Life's too short for boring water wear
Hey you 👋. This is us. We are Madeleine en Olivier Wallien (siblings) and this is our story. We both enjoy the life outside, especially on or close to the water.
We were bored with water wear. Why is it always so blah? It's usually dark, dull and sober.
These days you can look great almost everywhere. Now, why should you drop your personal style when hitting the water?
Exactly, no reason what so ever!
We are on a mission to make water wear fashionable!
Fashion for Water Sports
WALLIEN is world's first WATER FASHION brand. Function and performance are combined with fashionable designs. WALLIEN is about spending time in the water in style.
Our garments are suitable for various watersport occasions such as surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing, SUPing, sailing and swimming. But they are also perfect for an occasional day at the beach or the pool.
They are highly flexible for active movement and provide you with ultimate UV protection. All of our pieces were co-designed and tested by water sport enthusiasts.
ECO Friendly Goodness
Since we are both parents, we want to leave the planet in a better shape than how we found it. And we know that fashion is a very polluting industry, so we feel we have to take our responsibility.
We select the most sustainable fabrics we can find. And partner with factories with ethical labour. Your items transported in recyclable packaging. Because we care for our future generations.
Long Lasting Water Fun
All our products are meticulously designed by Madeleine at our Headquarters in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
We select our fabrics for the best water performance available and outfit them with the highest quality components. Then we go through many design iterations with experts to make sure we find the optimal fit. Next we fiercly water test our products on flexibility, warmth and protection.
Our garments are then produced by the best artisanal ateliers we can find. This way we are sure we supply you with high quality pieces that are ready for all the water fun that you'll throw at them.
Hand made for you with love from us.
