Frank and Dolly's
Recently I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with the gorgeous Rach from Frank and Dolly's face to face, and it made me fall in love with them and their label even more.
Frank and Dolly's is an ethical fashion label run by the very special Joel and Rachel Cooper. This extraordinary couple create slow fashion and are transparent about their process! Designer Rachel creates colourful, beautiful designs, and then these are brought to life slowly and carefully by independent makers and dyers. Joel works on the administration, wholesaling, and selling side of things.
Here are the details of how the garments are constructed:
All prices and time frames are set by the Makers, with no ‘middle-man’, but income going direct to the producer/artisan.
Hey Tiger is a premium, handmade, Australian chocolate brand and social enterprise, working to change the cocoa industry and partnering with the Hunger Project to support cocoa farming communities in Ghana.
They create delicious chocolate with unique flavours.
We've been stocking the incredible Simply Alfie for a number of years now at Brown's. They are the creation of Melbourne maker Anthea Fraser who does bright and beautiful water colour images on high quality yupo paper and then sets these incredible pieces in resin. All Anthea's earrings are backed with surgical steel backings, meaning they are great for those with sensitive ears! Earrings on hoops are surgical stainless steel.
Will and Bear
Will & Bear when gorgeous couple Alex and Lauren travelled Australia in a kombi 4 years ago they were inspired to create Will and Bear. Now a high-quality hat brand they are committed to pushing the boundaries of sustainability. By using 100% natural materials and planting 10 trees for every hat sold means that they give back to the community with every purchase.
