Supporting you to express your truest self
In everything we do we build a society where you can be yourself, express your creativity freely, love anyone, be straight or gay, black or white, big or small, young and old, man and woman.
The freedom of self-expression and self-realization lies within Puka Wear’s identity and you were born to be your color and do your thing.
Be your color. Always.
Why a fair production is important
As a part of the clothing industry, we think it is of utter importance to take an environmental and social responsibility, which is why we always strive to disregard plastic and produce our garments in as much organic materials as possible. When this is not possible we will always look for a production with as much recycled material as possible. With our collaborating partner and producer, we have worked on location in Portugal to create leggings that are stretchy, soft, and conscious in choices of material. Our clothes are proudly made in northern Portugal from certified organic cotton.
My name is Maya Santimano and today I stand firmly on the ground and feel the strength from within, expressing what is me. But it was not always easy.
My life is not much different from yours. I followed the path that I thought was expected of me and I continued walking, never really asking why.
Within me lie the cultures of Sweden, Mozambique, and India. In my heart I feel the deep, thick forests of Sweden, I dance to the rhythms of Mozambique, and I chant to the Indian prayers.
With the profound power that lies within the practice of yoga, I started to become aware of my thoughts and of myself. On the yoga mat we take a closer look at ourselves, we see patterns and become conscious of how we behave. From the first day I stood on the yoga mat, everything was changed and I started walking a new path in life. My path, my truth.
The practice of yoga has become a practice of being me. It has turned my world upside down, and then up again into the sky. It has led me to my own path in life, which today has become Puka Wear.
I want to be there, supporting all of you to do the same. Life might be a rollercoaster of emotions, but you will always have that stable, calm feeling in your stomach knowing that it is all part of the plan.
When you wear our leggings you will feel empowered, and feel the energy rushing from deep down inside of you. You are amazing!
