Our History

We need to travel all the way to Japan to discover the roots of the name Yamamay. Here, enclosed in its ethereal beauty, shines a cocoon characterised by silver and crystalline reflections. Until its timid sparkle turns into magnificent wings and its green body is ready to take flight and enchant the world with its centuries-old beauty. Its name is Bombix Yamamay.

Today – as, we have been doing for more than 20 years now – we plan, design and develop collections of underwear to dress all types of women and ensure their well-being. The passion and love for what we do have allowed us to become a brand appreciated and loved by consumers all over the world.
