The name, Hanya, is derived from its Indonesian word meaning ‘only’. Hanya's concept stands true to its meaning with our minimalistic, timeless apparel made thoughtfully and with great care. With our roots in Bali, Hanya’s simple and humble approach is reflected in our apparel inspired by the rich culture of the island. Focusing on the versatility of our products, we manufacture swimwear both for style and leisure. Our influence revolves around urban lifestyles effortless with romantic aura and timelessness.
Hanya’s signature colours consist of black, white, and nude. Our apparel is made for your comfort and is designed to feel as if you are wearing nothing at all. The founders have carefully designed collections that are unique, while maintaining their quality craftsmanship and artistic appeal. They ensure that their customers, manufacturers and even employees remain satisfied.
We’re not big on trends. We don’t do fast fashion. Our goal is for you to love and wear your Hanya for as long as it is possible.
We value each and every artisan that has helped us make our beautiful things. They are a very important part of who we are and what we do.
The fashion industry is notorious for poor working conditions and exploitation of the workers. Working closely with our partner manufacturer, Sew Happy Bali, we make sure that production quality and social welfare are held to the highest standard. This includes fair wages, reasonable hours and a healthy, humane work environment. Sew Happy Bali is certified by Qualspec Australia and is regularly audited to ensure that the quality, social and ethical expectations are constantly met.
We also strive to help improve the lives of people who work in our factory through our social responsibility initiative, Project 3%.
All of our garments are made right here in Bali and each piece is crafted with materials and processes that use the least amount of natural resources possible.
Our swimwear is made from rib fibre and recycled Italian Nylon. Recycled Italian Nylon is made using ECONYL® yarn, that is made by recovering nylon waste - such as fishing nets from the oceans and aquaculture, fabric scraps from mills and carpets destined for landfill – and turning it into virgin quality nylon yarn for the fashion and interior industries.
The end result is a fabric that is exactly the same as a brand new nylon, and it can still be recycled and remoulded again and again. It truly is fabric that embodies no waste and no new resources while remaining high performing, breathable, comfortable and heavily resistant to suntan creams, oils, and chlorine.
Our swimwear collection is complemented by organic cotton, tencel, and viscose based apparel that is produced in a sustainable manner. Our linen articles use the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp (CELC) certified linen. We also use environmentally friendly plant-based dye for some collection.
Furthermore, we aim to do the same with our packaging.
We partner with noissue.co for our tissue paper and packaging tape. By doing so we joined The Eco-Alliance, which is NoIssue’s is sustainable packaging coalition consisting of a community of businesses that have made the switch to circular packaging.
For every packaging order we place, they plant trees in areas in need of reforestation.
Which means that for every order placed at Hanya, you give a small contribution to reforestation and carbon reduction.
For our garment bag, we choose @avanieco, one of the global leading plastic-alternative producers. Our garment bags are now made of cassava starch which is a renewable source and contains zero petroleum-based components, so it won’t break down into microplastics.
The shipping boxes we use are by customboxid.com, and they are resusable, recyclable and is biodegradable within 2 months.
We use FSC certified paper hangtags and zero waste shopping bags in order to leave behind a minimal environmental footprint.
Hanya is committed to being a sustainable brand. And we want to push this ethos to every aspect of our business, and actively finding new ways to do so.
We want to do right by the people we work with, and do what we can for the planet.
Hanya pledges 3% of our sales to contribute to social/community initiatives and causes we feel passionate about. We call this our Project 3%.
- Looking Out for Each Other
We give back directly to our employees, in effort to help improve their quality of lives. We distribute cash bonuses, as well as basic food and daily essentials on a regular basis.
- Health is Wealth
We work with Blessed Charity Social (BCS), an organization that focuses on providing financial assistance for patients with cancer or other critical illnesses from low socio-economic backgrounds, helping them get access to medical care.
BCS also regularly deliver meals to orphanages and hospitals, to help both patients and the healthcare workers. They also visit various disadvantaged communities and distribute basic food essentials.
The foundation of Hanya was laid down by Ricca and Zivana who coincidentally stumbled upon each other in Bali, and soon their friendship bloomed. Meetings over coffee took place, and the idea of a fashion line took hold. The project began small, but quickly flourished to become a benchmark in the swimwear market.
With a wide breadth of experience of over 10 years, Ricca puts quality before anything. In 2016, Ricca felt the need to create a minimalist fashion line, however the idea could only properly take form when she met Zivana, a fashion enthusiast who nurtured Ricca’s concept. Zivana’s love for shopping has been her forte, and has provided her with the ability to easily understand customers’ wishes and perception. With this, she handles the line’s designing and marketing, while Ricca uses her skills of branding and production.
Echoing the beliefs of Hanya’s owners, the company strives to produce apparel in a sustainable manner with an effort to rejoice in the beauty of womanhood while taking care of our mother earth.
