A Day At the Beach

Australia’s summer is here and that means long days on the beach sun tanning, surfing and even perhaps, snorkelling.

And no one attempts this highlight of the year without a stunning beach outfit or two. And all the bits and pieces that go with that, like sunglasses, hats, and towels. 

Let’s see what Local Threads has for you this summer. Our platform supports local Australian eco-friendly brands whose creators are committed to creating sustainable and ethical clothing. So, if you buy from us, you are supporting stunning products proudly designed and marketed in Australia. You’ll also be doing your bit for the environment.

  • Get a beautifully stitched twin piece from Seapia
  • Seapia swimsuits are made from Econyl®, a fabric that’s made from pre and post-consumer plastics, transformed into a new polymer to create a new yearn that’s ideal for high-performance textiles.

    The Chalito top features a lovely detail consisting of a small under-bust cut-out finished with a neat edge. To stop the edges from rolling, the front top edge is finished with zig-zag under-stitching. The top has side boning and bust darts for support and perfect shaping.

    Match the Chalito swim top in vermillion red for $49.00 with a Chalito swim bottom in vermillion red for $49.00.

  • For a gorgeous beach towel, look no further than Sand Society
