Welcome to Byron Rashie! Growing up in Byron Bay in a surfing family who migrated from the northern beaches of Sydney, the ocean has always been close to my heart. When Bob McTavish is on hand to help name you before you're born, and amongst your earliest memories are the shaping rooms at San Juan Surfboards in Byron, of course a passion for the lifestyle comes naturally.
Byron Rashie came about because I wanted to stay in the sun longer, but couldn't find a rashie with a hood... a hood that had a function and would protect from the sun and wind. So, basically, I went ahead and made one, and it really of took off from there...
We're an ethical outdoor brand right here in Byron Bay. Byron Rashie employs local Australian businesses to cut and sew the garments, helping to grow a sustainable future for ourselves and those that work with us. We're all on this planet together, so as a brand we're vigilant about making contribution to our world being a better place.
In 2016 we transitioned to using a new fabric predominantly made from regenerated pre and post consumer waste such as plastic bottles and fishing nets and all garments using this fabric are marked as such.
We're all about precious time outside in our amazing nature for you and the people you love. Ethically. Consciously. Slowly.
So what's next? This year, 2022, we're opening our photo archive to customers. We will release images one by one, available for limited purchase (signed and numbered). These will be our favourite images from our travels up and down the coast, but mainly it's Byron. Images will be printed on Canvas (rolled / stretched / floating frame), Cotton Rag and Matte Print. Ordering will be a simple affair straight from this website and delivered to your door. If all goes to plan, this will be from September 2022.
Until then, take care and if you need to chat, get in touch.
