Launching Friday 27th November in collaboration with the NFP SurfAid, Salt Gypsy released Drop 1 a limited edition line of their women and children’s ocean activewear range. Proceeds from every piece go directly to SurfAid’s programs to improve the health, wellbeing, and resilience of women and children living in isolated regions across Indonesia and Solomon Islands connected to us through surfing.
Celebrating female athleticism and style, the limited edition mix and match surf separates feature a surf suit, onepiece, rashguard as well as a four-piece kids range. For each adult piece sold, $10 will be donated to SurfAid; for each kids piece, $4 will be donated. Featured colorways include Fresh Air, Blush and Jasmine Print (inspired by the national flower of Indonesia).
“As a surfing mum who lived for several years in the Maldives and Indonesia, supporting SurfAid’s Mother and Child Health Program is what resonates with me most deeply. It was a no-brainer to use our small women-centric business as a tool to help raise funds for women and their children in remote regions of surf destinations many of us know, love and have had the privilege to travel to. During my pregnancy I had access to excellent medical care in Australia for myself and my baby. Other women do not and we can use our resources to help change this,” said Salt Gypsy founder, Danny Clayton.
Each Salt Gypsy piece is made in a female-owned production factory on the Gold Coast of Australia. Salt Gypsy uses a mix of fabrics made from recycled nylons and sourced from Australian distributors. The fabrics are UPF 50+ to protect your skin from UV damage and made from regenerated nylon waste, saving our seas from ocean plastics and our landfills from carpet
and textile offcuts.
The Salt Gypsy x SurfAid range will be available exclusively online through Saltgypsy.com.
