The Family


TA-BOU beachwear encompasses the traditional and classic „family-owned“ type of company. Founder Gianni De Nicola combined his visionary skills with Ingrid De Nicola-Haverkate’s creative designs and engineer-like accuracy, in order to create a revolutionary brand of state-of-the-art beachwear.

The tradition lives on as their son Diego and daughter Valeria De Nicola take over the operating side TA-BOU beachwear. Diego pursued his studies in Economics and Philosophy, and has been active in the company for almost 10 years, and Valeria completed the same prestigious design academy in Milan and Paris, as her mom Ingrid. The combination of young blood, modern and forward thinking, along with experience and tradition is what makes up the philosophy of TA-BOU beachwear.

The “family-feeling” is at the same time one of the highest goals that we as a company continuously strive for within our business. Our over 50 employees, mainly in Switzerland and our own production in Italy, all share the passion and love for this unique, fragile and extremely important item of clothing.
