The story of the combining passions

Enjoying my life traveling.

     The creator of To-Die-For-Shammies is me, Ginni van Katwijk, a diver from the Netherlands currently living in the United States.  I try to create and sell the best quatliy and most unique tie dye shammies / chamois for everyone. I initially started tie dyeing in my garage apartment in Houston, TX over 10 years ago. 


     As an international student-athlete at the University of Houston I competed at NCAA's as well as many Grandprix, European Championships and World Cups, representing the Netherlands. As my tie dye shammies / chamois gained popularity I continued tie dyeing even after I officially "retired" as a competitive diver. But I can still be found in the pool a lot as I am now a high diver and I recently competed in my first RedBull CliffDiving event. 


​   Besides making shammies I also performed in shows (as a high diver) on Royal Caribbean cruise ships and I was part of the House of Dancing Water Show in Macau, China (This one sadly closed after Covid).

Right now I am back again on the Harmony of the Seas for another high diving contract. Because of this I will be shipping out shammies once a week on the weekend. I thank you for your understanding. 

      If you are looking for specific color combinations and or patterns please shoot me a message and of course I will always try and see what I have available. 




My Mission

     My mission is to create awesome, unique, and durable tie dye shammies / chamois / sammies for anybody and everybody in diving (and other sports!).

As a diver myself I do my best to cater to diver's needs, by listening to their requests and suggestions.


The Challenge

Competing 10 meter at European Championships.
Performing on the Cruiseship.

     If you have any ideas, suggestions and/or requests, please do not hesistate to contact me! I am always up for a creative challenge! This could be anything from requests for paintings, shammy ideas, designs, etc.
