This reversible no-fuss bikini top features prints inspired by Australian flora and painted by the wonderful @Pixienut. A classic cut with an easy fit and enduring style, there are no clasps to fuss with or get in the way of ocean action. Just tidy lines and two ways to wear each bikini top. Great for an A-C cup. Sold as separates so you can get a great fit!
The fabric used is made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon (solid fabric) and recycled polyester REPREVE (printed fabric). This means this fabric is reducing landfill and VOCs, and using less carbon. Made with love by the incredibly skilled team in their Bali studio. Couple with our ocean or calling rashie for long days in the sun.

This reversible pattern results from a collaboration between Claire in Freo and Topik and Ms Juju in their Bali studio.
The prints are painted and tesselated by the madly skilled Philippa of Pixie Nut who just loves Australian flora as much as Claire. Together they sought inspiration from Australian bush flowers and considered beautiful background colours of our most pristine beaches, salt lakes and southern sky.
The fabric is purchased in Indonesia from Mustofa at SAS Textile. It is digitally printed in a Balinese home business by owner/operator Pak Arif. He does an amazing job and is so proud of the results.
The team at Gemi are lead by Ms Juju in her home studio. Cutting and finishing/quality checks are done by Sri and Koko. All sewing is done by Topik, Narmi and Kadek. Whenever I visit these guys the place is full of laughter and chatter. Kids play in the yard after school. All holidays are taken paid, and there is no enforced overtime.
The result is these mightily beautiful garments, sewn with love, made to last.
