Zinc and Co used to be called The Wet Bag Company, which was started in March 2020 by me, Keryn. At the time I was a cloth bum mum to my then 18m old son Albie. I thoroughly enjoyed using modern cloth nappies, but there was a shortage at the time, and it was super addictive to purchase their gorgeous patterns and designs in both nappies and wet bags.
I decided to get my hands on some fabric and started making some wet bags for myself. Shortly after, I was receiving a steady stream of orders using the amazing fabrics you can find here in Australia. I continue to make wet bags beyond my sons toilet training, as I find they are such a versatile item to have in general, especially as a family who enjoys spending time outdoors, in the water and away from home. They are also a great gift as it can be used over and over.
My passion for finding amazing designs led me to find other products to compliment the use of our wet bags. This is how my business became Zinc and Co in mid 2021. To me, the name Zinc brings memories of summer, especially the beach or pool, and especially of the fluro Pink and Green zinc we used to apply to our faces in childhood. We now stock some awesome swimwear and accessories from many Australian retailers, and I continue to hand make wet bags for the business.
