A homage to Gaia; the all-loving mother earth, who is nourishing, nurturing and protecting. A feminine yet functional take on the classic long sleeve rash guard, the Gaia offers sun protection on high sun areas around the shoulders with the addition of a modern cut-out detail. Layer over bathers for a brisk morning dip or paddle, or wear in the evening with your favourite pair of pants, the Gaia is a versatile addition to any wardrobe.
- 78% recycled polyamide / 22% Italian lycra
- ECONYL® regenerated yarn
- Cropped body
- Elastic key loop
- Quick dry fabric
- UPF 50+ protects from sunburn and skin damage
Tegan is 173cm tall and wears a size 2.
Woven from ghost fishing nets and fabric mill scraps, our 100% recycled Italian Nylon is five times stronger than the average spandex swimwear. With UPF50+ protection and ultra chlorine resistance, it’s engineered to withstand the elements.
Moving towards a circular economy model, our fabric cleans plastic from the ocean to be repurposed into a long lasting item when handled with care.
- Always hand rinse your pieces in cold water after use to avoid salt drying into the fabric as this can take a toll on the fibres.
- To remove sunscreen or marks, hand wash in cold water with a mild earth friendly laundry liquid and focus on gently rubbing it into the areas needed. Do not wash in hot water, tumble dry, dry clean or iron your swimsuit. Heat will cause damage to the fibres.
- Avoid twisting and pulling your swimwear when wet.
- To dry, lay flat in shade or hang over a clothesline. Avoid using pegs.
- Avoid contact with rough surfaces, oils, lotions, spas, chlorine and other harsh chemicals to get the longest wear out of your swimsuit.

I purchased a while back the long sleeve Aire Turtleneck Rashguard and matching high waisted bottoms in Earth by Hakea and they are by far the best swimmers I’ve ever purchased. No word of a lie! They’re excellent quality and I love the brand. - Emily
Just wanted to say that I am absolutely in love with the items that I have. It is the best swimwear I have ever owned. So comfortable, flattering and easy to wear! - Alison
You don’t know how many compliments I get in the Terrain One-piece it’s crazy, but understandable! I’ve been surfing in it so much and it feels great. - Louise
The Terrain One Piece is perfection! I’m amazed with the quality and the shape honestly! Nothing suits me well ever and this one fits like a glove! - Beatriz
I’m so happy with the Ran/Aire/Santiago set! I have been looking for something like this for probably 2 years and it's perfect. - Christine
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the delivery of my swimmers. I was expecting them into the new year and they were a very welcome surprise on my doorstep this morning. I am over 40 weeks pregnant and awaiting our little babe, and this really made my morning. They feel and look better than imagined! Won’t be able to fit the high waisted bottoms till Bub is born but for now the top is just heaven. So much so I bought 2 extra pairs. Thank you for making swimmers that fit and feel incredible! - Anna
I’m so thrilled everything is just gorgeous. Beautifully made and fantastic quality - I have already been asked a number of times where I got them from so hopefully you will get some new orders. Lots of compliments! They have more than met my expectations. Congratulations on your business, I am a dedicated customer. - Fiona
I recently purchased a set of your bathers and I’m loving how wearable and comfortable they are. I feel confident in them and love that they are good quality pieces with supportive cuts. Thanks so much for great items. - Isabella
I know there is a lot of competition in the market, and I chose your company based on your values, your materials, your style and the fact that you are an Australian company. I have been searching for a long time for a top that actually protected from the sun and looked stunning - you definitely achieve that. - Emma
I absolutely adore my Chacahua Suit. Your products, service and brand are unreal! Please keep up the good work! - Rhiannon
Just a quick email to say THANK YOU for your help. I’ve just tried on my set and it fits perfectly, I absolutely love it! I haven’t worn a bikini since I had my second baby 4 years ago and this set sits so nicely and I feel really confident and pretty in it. So a huge thanks to you and your team, I’m sure I’ll end up getting a second pair. - Annie
I just tried everything on and its all perfect! You can tell everything is high quality and the designs are so flattering. I've never had such luck with swimwear! - Fiona
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for creating such a beautiful range. I received my swimwear in the mail recently and it is amazing quality and the most flattering cut I’ve bought in a long time. I really appreciate your vision of creating sun safe swim wear for women, by women. So a big thank you from a pale Victorian woman who loves to be protected from the sun in comfort and style!! - Laura
Being a small waist and a big bust I found it such a surprise when I put the Mariposa Top on and it immediately felt supportive and so comfortable. It’s such a well designed cut and looks so flattering. I could literally wear it all day. - Erin
This will be my fourth swimsuit from Hakea. I ocean swim daily and I find them super comfortable and also flattering. - Georgia
I am in love with the bikini, I've been looking for ages for this exact style that fits well! - Maja
I just wanted to let you know that is the best darn bikini I have ever worn. I’m officially in love and haven't been able to take it off. Practical and sexy. It is everything. I'm so happy. Thank you and well done. - Caitlin
I can’t remember when I last felt this confident in swimmers! - Inanna
To body surf and sun bake in the same set of bikinis is a huge yes from me!!! I’m so confident in my Hakea set; no need to adjust myself after a swim is a huge relief, especially being a 32D. Thank you for such high quality and comfortable pieces. - Erin
Your products are amazing! They make me feel confident and safe when I'm out surfing or beaching :) Nice work! - Sandra
I had spent years searching for long swim tops just like yours, and was very happy when I snapped one up at its release. It changed my swimming life. - Sarah
