These surf fashion features are not just about wetsuits and swimwear, instead we want to introduce all sorts of brands and products that are relevant for us gidgets on our salty adventures – both in and out of the ocean!
The May feature brand is Sea Nomad, a local brand that is grounded in sustainable values and makes unique limited edition threads inspired by the ocean and wild spaces.
Inspired by the ocean
Born on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and established by couple Lex and Laura, Sea Nomad is a merging of their mutual passions for design, art and photography. Living by the sea, surfing and spending time in Australia’s bush land has always been the inspiration behind all Sea Nomad designs, and the ethos for the brand is one of accountability and sustainability, deriving from the creators’ respect for the natural environment. As such a key feature of all Sea Nomad pieces is that they are made from high quality 100% organic chemical free cotton. The Sea Nomad crew is also big advocates of sweatshop free production and keeping it local, hence all their threads are made here in Australia.
What makes these tees and tanks unique is that each piece is hand printed by Lex and Laura using eco friendly water based inks. They also use special metallic copper inks for some of the prints, which look awesome! All Sea Nomad threads are made with black or white cotton only in order to really bring the prints into focus – and this is well justified, as the prints are really something special.
I highly recommend you Gidget Fashionistas check out this rad little brand, you won’t regret adding a Sea Nomad tank or tee to your collection – perfect with your favourite denim shorts for those early morning surf checks, road trips and all around salty adventures or stylish chilling!
