Hood Guise

2 years ago my husband, an avid kite surfer, came home with a microfiber changing towel. He was so excited that he bought one for all his kite surfing and surfing friends that year as birthday presents. Our boys (also keen swimmers and surfers) also wanted towels but at the price at the time I decided I would make them towels instead. Sewing is a hobby and so I proceeded to purchase 2 ordinary bath towels (as well as a hand towel for the hood) and sewed them together. They worked brilliantly, except for the fact that they were very heavy and very bulky! By this time my husband was complaining about his bought towel. It was too small, it didn’t dry, it was too tight around the neck and it was too short. Our friends made the same comments and reverted back to using an ordinary cotton towel.

This is when I saw an opportunity and decided to rectify all the complaints and make towels that were light weight, super absorbent, longer than the standard towel and roomy enough in size to be able to get changed easily. The other key factor was to make a towel that was more affordable than the imported version available in surf stores. This was not as easy as I thought as the correct fabric was not available locally. After months of research I found the perfect material.

Our Hood Guise towels are made from imported fabric but still support the local manufacturing industry by producing the towels locally. We hope you enjoy your towel as much as we do.

one life swim it logo

One Life Swim It

Hi there fellow swimmer, I am Cyndi Starr. My life has always been based around swimming. Since a young age, I have been known among the competitive field, and now I keep myself busy as a full time swimming coach / stroke analyst and business owner of my own swimming brand called – One Life Swim It.

The original concept for this new brand came from my teenage years when my father designed my very own set of hand paddles for training as we couldn’t afford paddles back then. A few years later, I was spotted training at the gym with my original paddles and was asked if I would be willing to make more paddles and sell them to swimmers. Over the years, these swimming paddles became unique and quite popular among my swimmers and have grown into my brand.

I have since then added to the brand as I have always wanted a swimming cap that meant something to me personally. I then designed the logo with a butterfly swimmer and a heart line to match the name of my brand. If you know me well enough, you would know that I have a medical condition and with this I am unable to race competitively in certain heart rate zones, however, I still swim competitively on a masters level taking up the odd few challenges. I own some South African Masters swimming records, which keeps me honest in the pool. I also enjoy the outdoor and open water swimming. I will always be a swimmer by heart, as swimming has given me a family of friends and a life I enjoy being part of. No matter where you are in life, or how fast you go in the pool, I will always encourage you to swim with heart.

You have One Life Swim It … Tra La La

van h logo

Van H

VanH was born when the founders, the van Hoven’s, got married and wrote van H on our wedding invitations. The two fell deeply in love with the signature that marked their special day and decided to register it as a trademark.

From there the idea and small acts of making cycling kits and t-shirts for friends and family was fostered and developed into a commercial brand that produces and sells Van H clothing.

We love coffee, steel bikes, creative challenges and living life to the fullest with our four kids.
