Our Story

 
 
 
. 
 
 You know how it is... You’re enjoying a great family holiday, your children happen to recognise one of their friends from nursery, and suddenly as parents, you’re chatting around the pool about a shared love of travel, family life, and the need to dress your kids in sun-protective swimwear
 
It was then we realised that we shared a mutual frustration at the lack of stylish UV protective swimwear out there. Swimwear that protects your kids without any compromise on design. Then the Sunuva idea was born – a lifestyle brand focused around travel with gorgeous swimwear for kids and lovely cotton beachwear that style-conscious parents will adore and cool kids will love to wear. With coordinating styles so that siblings can match, beautifully designed rash vests and swimwear with a focus on design and sun protection. 
 

 

 Thanks to our children, that’s how it all began, on a family holiday back in 2007

Since launching nearly 15 years ago, Sunuva has established itself as an international fashion, lifestyle, and travel brand. Initially beginning with a small collection that got snapped up immediately by Harrods who we have been working with ever since. We’re very proud to see our collections featured in prestigious department stores and websites including Selfridges, Childrensalon, and Next. As well as independent boutiques and luxury international resorts around the world such as Carlisle Bay Antigua, Four Seasons Hampshire, Four Seasons Mauritius and Marbella Beach Club. 

                                 

Being as passionate as we are about Sunuva means we’re always developing our range, and today the collection features gorgeous dresses, kaftans, and playsuits for girls, as well as cool linens and t-shirts for boys. Working with the same suppliers and factories since the beginning, we have grown together and become a family. 

Design is important to us too and working with our in-house team in the heart of London we create a unique new collection of prints every season, inspired by our favourite destinations and our most memorable travel journeys. With embellishments and embroidery being hand-made with love and always finished with our signature Sunuva splash of neon, tassels, pom-poms, and ribbons.

 

Having been consistently featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Hello Magazine, and The Daily Mail we have created a loyal customer base and we’re also loved by celebrities and royals alike! Today we are a small team working fully remote, regularly bringing you brand new designs and prints. Our gorgeous collections feature Boys, Girls, Teens, Baby, and Adults with sun protection and stylish designs at the heart of what we do!  

Welcome to Sunuva –
we hope you love it as much as we do
