The newly launched Spring 2023 collection from Zhik introduces more environmentally friendly water sports and shoreside gear, leading with new ranges of shorts and polo shirts for warm weather activities.

Zhik’s ‘Made for Water’ philosophy underpins this dynamic performance apparel brand’s strategy to make products that are better for the planet, and the company’s equity crowd-funding campaign is raising capital to drive the extensive research, design and innovation work to achieve this.
