I’m Mandi and these are my 2 sidekicks. I'm the founder of Z&Tee (named after my 2 kids)

Back in 2016 I had trouble finding nice long sleeve, quick dry polo style “fishing shirts” at the local outdoors shop for my son and I. There was literally 1 choice each for us and nothing I was keen on (iykyk). Z&Tee launched in February 2018 selling a range of clothing and accessories. Just before Christmas I launched a range of kids Construction, Dinosaur and Fairy “Fishing Shirts” and wow were they popular. I started working closely with a local designer coming up with range of designs specifically for kids and women initially. I wanted to create a range of “Fishing Shirts” that didn’t look like well….Fishing Shirts.

In 2022 I got a Basal Cell Cancer (BCC) cut out of my nose. I had gone in for my FIRST skin check. We only need to check the Australian Skin Cancers Stats and start talking about it to realise how common it is. So please do yourself a favour get yourself checked, start the conversation with family and friends and slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade, slide on sunnies it’s as simple as that.

We all need to protect ourselves and loved ones from the sun whenever we can. I know it can be hard work trying to get the kids (and hubby) to be sun safe. Rashies are hard to get on and feel restrictive and let’s face it not really flattering. Getting them to put sunscreen on is always a fight. I love that our designs are bright and fun, we certainly always stand out from the crowd and always get asked about our gear. So cover up in style.

Staying sun safe never looked so damn good!
