Local Brand of the Week: Salty Hippy November 20, 2017 – Posted in: Brand of the Week – Tags: casual clothing, design, Durban, hand-drawn, local brand, Surf lifestyle
We would like to introduce to you a unique local brand that will give you that taste of summer you’ve been waiting for – Salty Hippy. Inspired by Ocean, Surf Lifestyle and Africa, talented Durbanite Kaylee Muller designs one-of-a-kind tees and vests, perfect to complement any casual day outfit!
All designs are drawn by hand, expressing Kaylee’s free-spirited soul and creative personality. As an Out-Of-The-Box thinker, she is extremely proud of how supportive people are about local brands in South Africa, noticing a rise in opportunities for young entrepreneurs in the country. Taking the risk to start her own business two years ago came with many challenges. Nevertheless, her ability to remain positive, seeking a solution to whatever problems she had to face, helped her grow as a person and turn Salty Hippy into a successful local business.
Besides her beautiful clothing range for men and women, Kaylee also launched a Coconut & Lime Body Scrub and is working towards a full body range. Salty Hippie’s range will be available on our Online Shopping Portal this Summer so stay tuned and read more about this talented bundle of energy through our weekly Q&A:
