How it all started

MYMARINI was born from the love of nature, surfing, and the sea. MYMARINI’s founder and designer, Mareen Burk, took time off from her professional life in 2012 to travel and fully dedicate herself to surfing. In her search for sustainable swimwear that wasn’t just suitable for surfing but was also modern and elegant, Mareen realized how far conventional swimwear was from being resource-friendly and produced under fair working conditions. She wanted to change that – for herself, society, and the environment. She wrote the first business plan while she was still traveling. Once Mareen got back to Germany, she founded the sustainable swimwear label in Hamburg in 2013.


2013 Mareen founds the sustainable swimwear label MYMARINI.
2015 MYMARINI is featured in "Brigitte" magazine – public awareness rises overnight, and the company grows.
2016 Annette, Mareen's mother, takes over the logistics department and from now on MYMARINIs products are shipped from Triberg in the Black Forest.
2017 Better together: Willi, Mareen's partner, becomes a partner at the company.

For the first time ever, MYMARINI is represented at fashion fairs in Berlin and Paris.

A good move: cooperation with a Swiss department store begins – it’s remained one of MYMARINI's biggest retailers to date.
MYMARINI Retreats begin: these retreats are the perfect choice for clients to immerse themselves in the MYMARINI lifestyle – including surfing, yoga, and delicious food.
2018 Opening of the flagship store in Hamburg.
Our shipment department moves to a new warehouse in the black wood forest.
MYMARINI is now available in Vienna at one of our first retailers "Amour Fou".

Several new collections are launched. There is the swimwear collection Swim Apparel, summer styles for casual beach days and MYMARINI also expands the range to include an underwear collection made from residual material fabrics as well as a new LOUNGEWEAR collection made from TENCEL™ Lyocell.
