ABOUT THE OWNERS

KAOHS Swim was born in 2013 when two girls, Tess Hamilton and Ali Hoffmann came together to curate a line of swimwear inspired by skate, boho and surf. Although, they had only met twice before starting KAOHS, they both had similar dreams and aspirations. They were zealous to launch a label that offered edge and functionality, all while showing a free spirited aesthetic. The high quality fabrics and seamless cuts were designed to compliment every shape of every woman. They really wanted KAOHS Swim to be the most perfect confidence boost when hitting the beach- or anywhere that calls for a good tan line!
All bikinis are made with true passion and care in Los Angeles, California.
