MABI swimwear believes that fashion can be beautiful, fair and sustainable, having the powerful ability to let us dream. That is why we are convinced that we should contribute to make this a better world for tomorrow.
Based in London, MABI is an eco-luxury swimwear brand. As nature lovers, we want to share with you the greatness of this magical planet that is worth protecting. We put our minds and hearts in quality and detail, because we know that good things take time. We believe in the beauty of fine practice, presenting you with luxurious collections responsibly made using eco-friendly and recyclable fabrics.
MABI is a brand with a purpose, and we are committed to protect what we love. In the words of Desmond Tutu: “Do your little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put all together that overwhelm the world”.
The Earth has been giving us clear signs that we must change our ways. If we want to thrive, it is time we take responsibility, change our ways, and start honouring this planet that sustains all of our lives. This is only our home.
We are nature lovers. Inspired by all the beauty contained in our planet Earth, we believe that fashion can be a force for good and the perfect way to spread the word for environmental conservation.
For years, we have exploited our planet’s natural resources. We have taken the soil, the food, the water, the air and all the gifts that planet Earth provides us for granted. Some people even believe that we are entitled to just take and take from it without a thought of nourishing it back. We are simply not; it is time to give back to the Earth. We need a healthy ecosystem not only for our quality of life, but also for our very own survival. It is time we stop, rethink and transform the way we live and do business in order to support biodiversity, so all of life can continue to thrive on this beautiful planet for many years to come.
MABI is always in search of the ultimate and most eco-friendly materials, contributing to green initiatives. As a result, in spring 2017, the moment our brand was conceived, we teamed up with “Iniciativa Verde”. This initiative is part of the Carbon Free Project, which neutralizes MABI’s carbon emissions and fight deforestation by planting native trees in preservation areas. Through these programmes, we aim to replenish landscapes by planting trees in the Atlantic Woods in the most damaged areas of Cantareira.
We need standing forests not only to ensure balanced climatic conditions on our planet, but also to enable us to continue enjoying the wonders that nature offers us. We are all connected, what happens in nature will directly impact our lives. Preserving our forests means preserving life.
Maristela Soares moved from Brazil to London in 2017 to pursue her fashion career. It is her deepest wish to make people aware of the catastrophic consequences of fast-fashion, to heal our exploited Earth, to provide better conditions for people working in textile factories, and to encourage consumers to choose conscientiously.
Undoubtedly, Maristela’s intention is to contribute towards sustainable fashion by using organic fabrics and taking part in green initiatives. Maristela’s Brazilian heritage means she feels a deep-rooted passion for protecting the Amazon Rainforest and, to honour this, her designs are inspired directly by the wild and vibrant Amazon, the largest rainforest in the world and home to priceless biodiversity.
MABI, her brand, is elegance and sensuality combined, offering styles that will easily compliment all body shapes. Most importantly, Maristela desires to reignite our appreciation of quality, ethical swimwear made with integrity, to make people fall in love with her beautiful designs and the wonders of our planet Earth again and again.
