Not every story is written in words...
Robin Brown, Magnolia Pearl’s creator and designer, speaks in thread, her mother tongue. Piecing together a life of discarded scraps and torn fragments, Brown built Magnolia Pearl out of sheer hope. Formally launched in 2002, what has grown over the years from these humble beginnings is nothing short of a miracle.
The gratitude and awe in the wake of such wonder is woven into each Magnolia Pearl garment, clothing intended to grace the vastness of the human expression, with an eye to sustainability and ease of movement. Magnolia Pearl’s aim is to attire all with a sense of integrity and lightness, resilience and bewilderment.
Every time you wear Magnolia Pearl you are cocooned in supple encouragement, dressed to reflect the revolution within. The body is our vehicle of experience, the threshold between the known and unknown world. Such a blessed vessel merits protection, soft armor for the divinity shining like a sacred heart from our very breasts.
Magnolia Pearl is about YOU, and how you tell your story.
Our garments are just along for the ride -- pieces of thread and light, sewn summations of surrender, and dreams, with a poem on the sleeve.
Merry People started in 2014 as an idea, born out of frustration, when designer Dani was working at a corporate job in Melbourne, Australia. With the city’s notoriously unreliable weather, she kept wrecking my work shoes and needed a durable and comfortable pair of boots that could withstand her commute and still be suitable to walk into a corporate office.
She started selling very grass-roots, at weekend farmers markets which was hard work (having days with zero or only one or two sales was very deflating!) But the experience taught her so much and gave her the opportunity to meet customers.
Merry People has slowly grown over the following years and Dani feels so grateful for it to be living her own dream adventure - creating a product she genuinely love that makes people happy!
Merry People represents finding what makes you feel happy and alive. Putting your gumboots on, finding your own unique adventure, embracing the unknown and enjoying the journey.
A women's clothing range without seasons, time or age. Every piece of the range is hand made ethically and sustainably. All of the pieces are designed to intertwine and build upon throughout the seasons and years. Each garment is simple, elegant and intended as a canvas for the wearer to imprint her own stamp of expression.
We now employ people both in Australia and abroad, using sustainable fabrics, packaging and ethical practices. Here in the hinterlands of Byron Bay we are on a journey of sustainability. We compost the excess fabrics and off cuts, in addition to sending and presenting your garments in 100% plastic-free compostable packaging. Our labels, twine and tissue paper are all 100% recycled, recyclable or compostable. We use minimal recyclable plastic.

Introducing new boot label ~ Duckfeet
ORIGINAL DANISH SINCE 1975
Danish Duckfeet have been handcrafted for over 40 years.
Duckfeet are simple and functional, representative of mid-20th century Danish design.
No two pairs of Duckfeet are exactly alike. Every pair of boots, shoes, and sandals are naturally tanned and processed by hand, allowing for subtle variations in the leather. These variations are highlighted by the way you wear them, giving each pair its own story.
Our aim is to provide beautifully designed clothing and fabric to fit your lifestyle. Located in the small town of Yandina in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, our store offers locals and visitors alike a range of natural fibre clothing and accessories.
We are passionate about small ethically produced labels of quality with a timeless style. Our hand picked designs in store and online reflect both coastal and country living that embraces natural fibres such as linen, hemp, silk, cotton and rayon.
