About us


Hi. My name is Maryse and I am a Canadian who left the advertising world 15 years ago to pursue my dream of living in the beautiful Caribbean Island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico.

Fascinated by the beautiful surroundings, I took on the project of painting sea life scenes and started to distribute my designs on tee shirts in scuba diving boutiques and resorts in the area.

A couple years later, Friends of the Reef was born and has now become a full line of clothing for inspired travelers. From casual nylons, to comfortable cottons and microfiber travel wear and accessories, I design articles essential to any traveler’s wardrobe. Things you can wear every day, that will fit any silhouette and will make you feel good while you’re on the move.
