NEW COLLECTION SUMMER 2021
Creativity for me is the way that I can express myself. Sometimes it is difficult to find the time for it, especially when you work hard to pay your bills, but it is not impossible if you really want to. I really enjoy projects: trim and stitch a new bikini, design a new fabric. It is in the creative process that I can be really myself, where I can challenge, explore and make mistakes. Making a bikini for me is not to make a product for the happiness of others. It makes me happy. It is a process that starts from my heart and goes directly to my mind. It is like when we plant a seed, it will bloom naturally in springtime. It requires time, passion, love and practice. It is when I look at all the single pieces I made that I realise I was seeking love, happiness and joy outside, when all of these treasures were already a part of me. So I really hope that you will sense all the love I put in every little detail. I wish you can feel the joy in all the patterns I made, and you will see the happiness in all coloured fabrics I chose for this collection.

Why you should choose Ucan Designs?
With my designs I don’t want only create a product, I also want to deliver the message that is important to create with consciousness, having the courage to approach things differently in order to respect our enviroment and make it a better place, by disrupting the fashion industry’s still non-sustainable, non-ethical standards. Ucan is a sustainable brand, all the fabrics are printed in UK, this help to keep the carbon footprint low, using a water-free manufacturing and printing process with inks that are eco-friendly.
All the designs are Original and Unique made with high quality materials and a deep passion for details. If you buy Ucan’s creations on Ebay website, 10% of the sale of your purchase will benefit CHOOSE LOVE a refugee charity with minimal overheads and maximum impact.
It’s near impossible to be 100% sustainable 100% of the time, but every little helps! I finally managed to buy a piece of regenerated nylon ECONYL® to create a bikini.
An Italian Company have invented a way of converting discarded fishing nets into a high performance fabric which has exactly the same quality of virgin nylon. Is still rare to find it online, at the moment this fabric is available only for big brand, but it’s a start and I’m very glad that fashion industry is becoming aware of our global waste and plastic pollution crises by recycling materials through this kinds of innovative techniques.
My designs are inspired by my background, what I experienced growing up in a beautiful island, my love for the sea and for surfing, considered not just as a sport but as a style of life. U-Can Design speak to those who love freedom and nature with a touch of Hawaiian style, those who dream of beautiful sea and look for the next chance to ride the perfect wave, the brave ones and those ready for the next adventure.
U-Can is a word-pun that comes from my last name. As a self-taught designer, I wanted to create something for people like me and to bring them the message that it is possible to cultivate your passions despite your financial,geographical or physical circumstances.
My own name was there to inspire me: Canu…Can U…U Can! You can choose the pattern and create the item that you like and it will made and delivered to you.
You can also contact me for your special requirements or customize surfaces, your bikini, flip flops,
mat bag and many more….U decide!
