As Seen On
WHY I CREATED MAKARA WEAR?
Bali was more than a change of scenery for me—it was where my love for the untamed ocean and the thrill of motorbikes collided with a dream.
That dream? To design swimwear that didn't just look good but lived and breathed the island life.
That's the soul of MAKARA WEAR.
I pour my days into every design, ensuring they're not just pieces of fabric but a hug for your body. They're what I reach for whether I'm catching waves or just out for a coffee—durable yet as comfortable as an old favorite song.
Our pivot to sustainability wasn't a trend; it was a necessity. Every scrap is reborn under our roof, ensuring we're not just taking from the earth but giving back to it.
And when it comes to giving back, it's personal. I rolled up my sleeves and got to work with the Bali Food Bank, which I helped start. It's about filling bellies here and now extending a hand to Ukrainian families, too. Plus, there's more on the horizon with our plans to support our reefs and rainforests.
Your support? It's the wind beneath MAKARA's wings.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of this journey—every step of the way.

MAKARA WEAR is exactly what I wear for my everyday life, whether it’s doing water sports, riding motorbikes, or carrying out casual life tasks. I put extra attention to each centimeter, so the result is a cut that hugs the body like a glove. This is why customers feel confident in MAKARA WEAR - my pieces gently smooth the body like shapewear.
I'm also a big believer in giving back. For two years, we partnered with Bali Food Bank, a charity I co-founded on the island to provide nourishment to impoverished families. Now, we’re also supporting Ukrainian families in need, with plans to contribute to reef and rainforest organizations in the near future. In Bali, we love to participate in beach cleanups, and support local Indonesian surfers - they truly inspire us with their passion, force, and will.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following this journey and for supporting my brand.
