Hi there, thanks for all who read and had a think about my last post!

To answer some of the emails I have received…
Someone asked if I have my clothing made in Indonesia. Yes, some of it is made in Bali, and some in Australia. The reason for this is that some of the styles I create unfortunately can’t be made in Australia as the workmanship in things like embroidery and beading is so skilled, that we have not been able to find anyone in Australia that can do it!

Many village girls in Bali grow up doing these crafts, and are experts at their handywork. The clothing we produce in Bali is always made under happy working conditions, and fair pay.

Some of our clothing is made right here in our office! I have been working on some cute little vintage fabric numbers over the past couple of weeks to top up our boutiques in time for the Christmas holidays! You’ll be able to find these little undies and skirts on our website very soon, or in your local Mother Maria stockist.

Here are some piccy’s of my work space and my work…
