 Azi Hendi Luminora Founder

Azadeh (Azi) Hendi, a former attorney, is a fearless globetrotter with an obsession for all places sunny and a passion for design and fashion. As the wife of a distinguished skin cancer surgeon, Azi knows firsthand the perils of inadequate sun protection. Mother of two active boys, she spent many hours outdoors at the park and the beach with her family. Azi found that her active outdoor lifestyle was in conflict with science linking sun exposure to skin cancer, discoloration of the skin and premature aging. An advocate at heart, Azi merged her love for design, science and travel, and created a collection of comfortable, stylish, sun protective clothing that she could wear on the go or relaxing by the water. Azadeh, meaning “free spirit” in the ancient Persian language, set out to promote freedom for all women desiring a healthy lifestyle. LuminoraTM is a call to freedom. Freedom to seek, explore and experience life guilt and worry free. Freedom to want it all, without risking it all.


Dr. Hendi is a board certified dermatologist, fellowship trained Mohs surgeon, and renowned skin cancer specialist. After completing his training, he worked at the Mayo Clinic before establishing a state of the art skin cancer surgery center in the Washington DC area. He is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at Georgetown University where he teaches dermatology trainees. Having treated over 10,000 skin cancers and publishing over 20 scientific papers and a book (Atlas of Skin Cancers), he is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences. Furthermore, he is a skin cancer expert for the media. He has been interviewed for over 50 print, online and TV interviews, educating the public about sun safety and skin cancer awareness. Some of his interviews have been with Men’s Health, Family Circle, Women’s Health, US News & World Report, ABC Nightly News and PBS NewsHour. He is an active member of the American Academy of DermatologySkin Cancer Foundation, and American College of Mohs Surgery.

Make your kids 'sun-safe' this summer

Let Piccolo Principi make your summer adventures a breeze. Bringing your kids light, bright, fashionable sun protective swimwear, with guilt free shopping on

As summer approaches the need for UV protection rises, mostly for your little ones. With all that splashing in the water reapplying sunscreen isn't always the easiest. Make your life simpler by having your kids wear UPF labeled, sun protective swimwear.


UPF, a concept originally standardized in Australia in 1996, stands for ultraviolet protection factor, which quantifies how effectively a piece of clothing shields against the sun. The label means the fabric has been tested in a laboratory and consumers can be confident about the listed level of protection. It is based on the content, weight, color, and construction of the fabric, and indicates how much UV can penetrate the fabric. For instance, a shirt with a UPF of 50 allows just 1/50th of the sun’s UV radiation to reach your skin. This would provide excellent sun protection, in contrast to a thin white cotton T-shirt, which has a UPF of about , which allows 1/5th of the sun’s UV through — even more when wet. In studies done in Australia, lycra/elastane fabrics were the most likely to have UPFs of 50 or higher, followed by nylon and polyester.

Today, systems for testing and determining UPF are similar around the world. In many countries, including the US, the ASTM International (formerly called the American Society for Testing and Materials) criteria for UPF assessment are used; UPF labels in the US often state that an item meets ASTM International standards.
