The HappieCo story is simple - I could not find good quality, chlorine resistant, UPF 50+, gender neutral swimwear for my children made in Australia. So I decided to find a group of talented people and create what I was looking for. The result is sun protective swimwear for children that will last the whole summer and it is not all baby pink and blue. As a bonus it is designed and made locally with recycled materials.
Our swimwear is anything but simple. A very talented local designer, Elizabeth Hackney, has hand drawn all our beautiful fun prints. These prints have been printed in Australia onto some fancy fabric called Xtra Life LYCRA®. This fabric is made from regenerated nylon and polyester fiber from post-consumer materials such as carpets, clothing and fishing nets. This fabric provides UPF 50+ sun protection and is five times more chlorine resistant than your average chlorine-resistant fabric. The fabric is then sewn in Australia into well made quality swimwear.
I hope you enjoy the collection! Sian
