Salt Gypsy
Drawn from a lifetime chasing long period swells, Salt Gypsy is a women’s surf lifestyle company focused on developing stylish & long-lasting surfwear for discerning women of the sea.

Since 2015, we have manufactured our women's surf and swimwear on the Gold Coast, QLD, and advocated for slow and local manufacturing to support the workers in our domestic economy, as well as working to reduce the carbon footprint of our business. We currently source all our Carvico stretch fabrics from Eclipse/Charles Parsons and Mereton. We have just landed a major US retailer with our first export shipment heading out in February. Over the last six months, we have experienced rapid online growth and are seeking support and resources to help us scale this growth from manufacturing through to export.
