In 2015, when the last of our combined 7 children hit pre-primary, my sister Catherine and I decided to put our heads together to construct a bag we believed would be perfect for our own active families.
Something stylish, robust and practical that could get all our gear to and from the beach, boat, picnics, swimming lessons, sports and other social activities.
After many months of design, we came up with The Cove Carry-all Bag. The bag needed to be constructed with materials that allowed it to be free standing, as well as water resistant and durable, but still comfortable to hold against skin. 
We also felt our design needed secure pockets for keys and devices, an insulated pocket for a water bottle (or wine), and although it needed to be durable, it still had to look good enough to take from the beach to the bar.
While establishing the Cove Carry-all, we had another idea brewing.  We had noticed how stunning it felt to stand on the kid's wetsuits at the beach. So we came up with the idea of making picnic blankets out of NEOPRENE to which we added some of our enlarged natural photographic images. The product has turned out to be extremely versatile. We are now collaborating with different artists, which has been amazingly inspirational and has taken our picnic blankets to the next level. 
Most recently, through need, demand and a creative bent we designed and manufactured The Cove Traveller and The Cove Mini as the ultimate smaller companions for life's journeys.  They have everything the Cove Carry-all has in a smaller package.  We are in love with this new design and use them everyday.
We believe the time we spent on the design, prototypes and redesign, is now paying off.  We are flattered to be able to claim 90% of our sales are through positive word of mouth.
Kindest regards,
Anna and Cath xx
