Marwida

sustainable swimshorts

Marwida is founded as a climate smart brand. Elegant swimwear produced in the highest quality, made to last long and dry quickly. Created and designed from recycled materials.

Most of the plastic litter in this creative reuse comes from the Mediterranean Sea. To us it is natural to stay on this path. By wearing a pair of Marwidas while swimming in any ocean, you will be part of closing the loop.

The essence is style, and a sustainable relationship to sea and coast.
