Kandumathi is a Maldivian swimwear label, which was born out of traditional thinking with a global outlook.

Founded in London by Maldivian siblings Yasra and Yusree Jaleel in 2016, the brand’s name Kandumathi comes from a traditional Maldivian phrase which embodies the essence of a vulnerable but enduring life, It is Kandu – Ocean and Mathi – in it, meaning “in the ocean” or “at sea.”

The label takes inspiration from natural environment and Maldivian culture, and works with local artists and designers to produce their pieces. The brand’s swimwear collections are based on water colour paintings.
