buying a product, you are buying a piece of art.

It started as a dream to become a leading swimwear brand that empowers women through fashion- forward, high-quality products handmade in Peru. Since then, Capittana has become the leader in the Peruvian swimwear industry and has global presence through its e- commerce and leading wholesalers.
With only 6 years in the market, Capittana sells over 15 thousand swimsuits per year, as well as resort-wear and accessories.

BEHIND THE BRAND
The word 'Capittana' means female captain, which represents a strong, confident, and independent woman who lives life with passion.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
All of our products represent sustainability and female empowerment. The fabrics are produced in a factory that recycles its water, uses solar panels for energy, and has tree plantations to neutralize its carbon output. Then, the garments are handcrafted by at-risk women and single mothers in Lima, Peru. These women are not just employees but partners of the brand. We strive to empower them by lifting them out of poverty, providing a stable income, and offering a safe, welcoming working environment. So, when you buy a Capittana item, you are not just buying a product. You are buying a piece of art and soul of these inspiring women.
