Seek shelter under a beach umbrella from Salty Shadows
Summer is synonymous with sun-drenched days spent by the beach but if you don’t want to resemble a lobster by day’s end, seek shelter underneath a pretty retro umbrella from Salty Shadows.
Some quality sunscreen, a round towel and a great printed umbrella are essential for surviving a Gold Coast summer. If you’ve got the first two sorted but not the third, then say hello to Salty Shadows Beach Umbrellas. Featuring pretty fringed gypsy patterns, Moroccan-inspired loveliness and classic islander prints, the range is a welcome reprieve from the various striped designs that flood the sand.
The visionary behind the brand is Alex Picton who has worked with talented textile designers to create the beautiful prints. The umbrellas are a polyester cotton blend fabric on a swivel head for easy shade adjustment, they’re super lightweight and they come in a calico carry bag making it a cinch to throw on your back as you do the hot shoe shuffle across the sand. The best part is that a portion of all sales goes to Sea Shepherd Australia so you’re helping the ocean by helping yourself. Browse Salty Shadows online.
