Rowan Board Short | Natural History Museum

Made from a quick drying 100% recycled polyester fabric with a secure adjustable drawcord, the Rowan women’s board short is an adventure ready, mid-rise board short that packs down into its back pocket.

In collaboration with the Natural History Museum, the Rowan uses a classic nautical stipe pattern with a contrasting back pocket that features hand-selected illustrations from pioneering 17th century naturalist, Maria Sibylla Merian.

A German-born naturalist and scientific illustrator, Maria travelled the world’s oceans observing insects and flora. For more information about her life and work, read the full story over on the Broadcast.

Comfortable and Great Shape

Hard to find board shorts that are comfortable, look good and fit well. Looking forward to getting out on the water in these.

Great service, great product!

Having not bought any trouser/ short items from you before so I was unsure of the fit, but these shorts fit perfectly! They are a great shape, comfortable and practical. Although I love a pocket, but the main pocket is on the back rather than the sides - but it's a small price to pay for otherwise a great garment.

Nice material

I like these a lot. They are a tiny bit of the tight size but seeing as this brand doesn’t make clothes over size 16 (which is quite bad actually! Are only certain size people allowed to swim?) had to make do. Such a nice pattern.

Great short

Really great fit and good length for a women's board short - don't feel exposed in them and can still move freely

Very pleased with this purchase after a long time searching!

Also love the packaging - dissolved the plastic in some hot water and that felt so good!
