The Maris Sal® story began when Maria Johansson Bayindir, Swedish designer and scuba dive instructor, had had enough of inferior quality accessories which would not stand the test of the nautical environment in which she spent her days.
Inspired by her father, a skilled goldsmith, she decided to create a range of superior quality, nautical bracelets, which would be the perfect companion for a nautical dream life.
One should never have to sacrifice durability for beauty or settle with less than perfection.
Our philosophy is built into every piece we make.
The Maris Sal Collection is made for the discerning individual, who appreciates the pleasures of the seaside lifestyle and seeks quality in all aspects of life.
Home sweet island
In the northern part of Sweden’s west-coast archipelago lies Hönö island which has a popular marina and a wide range of activities such as scuba diving and kayaking. A number of restaurants and cafés can also be found in the harbour.
Maris Sal has it’s home here, close to the wind and the sea. Northwestern Hönö consists of a nature reserve and on the southwest side there are beautiful walking paths.
Our office on the island - located only a stone's throw from the ocean - is the heart of the design of our models. New products are ideated here every year, by our in-house designer with close attention to detail and functionality, offering accessories of unmistakable Swedish style and quality.
The archipelago runs almost 280 kilometers up Sweden’s west coast and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. CNN Travel ranks it the seventh most beautiful natural wilderness area in the world!
