The brand-name Olmaia belongs to a special place in Tuscany, along the coast of Maremma where I first found the inspiration to create unique swimshorts of the highest quality. Olmaia is a place where the landscape dazzles the eyes from the beginning-from undulating hills to the cultivated patterns of vineyards of some of the world’s best wine-grapes to spectacularly wild, thick forests which slowly melt into dunes of sand, finally rippling into a beach moulded by the Mediterranean Sea: a clear, blue horizon speckled with distant Tuscan Islands.
The wish is to hand down and transmit this mood to wherever you’ll swim around the world.
I would like to thank some friends that helped and contributed to the development of the project: Carlitos Sanz, photographer who took care of the web-site’s background photos, Elena Luongo head of graphic department, Ester Castelnuovo who realized all the brochure illustrations.
All suppliers from packaging producers to the sewers for their precision, along with many others who supported the creation of Olmaia Swim Shorts.
