Barefoot and Salty is owned by a local Sunshine Coast Mum who has a love for the beach, the bush and of course being barefoot. The name Barefoot and Salty is inspired by our lifestyle. Our family of 3 are known as being those people who walk barefoot everywhere. We live by the water and are always on the water. We crave adventure, live to be wild and just love the beach.
We are the most relaxed family you'll ever meet, we're always smiling, laughing, soaking in the sun and just LOVE being outside. We never thought we'd start this business and to be honest not many other people did either, we definitely don't follow current fast fashion trends and have our own style. This is our new love and we have truly find our passion in life.
Every design is a reflection of us, our designs are what we truly love. When you wear Barefoot & Salty you are wearing apart of us, You're wearing threads that is designed for the thrill seekers, the sun chasers and salt addicts.
We hope to help put a end to fast fashion, that is why our pieces are generous sizing and look great as a loose fit or as snug fit. We also don't only stock by the season we currently are in or have end of season sales. If we love a design we keep it for a year or so, it is time to stop fast fashion.
We all love dressing up our babies, but many bands prices definitely come with a grain of salt. So that is when we decided to create Barefoot and Salty. Many people cannot afford nice clothes, so we set out to offer boutique style clothing at a price.
Our outfits are named after local bubbas or fellow salt seekers and are gender neutral with the exception of a few outfits for the mermaids.
We design and source every item from our tiny two bedroom home that we call our river shack. When you buy from us, you are getting apart of us and we love that!
Our pieces are ethnically handmade by a small family owned business. They only use high quality fabrics that are gentle for your little ones. We have spent countless hours searching for the right company to make our products. Through many trial and error we choose a small and environmentally conscious business to make our products over a large cheaper manufacturer.
We care for this beautiful place we call earth. We are always trying to find new ways to do our bit. That is why you will never see us use unnecessary packaging or single use items. Everything we do use has a purpose and can be reused.
We have tried and tested every piece on with the help of local families to ensure that our little wild ones are happy and comfortable.
We cannot wait to see your gorgeous babies in our outfits.
Our range is not just for the salt loving bub but also for the bush bub, Barefoot and Dirty hehe.
There’s only one way to be & that’s Barefoot & Salty

hehe yes I know we aren't barefoot & salty in these photos but to get a photo of us as a family is as rare as a white peacock - we normally are in the moment and forget to get photos. So here's some old ones.
