Recycled Sunglass Bags

Soft, simple, practical and just cool. Got these Sunglass Bags in made out of our Riz Boardshorts recycled and recyclable polyester. They only come in one colour at the moment but think they'll look great covering the whole range.

All good ideas start with Cappuccino!

Had a great couple of days brand building with Ali. Sometimes getting away from your desk
and a change of scene can do wonders. We found the local organic granny cafe a perfect place
to plot global domination. Here's to dreams ..

A take on a classic

With a take on Classic Californian Surf Style, this shoot in Men's File Issue 3 seems to
hit the modern nail on the head. I'm Inspired by the elegance and simplicity, even the subtle
sexiness of near innocence. The mid length shorts look modern too.

Loving the hand drawn fantastical works of Khanage. I met Kristine recently and was immediately wisked off into a world of folk legend and inspiration.

This year Khanage will be involved in a big recycling project to collect old/broken surfboards, keep them off the dumps and give them a new lease of life by turning them into pieces of art.

Illustrating them with collected tales of the sea and the coastline. Highlighting places of interest, lost history and generally encouraging people to stop watching TV and keep talking/reading/telling tales!
