‘Jimaguas’ means twins in Cuba. And that’s because we like to define Gimaguas not just a clothing brand, but as our personal story. We are Sayana and Claudia, two Spanish designers and twin sisters who like to travel the world in search of handcraft. The brand was born in 2016 while studying Fashion (Sayana) and Finance (Claudia) in London, naturally finding the perfect bounding.
Every collection brings together the things we find out there and really represents us. We also work our own designs hand in hand with artisans from around the globe: Jaipur, Madagascar or Mexico, among others. Despite the fact that Gimaguas is an online retailer worldwide, we like to give a more personal approach to every collection through pop-ups in Barcelona, Madrid, London or New York. This way we can present one-of-a-kind products and all the stories behind them.
Having already collaborated with NGOs at Senegal and Nepal to promote their local craftsmanship, we are also open to build new long-term relationships with social projects where artisans have an important role for change. The result is a continuous selection of unique goods that evoke our pleasure for summer, travelling, walking barefoot and collecting treasures from hidden paradises that never go out of style.
