Unique local lifestyle brands and products that will guide, motivate and inspire you to express your identity

Christina Fraser Studio

This isn’t regular jewellery, it’s cool jewellery! From the Christina Fraser Studio you’ll find divinely detailed accessories, fit for the bohemian, minimalist, flower child and everyone else with a taste for cute earrings and trinket trays. While you might still know (and love) the Christina Clay brand, Christina Fraser Studio has shifted gears and diversified their offering since the name change. Air-dry clay is complemented by new Perspex styles, including delicate botanical details and gold and silver hardware. An extra special addition to the selection includes painstakingly hand-painted dangling drops, like mini artworks for your ears.




Cute swimwear? Check! Kind to the planet and women? Check and check! Cheeky is a local sustainable swimwear line made from recycled plastic ocean waste, such as single-use bottles and commercial fishing waste. Bold colours like violet and cobalt blue make for a striking ensemble, and some more shades including an essential black two-piece and red full bodysuit means there’s something for every kind of woman. Whether you’re catching a tan, attending a pool party or going for a dip in the ocean, rest assured there’s a Cheeky swimsuit for the occasion. And what’s better than knowing your bikini is helping remove plastic waste from our seven seas. 




Namibian skincare for Namibian skin. It’s a no-brainer! Emssence is a local self-care brand with product ranges including bespoke amenities, a baby and new-mum line, and their trailblazing natural skincare range aptly dubbed PURE. Fans of gentle skin products made in small batches will find everything they need for a multi-step skincare routine, including cleanser, toner, serum, moisturiser and decadent body and massage oils. Subtle fragrances like calming chamomile and energising jasmine, to name a few, are attributed to the natural ingredients and essential oils that make up Emssence PURE formulas. Founder Marianne Labuschagne formulated and tested multiple batches before fine-tuning what is now the only skincare brand you’ll need on your vanity. 



Mopane Apparel

Vintage denim dreams do come true, and friends of surf, skate and music culture will be delighted to know they hail from our coastline. Mopane Apparel is a small-scale vintage upcycled clothing brand founded in Swakopmund and inspired by the restless Skeleton Coast. Their ethos is simple: quality, expressive, sustainable. And their bespoke line of jean jackets, denim trousers and corduroy tote bags all have a flair of slow living. Upcycled with interesting tapestry inserts, or handmade in the case of their tote bags, Mopane Apparel was made with the cool kids in mind. The only way to do their denim justice is wearing it on road trips, early morning surf missions, to the weekend market and heck, even to the office!
