Our Story

Everybody loves summer, the beach and, most importantly, their precious downtime. The beach is the ultimate time-out, chill-out spot.





Charlotte Koep

This is the reason why Charlotte Koep, an attorney with a love for Chilling Winstan and all things beach, decided to ditch the corporate rat race and to start making beach apparel and lifestyle accessories with a difference. Her aim? To brighten up your precious downtime and help you Chill Winstan even more! 





Chill Winstan offers one-of-a-kind, high quality beach and lifestyle apparel, including beach umbrellas, beach bags, beach windbreaks, beach bats, dresses, kaftans, hoodies & more - all designed to enhance your chill time.

Our products are unique, innovative and proudly South African. For the most part, the items are hand-made locally by the women of the Where Rainbows Meet sewing project in Vrygrond, Cape Town, providing sustainable incomes for their families.

We strive to provide products that are not only of the best quality, but also one-of-a-kind. We would love to hear from you, so please contact us.
