BILLABONG AND BAGABOND CREATE A UNIQUE, HANDCRAFTED LIMITED EDITION SERIES OF SURFBOARD COVERS AND WETSUIT BAGS
Billabong and Bagabond have joined forces to create a signature series of unique handmade surfboard covers and wetsuit bags. Bagabond use vintage and reclaimed fabrics to create covers for girls who want to protect their treasured surf craft and travel in style.
The limited edition series, which fits perfectly into Billabong’s Summer 13 Surf Capsule range of cheeky wetsuits and sporty bikinis, feature unique handmade pieces made with real love and personal passion by Bagabond’s owner Toyah Marshall.
"The majority of the fabric I use is vintage as some of the prints are beautiful," said Marshall. "The boardbags all come fully lined and with padding in the noses to give the board that extra bit of protection."
The wetsuit bags too were inspired by the lack of colour and creativity in the traditional covers. "My boyfriend has one of those typical big black wetsuit bags and I really wanted one but something that would double as a cool beach bag," Marshall said.
The end result is a limited edition series that is feminine and durable, funky and practical. The Billabong and Bagabond collaboration limited edition series will be on sale in stores from May.
The Billabong x Bagabond products are available exclusively at selected Billabong Stores:
Billabong Bordeaux, Billabong Hossegor, Anglet, Billabong Biarritz, Billabong St Jean, Billabong Toulouse, Billabong Marseille & Billabong Barcelona
