Founded in 1962, the brand name Havaianas was born from the Portuguese word for 'Hawaiians' and is based on a traditional Japanese sandal design called a 'Zori'. The brand's exponential growth secured them nationwide popularity and by the mid 90s they were being worn by people from all backgrounds in Brazil, including the rich and famous!
The decade proved to be huge for Havaianas; their range exploded with colour & design and was the start of how the brand looks today. The 1998 World Cup birthed the concept of the Brazilian flag on their products, and for the first time they were worn by supermodels on the runways of luxury fashion shows. Before long they were an international household name being sold in over 60 countries worldwide.
