We’ve been having a spring shake-up here at iSea and we’re excited to let you know about some changes we’re making to our website shop and to announce our new-season line up…
One of the things we love most about meeting you all at shows and festivals, is that we get to hear your feedback, and can change the way we do things to make shopping at iSea even easier for you. With that in mind, we’re bringing our Made to Order range across everything we produce, so you can now buy everything on the website in a range of sizes, and we’ll be introducing new colour choices really soon – so look out for that, too! But never one to mass-produce, all our prints have colour variations and we purposely reposition the prints when cutting, so you can still be sure that your iSea purchase is unique.
It’s tee time!
We trialled our new T-shirts at last month’s Telegraph and Outdoor Travel show and they were a sell-out, so we’ve decided to make them a permanent fixture in the range. We’ve always wanted to offer tees, but it was so expensive to buy in the fabric to make them that didn’t feel we could offer an environmentally-friendly version that was good value too. But, after an extensive search for ethical suppliers, we’re delighted to have found a manufacturer of top quality, organic tees. To buy in t-shirts has been a tough decision for us as everything we sell has always been handmade by us here at the iSea studio, so we needed a really good reason to do anything differently. But we’re confident we’ve found one with these tees, which make the perfect partners for our iSea prints – and we’ve really gone to town on them! We have launched a trial range of men’s and women’s T-shirts on our website today! Check them out here https://www.iseasurfwear.co.uk/shop/womens/womens-organic-cotton-t-shirt/ and here https://www.iseasurfwear.co.uk/shop/mens/mens-organic-cotton-t-shirt/ we will be adding more designs, colours and sizes really soon and T-shirts for kids too.

Swarming with ideas…
We’ve been out in the garden and up in the roof to find inspiration for our new prints. Coastal flowers and bees are creating a buzz in the iSea Studio. After getting advice from a local bee-keeper about the resident honey bees in her cottage eves, (he assured her that honeybees rarely sting when swarming,) Anna braved it and stood amongst the swarm to take close-up photos of them so she could draw from them for the latest iSea prints. That is dedication for you!

Slightly less adventurous, (but still very Anna!), midnight photography excursions around the garden inspired the latest flower prints: “I love taking photos of nature at night time – it’s so peaceful, with the sound of the waves crashing against the pebbles in the distance, everything looks so different in the dark and you can pick up some great detail with torchlight.”
You’ll find these new prints across our spring range which includes our popular Jersey hoody dress which is always a good-seller at this time of year. Part of our made-to-measure collection, this longer-length hooded dress is ideal for wearing with leggings and is a good transitional piece as we go from chilly spring evenings into summer days.
Our summer-weight leggings and yoga style trousers will be hitting the shop soon – look out for some fab new colours and fun sea creature designs, and we’ve just added new shark prints across our product range. T-shirts and reversible hoodies, feature rock climbers, mountain bikers and wave prints, too. And there’s plenty to keep the kids looking cute, with new campervan designs, sea creatures and mermaids across our t-shirts, reversible hoodies, leggings and dresses.
Show much fun!
We’re looking forward to getting back on the road and meeting you all again this summer. You can always find limited edition prints and custom-made one-offs at our stand, so keep an eye on our Facebook page to find out where we’ll be. https://www.iseasurfwear.co.uk/festivals-events/
