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. :)

The top stands out in the crowd and makes my look! So happy I decided to try something new and ordered the neon one. Coming back for more soon
Bought first one in black color in store in BALI, and when just fell in love with it and ordered this color 2 sets, amazing quality and super comfy.
I’m extremely happy about my new COCO BIKINI NEON - I love the material, it’s quality and the COLOR!!! 😀 Makes me feel quite exceptional while wearing it! 😉
Love this bikini so much. I even mix and match the top with other bikini bottoms like I did in the photo. The colour is perfect and makes you look super tan! But the best part of it all is that this top stays on even when you’re jumping off a yacht. Functional and comfortable. What more can you ask
