Designed by women for women, WALLIEN is the Amsterdam-based waterwear brand creating wetsuits cut to fit the female form. Refusing to compromise on quality or style is what the brand stands for, and that goes for the environment, too. WALLIEN is an advocate of marine conservation, as seen in its partnership with non-profit, Blue Marine Foundation, with whom it has collaborated to create its stunning Horizonia line of wetsuits, launched in September 2023.

In the words of brand ambassador, champion surfer, Nikki van Dijk, "Like many others, I see the ocean as my second home. It's an honour to work with a brand that really is trying to make a difference to our seas - if we want to use the ocean, we have to take care of it."

2023 will see the release of an independent documentary, 'The Big Sea,' which follows the lives of those in 'Cancer Alley' in Reserve, Louisiana, home to a synthetic rubber plant alongside over 200 other petrochemical plants, where the cancer risk-rate is 50 times the national average, posing the question, "Can you live with the real cost of a Neoprene wetsuit?"
In and around New York Climate Week, our team has been working alongside Goals House as the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) convenes in the city, where WALLIEN, the makers of The Big Sea, and other experts will discuss this important issue, in the name of better health for both people and planet.
We look forward to making further announcements from the company, in due course.
