The Maryan beachwear group is a family-owned company with more than 60 years of experience having started from humble beginnings it has developed into an international swimwear specialist.
In 1946 Pia and Paul Dobele, the parents of Maryan Mehlhorn founded the company designing and manufacturing predominately corsetry. Due to a crisis in the foundation garment market industry in the 1960's the Dobeles started to develop swimwear and beachwear ranges.
In 1976 Maryan Mehlhorn and her husband Thomas took over the company from her parents and in 1977 the company decided to focus exclusively on fashion swimwear. In 1982 the second brand 'MARYAN' was established. This and the creation of further labels signified the companies growing success in the mid 80's.
In 1999 the brand 'MARYAN' turned into 'MARYAN MEHLHORN' and in 2011 the Maryan Mehlhorn collection was named Swimwear Brand of the Year at the UK Lingerie Awards in London.
