Nicolas Tsilivis Katsorchis founded Galileia in the downtown district of Sao Paulo in 1967. It began as a family operated shop selling mostly women’s clothing. It wasn’t until 1991, when his son, Tsilivis Nicolas Katsorchis, recognized an opportunity to focus on designing and producing bikinis. He noticed demand for Brazilian swimwear was growing globally. That decision led to registering the Mar Egeu Swimwear brand which is recognized as one of Brazil’s leading export swimwear brands. Today, the team consists of dedicated designers, seamstresses, cutters, and a charismatic shop manager by the name of Sanda Lima.
