Our Makers

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.

The Cotton is all grown in Indonesia, and woven at the Printing House. They are working on their official Organic Certification at the moment, and go to the Cotton Farms direct, purchase the yarn and then weave it at their workshop. The Rayon is processed in Indonesia, from all natural materials. 

We chose this company as the supply chain was only 3 steps and all local to Indonesia.. making its footprint on the planet light.

Step 1 -Farmer

Step 2 -Weaver/Dyer/PrinterStep

The pieces are digitally printed and ethically made. The dyes are water based reactive inks that are certified with Oeko-tex Standard 100.

Hey Tiger

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. 

Simply Alfie 

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.
