Elegant and functional, Hakea is designed to inspire confidence with thoughtful shapes and styles that celebrate diversity of the female form. Made to last many summer’s, Hakea rethinks swim and surf wear, to bring ease, beauty and simplicity into everyday living. Created with the planet in mind, we focus on versatile design that blends into life on land and in the water, allowing you to travel light. Functional without compromising on style, our designs are sampled on all body shapes, tailoring fits that honour every woman’s individual beauty.
Inspired by Australia’s arid coastlines and desert landscapes. Our timeless designs in earthen colour palettes are produced in limited runs, removing the emphasis from acquisition of material and towards a connection to the things that really matter.
Hakea is our answer to a simpler life. Our brand mission was to be inherently sustainable from the beginning by focusing on versatility, quality and timeless cuts. By shifting away from the 4 seasons per year fashion model we can produce smaller runs as needed, reducing over ordering and wastage. We manufacture with two small friends and family operated companies whose staff are paid a fair wage with good working conditions. By producing versatile swimwear we are cutting down the need for excess and extending the lifecycle and number of wears per garment encouraging individuals to reduce their carbon foot print. We seek out the best quality fabrics we can find, that are sun protectant and stand up to the elements including ECONYL regenerated nylon, to last many sun drenched summers to come.
Our small, female led operation endeavors to implement sustainable practices throughout the entire business including using compostable packaging when receiving deliveries from our suppliers, re-usable calico bags when sending to our customers, Better Packing Co compostable satchels and eco-friendly stickers. We are currently looking into how we can become a more circular model and help women in need.
