What is a girl to do when she can't find sun protective wear for her whole family (yes, larger sizes too) and then is faced with surviving one of the most disastrous droughts on record. Julie and her family's story is amazing. A wonderful Australian story set in outback Qld. Not the location you'd expect to find makers of Rashies, Swim Shorts and Swim Tops for women and men!
Ilfracombe is about 1150kms NW of Brisbane; its closest 'big town' is Longreach, 30kms away. Now that's a long trip to the Post Office!
"The initial Coola Cozzies idea seeded ten years ago when we couldn't find quality board shorts and rashies/sun shirts as Christmas presents for our fair skinned family." Says Julie.
All of us at Coola Cozzies have had basal cell carcinomas(BCC's) removed, and we have lost a dear friend to melanoma. Being SunSmart is a priority for us and we want to help spread the SunSmart message. Our Coola Cozzies rashies and sun shirts are approved UPF50+ by ARPANSA, providing excellent protection."
Coola Cozzies have been designed in bright colours and a comfortable fit, because they are Cozzies we want to wear. We want people of all ages, sizes and skin types to be able to enjoy the benefits of water with confidence."
Summer is set to be yet another long hot scorcher and we hope that this fabulous outback Queensland range of sun protection swimwear will help you to enjoy yours even more.
