Mamiye, founded in 1947, produces and markets apparel brands for babies, children, juniors, young women and women. Its portfolio includes such brands as Scotch & Soda, C&C California, Habitual, Kensie Jeans and Little Me.

Carissa Moore, five-time World Surfing Champion and Olympic Gold medalist, will work with the Mamiye team to support the Hurley brand, designing and acting as a consultant to add authenticity to the women’s side of the business. Moore’s collection for Hurley launched in the summer of 2021, with swim only at the time.

“I am super excited about the opportunity to work closely with the new women’s sportswear and activewear licensee Mamiye on creating some pieces beyond swim. Outside of the water, I’m constantly on the go and need gear that will keep up. From training to running errands, catching up with friends, walking the dogs or date night with my hubby, I’m looking forward to collaborating with the team to make something fun and functional for every occasion,” said Moore, who has been collaborating on a collection for several seasons.

Nathan Mamiye, executive vice president of Mamiye Brothers, said, “We are honored to embark on this exciting journey with Hurley Womenswear, a brand network whose energy, people and culture are truly inspiring. The addition of Hurley to Mamiye’s portfolio of brands not only complements our current business but also opens new avenues for growth and innovation in womenswear.”

We are confident, given their keen eye for fashion and function, that Mamiye Brothers is the right partner to elevate the women’s category and contribute to the continued success of the Hurley brand.”
