UPF50+ sun protection in size 8-20, this piece is fabulous over your bathers for long days at the beach. The full zip up lets you choose your coverage, wear it open with the sun at your back or zip it right up for fun in full sun. The fabric is 80% recycled polyester + 20% elastane for comfort and shape. It is cooling and provides sun protection when you need it, whilst keeping you warm when the sea breeze is in.
The prints are a collaboration with the wonderful Philippa of @pixienut. I couldn't believe my luck when she agreed to work together. We are both inspired by beautiful Western Australian flora, and these prints are a dream come true. The burden is truly in choosing which print as they are all so beautiful. Banksias on beach sand white... Smith's Beach kelp on salt lake pink... or Geraldton Wax flowers on sky blue.
Crafted by the team at Gemi in Bali (sewers Kadek, Narmi and Topik; cut/finish by Sri and Koko) this piece may have the shortest clothing miles in the world. The fibre is created from chipped post consumer plastic bottles in West Java at PT Polyfin Canggih, before being knitted by Harapan Kurnia. We buy the fabric in Bali at their store Bintang Harapan Kurnia and it is printed by Pak Arif on his digital sublimation press in his home business (we love working with other small operators). He is so proud of these stunning prints.
I had the fabric tested here in Australia by ARPANSA for UPF and it was classified as Excellent protection - UPF50+.
