World travelers and successful business women, Lorel Torres and Shirley Fred, were at the helm of their careers when their paths crossed again. Previously colleagues, then good friends separated by distance, they happened to share a similar dream. A dream they longed to bring to fruition and change their lives forever. They both sought to make a high-end swimwear line and thus created Mare Cheia Swimwear.

Travelling the globe, Shirley and Lorel acquired new vision to discover the best quality in fabric, artisanship, and techniques used around the world to create well thought out, sophisticated swimwear to grace under the sun or be active in aquatic adventures.

Being based in Puerto Rico is just a token to the design team, inspired daily by simply living on a tropical island known for its beautiful women, beaches, and landscapes.
