Dreaming of environmentally responsible swimwear? Us too! As you can imagine we spend a lot of time in the water, and we’re blown away by the gorgeous creations by MagdakineDesigns Swimwear. Inspired by island life, our planet's delicate ecosystems, and all the eco-elegant goddesses of the world, Magdalena uses her formal education in environmental science and imagination to blend sustainable luxury with environmental awareness and activism.

MagdakineDesigns is a collection of sustainable swimwear designed by Magdalena Berger and intended to embrace our eco-elegant goddess within. Their fabrics are imported from Italy and made using ECONYL® Fiber, in a process that reclaims old textiles and abandoned fishing nets to create the stretchy, ultra-durable swimwear fabric.

Each print is designed by Magdalena at her studio in Isabela, Puerto Rico and inspired by nature’s most fascinating yet vulnerable species. Each pattern is then hand drawn and original samples are sewn by Magdalena before being sent to production at a family-owned-and-operated factory in Los Angeles, California. By hand creating each print, pattern and original sample, every MagdakineDesigns piece ensures utter uniqueness and the perfect fit. Bonus factor, each bikini is reversible, giving you more than one way to be eco-chique.

Fascinated by manta rays (she even has a tattoo of one), she has designed a manta ray bikini and has pledged to donate 10% of each sale to the Marine Megafauna Foundation to support our research and conservation efforts of these gentle giants.

Check out her beautiful swimwear collection available online. She delivers across the United States and globally. Grab one for yourself, as a thoughtful gift to an eco-goddess friend, or simply share this post to spread the love!
