Brooke and Prue Needham are two of six children raised on the northern beaches of Sydney, who frequently visited the beach with their mum to run, dance, play and tumble about in the waves.
For holidays their dad, former race car driver and Bathurst winner, Bert Needham shuttled them to warm, exotic destinations like Fiji, Noumea, Hawaii, Bali and Thailand …. as he said “We were like fish…always had to be near the water!”, said Prue.
Tahitian Lime range is proudly designed in Australia, with textiles sourced from Italy. The Tahitian Lime sisters are mad animal lovers and 10% of profits are distributed directly to assist underprivileged and mistreated animals in developing countries. For 2016 & 2017, Brooke and Prue chose BARC, the non-profit ‘Bali Dog Adoption and Rehabilitation Centre’ hosted by Australian-born Indonesian citizen Linda Buller.
An innate love of the ocean and nomadic family lifestyle lead them to water. Their feminine instincts led them to fashion. Their combined loves lead to Tahitian Lime, their swimwear label that officially launched in 2016. They now reside in the tropics of Port Douglas, where Tahitian Lime’s head office and design HQ is located. Their staff includes eight dogs … Esmerelda Coconut, Frankie Alabama, Sugar Sinatra, Jett King, Baxter Boo, Mowgli Mufasa, Trigger Nomerty & Rusty Rucas!
