The driving force behind MARDA is simple. To design swimwear for men by unifying exclusive forward designs with a highly green focus.
Buying a MARDA product is about joining lifestyle that cares our future. Every production step from sourcing recycled materials to the design aesthetic right through the fabric innovation is enriched by our creative touch and profound love for the earth.
In 2018 the founder August Dyrberg travelled across the coastal regions of the Caribien and Asia, scuba-diving in search of an underwater utopia. Arriving and hoping to witness the spectacle of life underwater, he was shocked by the amount of plastic suffocating the beauty that lies beneath. Following this, August was driven by the desire to make a difference and therefor he established and build his own brand that would take plastic from our oceans and turn it into a premium quality product by combining modern designs with a truly sustainable vision.
The name MARDA is though-fully derived from the Italian word ́mare ́ which means ocean and then added August´s initials A&D.
Our Mission is to produce to the most sustainable swimwear possible- unmatched in quality, comfort & style.
