As Seen On
Sustainable & Handmade Fashion
Makara wear is a 100% sustainable swimwear and apparel brand. All of our products are handmade in Bali by fair-paid workers. From upcycled materials used by fashion brands in Europe – we make comfortable, beautiful & long-lasting wear.
Our swimwear & apparel is built to last. For Australian beaches or Northern lagoons – be comfortable, look beautiful and feel at ease.
How It's Made
Our design process starts with a pen and paper. Making the process enjoyable, creative & filled with unconditional love for the end result.
Then, a small Indonesian family-run factory creates 2 to 5 samples to find the most comfortable fit, functionality & cut. All the styles are tested by surfers, friends and the founder.
After creating the perfect one, we start producing in very small batches - so every piece is freshly made and sent immediately – without absorbing bacterias or smells.
All your ordered goods will come in Linen Cotton Bag – we don’t put plastic hygiene stickers or labels as we believe it’s just another waste, that will end up in trash.
Why I created Makara wear?
I moved out to Bali to search for a different lifestyle and fell in love with surfing. Surfing became a big part of my life and I decided to create swimwear for myself that would be elegant, functional and of top quality - this how Makara wear was born. Sustainability became the major part of our process. I believe there's no other way for the fashion world anymore, because we need to take care of our planet. Makara wear creates what I would wear myself - minimalist, handmade swimsuits with extra details and cuts to hug you like a glove. Most of our products are created with zero waste formula – from leftovers we make scrunchies or bikini bottoms. Also, we support beach clean ups in Bali and small surfer girl communities in Indonesia, who can’t afford sustainable swimwear, we support them and appreciate their force and will. That's why. :)

I love it together - swimming and sunbathing, sunbathing and swimming... :) and hate how uncomfortable regular bikinis are for sports, and sports swimwear - for sunbathing, so thank you MAKARAWEAR for coming into my life! :D Apart for swimming and sunbathing :) I also like quality and “all being in it’s place comfortably” :) - kiku sporty bra & cheeky cut bottom are my favorites for all my watersports activities! :) honestly - good job MAKARAWEAR!
I live in Bali and honestly live in this suit. I can wear it as a sports bra, bikini, and just an outfit. It fits so well, super comfy, and the back of the bra is beautiful. The bottom is kinda that perfect medium of some coverage but not too much. Love this suit.
It's the best place to find sporty and sexy bikini :) it's comfortable and the material is very good quality!! i love it
