Behind Basil Bangs
Posted on May 09 2018
Meet the dynamic duo behind Australian lifestyle brand Basil Bangs!
Sydney based husband/wife, founder/boss duo Krista Huebner and Mike Durante started this Australian beach inspired brand back in 2010. "A love for vintage umbrellas and a pursuit of great design inspired the vision for creating a collection of ‘contemporary classics’, a range of beach umbrellas inspired by the 1960’s and 70’s but decisively modern in engineering and finishes."
Now 8 years on the range has expanded from the "classic" beach umbrella into a full lifestyle range. With the addition of indoor/outdoor cushions, patio umbrellas, love rugs, tote bags and rain umbrellas there is something for all seasons.
Collaboration is a word that is well known in the Basil office. They have worked with many Australian and international artists/designers to create some truly special pieces, including prints from Amelia Graham, Sarah Ellison, Louise Jones, Cynthia Rowley, Lucas Grogan, Gray Malin, Kip & Co., Jonathan Zawada & Kelsey Brookes.
The Tessuti range from their latest collection is a range that is close to their hearts as the fabric is milled and woven in an Italian village close to where Mikes family hail from. Pop a deck chair and a Tessuti umbrella up anywhere and you may as well be on the Amalfi Coast (Don't forget the Aperol Spritz!).
