The Ged Collection

The word ‘Ged’ comes from the Eastern Island language of the Torres Strait ‘Meriam Mir’ and means ‘Home-place’.

Every detail of The Ged Collection has been inspired by the Torres Strait Islands, its people and their way of life.

The collection consists of four styles:

  • Murray
  • Thursday
  • Friday
  • Prince of Wales

Each style has been named after an island in the Torres Strait.

The seamless cuts of each piece has been carefully constructed to make sure that every ounce of buttery fabric touches the body in the most comfortable and flattering way.

Bringing life to our visions, we created five prints and three solid colors:


  • Island Dress
  • Frangipani Land
  • Damper
  • Trevally
  • Pearly


  • Straits
  • Islanders
  • Box Beach

These were created with precise meaning to tell stories of the unique, beautiful Torres Strait culture and traditions.

This collection hopes to build, confidence, strength and belonging to every body-shape and size. Everyone is welcome to experience this line because after all, StraitSwim is the ged of this collection.
