about casey

The Approach

Our swimwear is for women who walk comfortably on their own path, who wish to bathe in sunshine and to move across oceans, unrestricted. Our designs are born from a search for simple elegance and functionality and are inspired by women of all walks of life. We design pieces that let you live in them, moving through your days feeling truly empowered.

The Story

Hakea is the water baby of Graphic designer Casey Eastwell. Like all of us Casey dreamt of making her work, her pleasure and has melted a love for design, sunshine and exploring into her brand. Frustrated with a lack of swimwear that made her feel confident or resembled her own style while she travelled and surfed, Hakea is her solution.
Elegant in form and quality in material, Casey has crafted swimwear to free women from the fetters of tiny bikinis and shapeless rash guards. Hakea is about embracing the sun and surf feeling comfortable and inspired.

The Product

We believe in giving mother nature as much goodness as she gives us. On our journey to take care of our bodies and our environment we have crafted swimwear from thick nylon spandex, that will retain its shape and extend its lifespan. We endeavour to craft pieces that allow you to travel lighter with designs that are wearable in both the surf and the street. Each purchase comes in reusable packaging as we aim to minimise waste and encourage reusability. We are always growing and learning about how to reduce our negative impacts on the environment and whilst we do, we promise you transparency and reliable information, so that you can feel confident in the quality and impact of your purchase.
