pītusa was created with the goal of providing high quality, flattering apparel that’s colorful, comfortable, and evokes happiness. Inspired by founder and CEO Clara Lago Rashidian’s travels around the world, pītusa places an emphasis on color and luxurious fabrics, such as pima cotton from Peru and lightweight gauze cottons from India. With no outside investment, Rashidian has grown the brand to one of global recognition since its inception in 2010. pītusa has since found a place in the world’s leading retailers such as Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Shopbop, Revolve, Selfridges, Brown’s, Fenwick, El Corte Ingles, Harvey Nichols (Dubai), and specialty boutiques worldwide. In the United States, pītusa has a flagship store in Miami, Florida (Wynwood neighborhood), and most recently opened three international stores in Ibiza, Spain, Mykonos, Greece and Tulum, Mexico.
