Beach & Bandits is a seaside based brand and was founded in 2015 by husband an wife duo Hans and Jo-anne. Together with their two little bandits they spend most of their time on the beach. They wanted them to be safe in the sun, but also to look cool. In their search for cool & comfortable sun-safe threads, they got frustrated at the lack of these threads available. So they started a journey and set out on a mission. Beach & Bandits was born and believes that UPF50+ sun-protective swimwear can be cool and sun-safe at the same time!
Through our handdrawn illustrations and crisp colors we want to capture your little bandits imagination and encourage their wanderlust. We want your kids to come out of their shell, go to the beach, live in the sunshine... to stay wild! But above all, we want to keep your little bandits safe in the sun. Skin cancer is increasingly becoming the most common type of cancer worldwide. And with childhood sunburns being the leader in causing skin cancer later in life, we need to ensure our kids are protected from the sun's harmful UV rays. With our UPF50+ swimwear your little bandits can look cool, feel cool but most important, stay protected!
We keep them safe, they keep us wild!
